The Empty Tomb

By Max Lucado

“Come, see where his body was lying.” Matthew 28:6 NLT

image Take a look at the vacated tomb. Did you know the opponents of Jesus never challenged it’s vacancy? No Pharisee or Roman soldier ever led a contingent back to the burial site and declared, “The angel was wrong. The body is here. It was all a rumor . . .”

Helps explain the Jerusalem revival. When the apostles argued for the empty tomb, the people looked to the Pharisees for a rebuttal. But they had none to give.
