But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise. Luke 24:1-7
Remember how He told you?
Remember when He was walking the familiar, interacting with your world, He got very transparent and told you the horror that would unfold…
… and the victory we’d see over the unraveling and rebellion and grief?
It was all true. He was harmed for our infractions, tortured for our choices, pierced because we kept running away.
