The Resurrection Body (John 20:19-31)
April 22, 2012 Length: 19:40
On the eighth day after Pascha, we remember the appearance of the resurrected Christ to St Thomas and the apostles. Fr Tom reminds us that, as Orthodox Christians, we live in expectant hope of our own resurrection to eternal life, Christ Himself being the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep, the first-born of the dead.
"I am the pastor of a Baptist church. Yet, I don't start my day without meditation, prayer, and scripture with this wonderful music playing. I have a deep admiration for Orthodoxy as you are the original church and gave us the precious jewel of the Holy Bible."
