Is, was written

After Luke 24:44-49

It is written, just
as it was written,
the entire story,
the entire point
and explanation
and purpose,
mine and yours:
I suffer and die.

Then the gamechanger:

On the third day,
the rising.
What follows:
the proclamation,
the good news
of repentance
for forgiveness
of sins,
a proclamation
to all, all nations,
all peoples,
beginning in the city
of death and the city
of the rising from
the death.

And the clincher:

You are the witnesses,
and you will be sent
on the mission
you’ve already accepted.
