Khristos Anesti dear tasebha folk.
I have so many questions for you.
a) Why did Christ tell Mary Magdalene: "Do not touch me" after He appeared to her in the garden, the morning of His Glorious Resurrection?
What was the problem with touching Him? St Thomas even put his finger on Christ's wound.
b) Then He tells her: I am going to "My God and Your God, my Father and Your Father". I think when He says "to my God" - its not as a term of worship, but it is an affirmation of His Sonship - i.e. that He is from God. Can anyone confirm this? Or am i totally wrong?
c) Why does he ask the Father to "forgive them" whilst He's on the cross? Surely He could forgive them? My 2 cents is that He intercedes for us to the Father, and this is just another example of that - or am I mistaken?
