This is the episode is part 36 and the final part of a study of the gospel of Luke. You can’t keep a good man down. Jesus refuses to remain dead, much to the surprise of his disciples who were ready to embalm the body and move on with their lives. Jesus turns the defeat of Good Friday into the ultimate victory of Easter.

I love what NT Wright says about the physicality of the resurrection: if Jesus is nothing more than a ghost or specter, then he hasn’t conquered death. He’s just plain dead. It is the fish-eating, wound-touchable, physicality – strange and new though it may be – that makes the event of the resurrection what the first Christians claimed it to be.
I love the language of that “fish-eating, wound-touchable, physicality” 🙂
