What? Can it be? How is it possible? He was dead. We watched Him die. He was gently removed from the cross to which He was viciously nailed. He was respectfully enclosed in Joseph/s tomb. Enveloped in the darkness.
But now the stone that sealed the crypt has been rolled aside. Who could have done that? There were guards there. An angel is telling us “He’s not here.” Well, we can see that. But what does it mean?
“He is risen,” the angel said. But we don’t understand. Did He just disappear? The wrappings were simply left behind. But what kind of magic is that?
It’s so confusing? Beyond comprehension. And now there are rumors around town that we have stolen the corpse. How ridiculous! Who has enough nerve or strength to pull that off in front of Roman militants?
What do we do now?
