Easter Sunday 2015

Luke 24: 1-9
  1. Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
  2. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
  3. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
  4. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
  5. And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
  6. He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
  7. Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
  8. And they remembered his words,
  9. And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

    Thank You Basil for the reminder that there was Easter before Cadbury crème eggs.

    Sadly, 2,000 years later, His followers, again, cannot speak of our faith in public for fear of retribution.

  2. He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

  3. "On the third day the friends of Christ coming at day-break to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away.
    In varying ways they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night.
    What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn."
    - G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man, Part 2, Ch. 3, The Strangest Story in the World.

    Happy Easter!
