Day Seven and Eight
In the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea is where Jesus’ body was laid for three days. Just before dawn Sunday, the stone had been already rolled away and the tomb was found empty.
He had risen! In one of the greatest historical events in all of human history, Jesus had risen from the dead.
Since Jesus was sinless, death could not hold Him. In fact, the resurrection is perhaps the most prominent parts of the gospel as was proclaimed in Acts 2:24 by Peter, “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”
This is why most Christian churches worship on Sunday. It is because this was the day of the Lord’s resurrection and it signifies this day as the Lord’s Day to many. The fact that the tomb was found empty is truly significant. And the stone was rolled away not so that Jesus could get out but so those who were His followers could get in…to see the empty tomb.
The world would never be the same again. He is risen and since He is raised, so too might we be. The resurrection from the dead will be to eternal life for those who place their trust in Christ. If they don’t, then they will be raised for eternal punishment (Revelation 20, 21). It is our prayer that you will come to Jesustoday to place your trust in Him (2 Corinthians 6:2) because He became sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21) so that the wrath of God, which was already placed on Christ, might not be placed on those who believe in Him.
