About Jesus Christ resurrection
As a Renaissance artist, Hans Memling (1433-1494) painted “The Triptych of Resurrection“. Completed in 1490, this symbolically-rich artwork can be viewed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.
Easter Sunday celebrates Jesus resurrection from the dead after his crucifixion by the Romans on Friday. The resurrection symbolizes the victory of life over death, along with the hope of renewal. For Christians, the resurrection miracle is part of Jesus life as planned by God The Father. One of the great Christian symbols is the cross. The vertical line symbolizes the eternity of time and the horizontal line the infinity of space. The crossing point represents a soul incarnation in a given place and at a definite time. The same happened to every one of us when we were born. While Jesus incarnation came from the sky (vertical line), our birth originated from the earth (horizontal line). The cross will be associated with Jesus existence from his divine incarnation at birth to his crucifixion and resurrection. By extension, the cross is a powerful symbol of Christian faith and hope.
About Jesus and Moses miracles
Both Jesus miracle of resurrection and Moses miracle of parting the Red Sea mean that life is more important than death. Jesus miracle is focused on the cross central point, the incarnation of all humans one at the time. Moses who was found as a baby in a basket along the Nile river, can be associated with bodies of water, such as the Red Sea, Like the water immensity, Moses miracle symbolizes collective survival.
Creation is a miracle of daily recurrence. ‘A miracle a minute’ would not be a bad slogan for God. –George Bernard Shaw
We all experience occasional rocky moments in our life, where we may feel like being crucified. During those hardship days, Jesus resurrection gives us reasons to keep our hope and faith alive while waiting for a miracle to happen. Until then, we will have to endure the carrying of our cross until a part of us will die for another to be reborn.
Last week we celebrated Passover. Whether you are following Jesus or Moses miracles, you will always find messages of hope in the difficult moments of your life.
Long live renewal and happy Eastern to all of you.
In light and harmony. Always, Serge
