Glad Påsk!

Vi har väl inte glömt varför vi firar påsk? Nej, det är inte för att hylla haren eller visa vördnad för kokta ägg.

H. G. Wells, den kände science fiction-författaren, hade följande att säga om påskens huvudperson:

I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.

The doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed human thought.

All four Gospels agree in giving us a picture of a very definite personality. One is obliged to say, ”Here was a man. This could not have been invented.”

Is it any wonder that to this day this Galilean is too much for our small hearts?
