Why seek ye the living among the dead?

The disciples Peter and John running to the tomb on the morning of the resurrection.
Eugène Burnand

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying. John 20:1-10 (NIV)

He Is Risen...


  1. Maranatha!
    And soon, we'll get close air support!
    "Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war."

  2. The Lord is risen!

    He is risen indeed! A most happy and joyful Easter to all.

  3. He is risen indeed. Happy Resurrection Day!

  4. That painting says it all, worry, hopefulness, all the emotions. "What's this, they say the tomb is empty, just like he said it would be?"

    All so that God can give us freedom and let us live.

    And they say God is petty... No, God is great, because though He created us He also put his faith in us.

    And gave us chocolate!

  5. "And gave us chocolate"

    Gee, Beans, I didn't know God was a Mayan and/or an Aztec. :)


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
