What is this “little while” of which Jesus speaks? Early Church Writers suggest that Jesus is vague on purpose. His death will be brutal and he protects his disciples from the reality of crucifixion.
There is certainly nothing vague about St. Paul. He preaches Christ crucified. If we reject it, the dark responsibility is ours’. If we accept it like Aquila and Priscilla and Titus Justus, then their great joy is ours’. Or, in the words of some writers, Resurrection faith makes us laugh too!
