Later that evening, all of the disciples “scandalized” Jesus. They scattered, hid and bore the pain and guilt of all that took place. Three days later an angel appeared to the women at the empty tomb. His message: “Tell the disciples that Jesus is waiting on them in Galilee.” Can you imagine the joy and burden lifted from the disciples? Jesus was waiting on them in Galilee. Galilee. Let’s go to Galilee.
And Judas? Well, he never made it back to Galilee. And for this reason Jesus called him the “son of perdition.”
What about you? Easter is approaching. In the next couple of weeks we will be journeying to Gethsemane, Golgotha, and the empty tomb. But don’t forget Galilee. Do you need to go to Galilee? Oh, please, don’t forget to go to Galilee. Always remember, no matter how scandalous the scandal, Jesus is waiting for you there.
