Life Beyond the Tomb Exhibition Evaluation 2005
That is a difficult question to answer as we are still living so much in the old. Indeed, our being in the old world that has still not passed away makes our fidelity to the new world, into which we are invited by Jesus, fragile and sometimes faltering.
The new often loses its specific character, its contours blur and its distinct character dissolves as our rootedness in the old overshadows the light of the new. Whereas the old world is suffocating, dark and often hopeless, provoking anxiety and sadness, the new world is one in which horizons are open, flooded with light and joy, evoking hope.
Death is the reality of the old world, a reality where the horizon is blocked; and resurrection is the reality of the new, where the horizon stretches to where heaven and earth touch.
The dead body of Jesus was laid in a tomb, dark, dank and closed in. Jesus really died!
He did not pass through death or act dead, but he truly died as a human being dies. His death, burial and descent into the place of the dead constitute an essential element in his birth, death and resurrection. Many have struggled to understand what it means for Jesus, after his death on the cross, to have descended into hell.
This is a reference to passages in the New Testament that talk of a descent into the kingdom of the dead after the death of Christ. Sheol in the Old Testament is described as a dark and suffocating place under the earth. Isaiah spoke of Sheol as a place of imprisonment behind gates Isaiah , the Book of Job describes it as a place behind bars Job and the Psalm describes cords and snares that entangle Psalm Solomon describes a place of inactivity, where there is no work and no thought Ecclesiastes It is a place of silence Psalm Most characteristically, Sheol is a place where there is no praise of God.
Jesus experiences the reality of the tomb and that of Sheol as an essential part of the incarnation through which he enters fully into our human lives. The reality of the tomb is a human reality we fully know in death. However, before we die, we can and often do choose death over life over and over again. We are enslaved to the consequences of our wrong choices. In these choices, the tomb is palpable, a reality of darkness, sin and fear.
It is this exit from a place of imprisonment and slavery that the Jewish people celebrate at Passover. Their exit from Egypt is a breaking out of the prison of slavery. The word for Egypt in Hebrew Mitzrayim evokes the word for narrow and confining tzar. It is thus completely coherent that Jesus the Jew chose the Passover as the time to pass from death to life. At Easter, we are invited to renew our commitment to the new world born from the tomb.
We are called to burst out of the tomb into life, leaving behind us a tomb that is empty.
