John 20: 1-18 v 8 Then the other disciple, who arrived at the tomb first, went inside. He saw and believed.” v 18 Mary from Magdala went to the disciples and told them,” I have seen the Lord”
Its early on Sunday morning. Mary saw the stone had been moved away. Peter , and the other disciple whom Jesus loved, John, ran to the tomb. Peter saw the strips of cloth first, then John went in. He believed the scripture that Jesus had to come back to life. Mary unsure of where the body of Jesus had gone, even when she saw Angels, did not understand until Jesus called her name. Then she simply said “I have seen the Lord”
Jesus was definitely executed. Roman soldiers knew how to do their job. The tomb as seen by three people was empty. Other eyewitnesses over 500 of them saw the risen Jesus, and some ate and drank with Him. These early accounts of people seeing Jesus are more accurate than those written years later. Historical proof of Jesus being alive.
All must come to terms with what that means today. That Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice. That He saved us all from death. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord!
Prayer: Holy Father, thank you. Amen.
