“AND THEY FOUND THE STONE ROLLED AWAY FROM THE TOMB,” LUKE 24:2

     I googled “Easter 2010” and spent an hour trying to find a good Easter story to post.  Many had political themes.  Many focused on egg hunts and special recipes.  I guess people eat a lot at Easter.

Why not go to the source?  The next nine verses of Luke 24 describe the reason for the hope of mankind.  Without the resurrection of Jesus, we would be lost. -CR

“But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.  And 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 perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;  and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, ‘Why do you seek the living One among the dead?  He is not here, but He has risen.  Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’  And they remembered His words, and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.”
