The Bible is full of foreshadowing.  It's a big part of the Sunday readings, where the Old Testament is often a preview of the Gospel.  Sometimes the preview is a general theme, other times it's more direct, and occasionally it's almost literal. 

It's like that with Easter.  And with something as big as the Resurrection, there's a lot of foreshadowing. 

In both Testaments, the general idea of resurrection is a repeating theme.  There's also more direct foreshadowing, like with Lazarus.  But an almost literal preview of the Resurrected Jesus?  The Transfiguration. 

Which is why we don't hear about doubting Peter (or doubting James or John).  When they see the Resurrected Jesus, they have no doubts.  They've seen this before. 

More on this tomorrow.
