Amidst the trials and uncertainties of individual human lives, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus can sometimes seem like a great play written by God, where the actors are assigned fixed parts. Yet this is to make a travesty out of these great events. In entering our world and sharing its suffering in Jesus, God accepts the uncertainty and unpredictability which are part of the human lot. The resurrection of Jesus is a sign of unexpected hope beyond final despair.
