Word of the Week

A Dramatic Empty Tomb Retelling

Based on Luke 24:1-12.
Let us prepare to hear the story. 
We enter the story on a gloomy Friday evening. Jesus has been placed in a borrowed tomb. The disciples are aimless. Deflated. How could this happen? They had entered the city with a king and now they are preparing to bury a criminal. Some of the women are preparing oils and spices to anoint the body, according to tradition. But tomorrow is the Sabbath and they will have to wait until the first day of the week to visit the tomb. The best they could do was wrap Jesus in linen and lay him to rest behind the safety of a large rock. Time stretches out before them. Empty and meaningless. What will they do now?
