Rev. Dustin Beck, pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Warda, TX joins host Rev. Timothy Appel for Sharathon 2022 to study the Easter hymn, “O Sons and Daughters of the King.”
This joyful Easter hymn tells the account of what happened on the day of Jesus’ resurrection and one week later. The faithful women went to Jesus’ tomb early in the morning on the first day of the week; there they were met by the angel who told them the news of Jesus’ resurrection. They told that news to the apostles, to whom Jesus Himself appeared with His peace that same evening. Thomas refused to believe, so Jesus came again to show Himself to Thomas in order to give Thomas the same peace. Thomas exclaimed in faith, “My Lord and my God!” That same faith is given to us today through the Word. Though we have not seen, we are blessed to believe. By Christ’s resurrection, we are children of the heavenly kingdom who rejoice in the eternal life Jesus has won and given to us.
