The gospel of Mark offers a unique look at the Resurrection. It is one that leads us to the mystery of an empty tomb and then leaves us with a promise. The promise is that he who is risen goes before us, that we may very well meet him along life's way. That promise can be both comforting and disconcerting. If Jesus lives, that alone changes everything. That alone ought to be enough to disrupt and forever change the way we live our lives. If Jesus were to show up and make himself know, that surely, would take our lives in directions we never imagined.
