GROUND ZERO: RESURRECTION SUNDAY MORNING
At least five women have gathered, and then begin their mission on that very first Sunday morning following Christ’s crucifixion and burial.
They have started walking through the Jerusalem of Christ’s ministry, Palm Sunday arrival, Crucifixion, and burial; walking before dawn, it was quiet and strangely silent as they carried the oils and spices they had prepared for properly burying Jesus Christ.
While they are walking through those dark and quiet streets, and out of the city gate, God has sent an angel to open the Tomb for them; and the earthquake and the blinding brightness of the angel knocked the soldiers out and they are paralyzed with fear and then scatter.
They walk into the Garden, around that Tomb where soon Jesus will be seen, and mistaken by Mary Magdalene for a gardener.
They are not far from the crucifixion site where Christ died, earlier that weekend.
The group of women entering by the faint light of early morning, find the Garden, and are shocked at the already-opened tomb, and can see the “exceedingly large” stone is rolled away from the door.
They go into that dark, stone-cut chamber, and see inside that now-empty tomb for the very first time.
They are the very first witnesses of the Resurrection, these five-plus women have seen that Christ is Risen as He promised, and as yet don’t even know that:
THE GREATEST EVENT OF ALL TIME IS COMPLETE
Here before us in Luke 24, we have the inspired record that these women are at that very spot, on that very day of Christ’s Resurrection morning; and there they will get the very first message from God Himself after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So, with our Bibles opened to Luke 24, we can join them and hear this first message from God, on Resurrection morning:
God said through the angels: Remember Christ’s words.
