Why Are You Crying? - Midtown

We finish the series, "The Questions Jesus Asked" today with the question "Why Are You Crying."
So have you ever thought of the Easter story as a tear-jerker? I never did until we looked at the Questions Jesus Asks during Lent. Normally we don’t continue a Lent series to Easter Day, but the first words spoken by the risen Christ in the Gospel of John are a question. He asks, “Woman, why are you weeping?” Jesus says this to Mary, who was first asked this question by angels in the tomb. The story of Easter begins with tears.
