“He is not here, for He has risen”

The women who came to the tomb of Jesus on the first day of the week found the stone rolled away from the tomb. When they entered the tomb the body was not there (Luke 24:1-3).

The angel said to the women,

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.  (Matthew 28:6a ESV)

Several tombs of the type in which Jesus was buried have survived the centuries. This one was discovered during road construction a few years ago near Mount Carmel.

Paul says that Jesus was “delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.” (Romans 4:25 ESV).

Last year I wrote about “The empty tomb” here, and “The Tomb of Jesus” here. Use the search box to locate other posts about tomb.
