Jobs and Jesus

Steve Jobs 2005 Stanford Address

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.  (Stanford Address 2005)

No One???

I guess in a sense Steve Jobs is correct that no one has escaped death, however there is only one who has ever beat death and lived to tell about it.

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed. Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” (John 20:27)

In order to live we must die and in order to die we must live, this is the paradox of living and dying.
