Death poses a question over every human life. Why do we live; why do we die; will our living have a meaning that goes beyond death; will it have been a success of a failure? In one way or another, we all want an answer to this conundrum. Jesus meets us with his claim to be the answer to these deeply human questions. He thrills us as he does so since he seems at once to be convincingly human, and more than human. He invites us to 'cross over' with him, into life on an entirely new level. and isn't that what we were always looking for?
