Molly Sabourin - "The table is full-laden; feast ye all sumptuously", said St. John in his Paschal homily. The goal is to enjoy life in light of the truth of the resurrection!
Dr. Bradley Nassif - From Pascha to Pentecost, Orthodox Christians greet each other with the words "Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen!" What do those words mean? Dr. Nassif identifies three timeless truths about the Resurrection of Christ:
- Christ is forever alive.
Christ conquered death.
Christ will be the Judge of the living and the dead.
Listen to what these three truths mean in the teaching of the New Testament.
Dr. Bradley Nassif - In this follow-up podcast, Dr. Nassif offers insights into the meaning of the resurrection for our everyday lives. Following St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 15, he reminds us that the gospel must always be of "first importance" in all we do as Christians. "Christ is Risen!" must always be the very core of everything we do in life and liturgy. That is one reason why the Sunday of St. Thomas offers us this lesson: We must not only confess the Orthodox faith; we must also personally entrust our lives to Jesus Christ as our Lord and our God!
Fr. Thomas Hopko - On this, the greatest of all Feast Days, Fr. Thomas explains what we, as Orthodox Christians, know for certain about Jesus Christ.
