All too often we receive an offer that seems too good to be true, too many strings attached. This notion dates from the 1500s, when the plague filled decades and cruelly divided societies left men with no hope. But Pastor David Ball reminds us in this message that the cynicism of that phrase goes back much further — to Jesus. When He turned up after His resurrection, that seemed too good to be true. In time Jesus’ followers, understanding the facts as shared by Jesus, grasped that they too would rise again, recognizing the reality that these facts are too good NOT to be true.
