The Resurrection Story (Part 2)

The Guard at the Tomb
 62 The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. 63 “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”
 65 “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.

Matthew 27: 62-66

Is there any other story in the whole world that is more dramatic? I've enjoyed reading your posts leading up to Resurrection morning.

The sheer impossibility of the empty tomb - I love how God accomplished it with His mighty power. think that we have His Holy Spirit within us, working with that same power?? UNBELIEVABLE!

Wishing you and yours a wonder-full Easter!

As secure as they knew how.
Nothing can hold back the power of God.

HE is risen!
