Slow down. In our rush to get from his death, Good Friday, to his Resurrection, Easter Sunday, we skip over one of the most important aspects of the revelation. Indeed, the fact that we killed him but he did not stay dead is important. However, equally important is the fact that we tortured him but he did not stop loving us.
We could have pissed him off. We could have triggered his revenge reflex. Yet, we did not.
