the word “resurrection” literally means “to stand up.” This has vast and profound implications for us. The resurrection means that someone is always standing up for us, no matter how bad life gets. One can never say that he is without hope, so long as one person is standing up for him.

 
Jesus “stands up” in the middle of Mary’s sorrow.
 
Jesus “stands up” in the middle of the disciple’s fear
 
Jesus “stands up” in the middle of Thomas’ doubt.
 
Jesus “stands up” in the middle of the disciple’s failure.
