Daily Bible Verses:
The Journey of Faith, Hope and a Fresh Start
After Jesus dies on the cross, it is night time. Joseph, a wealthy man and a disciple of Jesus asks Pilate for the body. Pilate releases Jesus’ body to Joseph, who wraps it in clean linen. Joseph places the body in his new tomb and rolls a large stone against the tomb’s door. The next day, the chief priests and Pharisees meet with Pilate. Afraid Jesus will come back to life in 3 days, they ask Pilate to order sealing the tomb to prevent Jesus’ disciples from stealing the body and telling everyone Jesus came back to life. Pilate tells the chief priests and Pharisees to use the Temple guards. They go to seal the tomb securely and post guards to keep out intruders. Early Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary visit the tomb. There is a great earthquake. An angel of the Lord from heaven rolls back the stone from the tomb’s door and sits on the stone. The angel’s face is like lightning and his clothing is white as snow. The guards afraid become like dead men.
“The angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. behold, I have told you.”
Matthew 28: 5-7 NKJV
With great joy, the women run to tell Jesus’ disciples of Jesus’ resurrection. The tomb guards also tell the elders and chief priests what happened. The chief priests and elders bribe the guards to tell the Jewish people that while the guards slept, Jesus’ disciples came at night and stole the body.
Jesus’ eleven disciples go to Galilee and see Jesus, but some doubt it is Jesus, resurrected. Jesus assures them.
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.”
Matthew 28: 18-20 NKJV
