During this pandemic many people have experienced the fear of death and dying. Many have lost a loved one — whether due to COVID or some other cause. Death is stronger than all of us. Is there anyone stronger than Death? Where can we find certain hope of eternal life in the midst of the certainty of death? The next story in our Encountering Jesus series is found in Luke 7:11-17. It is the story of Jesus’ encounter with the widow of Nain whose only son had just died. In this story we see Jesus’ compassion and his power and authority over Death.
