Event description

Description

Jesus’s resurrection is the heart and foundation of our faith as Christians: as St Paul said, if Christ was not raised from the dead, then our faith is in vain. Resurrection is central not only to what we believe about God and Jesus, but to our understanding of ourselves: if we believe in resurrection, nothing can ever be the same again.

In this reflective day, Paula Gooder will look at each of the four Gospels’ startlingly different accounts of the resurrection. In each one, Jesus has different encounters with his friends and followers, from the women who first met him at the empty tomb on Easter morning, through his followers recognising him in the breaking of the bread that evening, to the later encounters with his frightened, doubting and ultimately joyful disciples.

Paula will lead us on a biblical exploration of what resurrection means, what it teaches us about life and death, and ultimately what it actually means to be a Christian.

Dr Paula Gooder is a renowned Biblical Scholar and Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral. She is the author of numerous academic and popular books of Biblical theology, including Journey to the Empty Tomb and This Risen Existence: the Spirit of Easter (both Canterbury Press).

The day includes reflective worship, lunch and other refreshments and takes place at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine in Limehouse, East London (www.rfsk.org.uk). We are very grateful to St Katharine’s for their hospitality in co-hosting our reflective days.
