Easter Sunday – Church Back Home – March 27, 2016

The Gospel reading is a story that we’re familiar with, but have we really looked at what the story is telling us? Mary Magdalene came to the tomb before dawn, and found the stone rolled away. Did she cheer because Jesus had risen as he said he would? No, she worried that someone had stolen his body. Next, she ran to some disciples who were on their own way to the tomb.

One disciple looked into the tomb and saw the burial clothes without the body. Another walked into the tomb, found the shroud laid in one place, and the napkin which had covered his head neatly placed somewhere else in the tomb. And they went home.

A great gift has been presented to them, and the ones closest to Jesus did not recognize it!
