Two years had passed since Paul had been arrested in Jerusalem and imprisoned in Caesarea. At this point, Paul understood that the tension between himself and the Jews was primarily caused by Christ’s resurrection (Acts 25:18-19). I can’t help but think of the powerful words: “He is risen!” It wasn’t just a one-time occurrence. Ever since Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He is risen. Not just alive. Risen. He conquered death, and it no longer looms. He is risen on that first Easter morning. He is risen on the day of Paul’s trial. He is risen today. I’m not even sure that verb tense would be possible apart from the power of God. Our minds can hardly fathom it, but our spirits – filled with His Spirit – beat with the faith that it’s true: He is risen, indeed!
