Scot McKnight on the meaning of Easter!

http://www.patheos.com/community/jesuscreed/2011/04/28/what-difference-does-easter-make/

Scot McKnight, a new testament scholar, poses some great thoughts about Easter. I love the opening question and think every Christian and church should have to answer it:
We tend to be Good Friday in our gospel: Jesus died for us.
We tend to be Good Friday Christians too: my sins are forgiven.
What good is Easter? What difference does the resurrection make for life today?
The church is decisively Good Friday... it is when the church can answer and live out the question at hand, then we will move beyond this rut we're in.

Happy reading and blessings!
