Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
It was not stubbornness which kept the disciples from believing; it was the overwhelming ascendency of reason; reason which knows and experiences that death and burial is final. Though Jesus had raised Lazarus and others, now Jesus himself was dead. Who can raise him? A dead man cannot raise himself; it is not possible. But when Jesus reveals himself to his disciples, he drives out the mastery of reason even as he had driven out demons, and replaces it with faith, by whose governance reason is sanctified and all things in life all under the sway of faith which has now learned first of all of the resurrection of Jesus.
