The Meaning & Challenge of Resurrection

We now live with two images of the Resurrection—the Individual Tradition of Jesus arising alone in the Western Tradition, and the Universal Tradition of Jesus arising and raising with him all-humanity represented by Adam and Eve.

And with the historic rise in violence?
