This Sunday's Gospel recalls a visit Christ made that revealed that he was someone special, someone close to God whose house they were desecrating, and whom he even called his Father. In hidden language he told them that they would put him to death but that that would not be the end, for he would rise again. Some of them seem to have remembered this saying of his after they had put him to death, for they asked Pilate to place a guard on his tomb lest his disciples should remove the body and pretend he had risen for: "we recall," they said, "that this impostor said while he was still living, 'after three days I shall rise again."' But even the miracle of his resurrection did not affect the majority of them. They had made up their minds and "there are none so blind as those who will not see."
