But actually, as threatening as death might seem, at least we know what it looks like. Resurrection is a little unnerving, unsettling, because it basically goes against what we know, contradicts everything we take to be absolute about the nature of history and the reality in which we live. It’s a toppling of earthly order, overthrowing familiarity. It doesn’t play according to the rules we accept as necessary. If the dead can come back to life, if that rule is broken,what does that mean about all the other realities, rules, that order our lives, that we take for granted?
