An American visiting churches in Hungary worshipped one Sunday in a little house church near Budapest. After the service they said, “There is a man here you must meet. He is the man who came back from the dead.” The story was that the man was in the hospital and declared dead. Just as they were putting the sheet over him, they saw the flicker of an eyelid. They resuscitated him, he recovered, and there he was in church that Sunday. Of course they knew, as we do, that there really was a Man who came back from the dead; and you can meet Him in any church on any Sunday.
