The Ministries of Death and Life

From the Readings of this week, Nate Jones addresses the subjects of Ezekiel's vision of the Dry Bones and the raising of Lazarus from the dead in such a way that we can understand why "the Lazarus event" would sealed the resolve of Christ's enemies to put him to death. Nate addresses the issues at stake between a religious power-center and the challenge Jesus' ability to raise the dead poses to their concept of the Jewish National project of his day. Here is a glimpse into our own contemporary religious presuppositions and how we might find ourselves challenged by the only One who can raise the dead.
