Day 16: Death

θάνατος — thanatos

  1. Physical or spiritual death: death.
  2. Death of the spiritual part in man, practically the annihilation of personality: death

In a bitter twist that brought the world to its knees, stunned and questioning, the Son of God hung  tortured and dead. All our hopes were pinned on him: angels sang at his birth, the Holy Spirit descended on him at his baptism, he cast out demons, healed the sick, raised the dead — he was going to save us.

And he’s dead.

He’s not like Westley, mostly dead. Jesus was completely and utterly gone.

How bitter a disappointment in what we had been told was the Epic Saga of Redemption.

Our hero, dead.

What now?
