This morning's reading from the scripture needs very little introduction. You know what you came to hear. Allow me simply to remind you of the themes of Matthew: righteousness and discipleship. Following Jesus is not about what we think but about how we live. Resurrection is the final piece of that. The author of the book of Matthew wants his audience to really get how important this moment is so he packs in all the drama he can: an earthquake, and an angel who rolls away a stone, big burly military men fainting in fear. An angelic invitation to "fear not" and a proclamation of the significance of Jesus, just like we had at his birth. And to prove that the message of the gospel is for all and that it will turn the world upside down, the good news is given to the first women preachers. And it doesn't matter that their testimony wouldn't be accepted by a court, because the resurrection isn't something we prove.
