This has been on my mind for a while. If you have an answer I'd love to hear it...
Why did Jesus teach first, then go through the crucifixion and resurrection?
Why didn't He do it the other way around? Think about it, if Jesus rose from the dead then taught us how to live, wouldn't people be all over it? If He got a crowd by doing a few miracles, what if people saw Him die and rise again? Wouldn't that be instant followers?
Maybe those aren't the followers Christ is looking for, He wants those who choose to do what's right when there aren't signs and wonders.
Maybe people would be so in awe of the resurrection they wouldn't listen to the teaching.
Maybe I should shut up and accept that God knows what He's doing...
Just something in my head lately, especially with having just celebrated Easter.
