Such a strange mix of emotions when the women left the tomb- fear and great joy. If we had a chance to talk to them, I wonder what they would say about it.
Until this round of Matthew I had wondered how it was the disciples knew where to meet Jesus after his resurrection. This time I noticed in Chapter 26 that he told them that, but the angel reinforced the message to the women. They met him on a mountain that he had designated–something else I’d never noticed before.
I wonder what the guards felt after realizing Jesus had risen from the dead. I’m sure they feared for their lives and were happy to accept the bribe, for falling asleep at one’s post meant certain death. Also, I find it so comforting to know that Jesus said He would be with us always, even to the end of this age. No matter what tragedies I have lived through in my life, my first instinct was to reach out to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I could never have lived through those difficult times without them. I am finding the trinity to be much more understandable.
This is my first post, and I am quite frightened to comment with you who seem to have much more Biblical insight.
Sandy, no need to be apprehensive.
Ok, Randy, I’ll try not to be so apprehensive. I enjoy reading other people’s posts, especially yours! Between our Wednesday study, The Shack, and your sermons, the word of God is becoming much more personal for me.
