Luke 24:1–9, 11; John 20:3–10
Tombs, as a general rule, are not fun places to hang out! That is, unless you’re an archaeologist looking for treasures of the past. But most of us aren’t archaeologists; we’re just regular folks who have had some experience with tombs and graves—and none of it very fun or pleasant. Tombs represent finality, loss, and death. You go to tombs and graves to bury loved ones and to mourn—everyone knows that, including those who buried Jesus after His crucifixion. But what they didn’t know then, and maybe some of us don’t know now, is that a tomb can also be a source of unimaginable joy . . . if the tomb is empty.
