"On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.' " Then they remembered his words (Luke 24:1-8 KJV)."
"I Thirst" - Easter reflection by Rev. Greg Asimakoupoulos
'Twas the Night before Easter!--by Peggie . . . Easter devotions and resources
NOTE: "'Twas the Night before Easter," ficticious in nature, is based on the true, Biblical story of Jesus and His Resurrection, found in John 20:1-31. These Scriptures are courtesy of WWW Bible Gateway where you may also read the full narrative from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The Lost Tomb and the Living Lord!Now I know Jesus was lost in the temple as a little boy, but a "lost tomb"?? I learned, from early Sunday school days, that Jesus died on the Cross, was laid to rest in a borrowed tomb; that He lay there for three days and three nights, sealed by a Roman seal, guarded by a Roman guard, and raised from the dead on the third day, according to the Scriptures!
I'm a born-again Christian; I believe in the validity of God's Word; nothing more, nothing less. God does not need us to defend Him and His Word; it is truth and stands throughout the ages to proclaim that Christ is indeed alive; He has conquered death forever more.
A coming documentary and certain recent news articles arise to tell us that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene; that he had a son named Judah; that DNA proves WHATEVER....but it's not in the Word of God. And how do we as Christians react?
Christians arise from the four corners of our world to proclaim not a lost tomb but a Living Lord......read the news articles below and the Christian commentary that follows, along the Bible study links of apologetics and theology found on the Internet...enjoy faith-related devotionals and let us celebrate the Resurrection of Our Living Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords forevermore!
