And why roll away the stone?


A stone placed in front of a grave, so the dead could not escape.


A stone guarded by soldiers, to insure the dead did not leave.


Why roll away the stone?


He could have just as easily stepped out of the backside of the mountain.


He could have simply willed himself to be in a different place?


Why roll away the stone?


He had no need of doors.


He could appear and disappeared through walls – walk straight through them!


Why roll away the Stone?


So we could see inside.  He invites us to look, to stare, and to behold the work that has been completed.


The stone was rolled away to let see truth so  that death will not grip us with fear.


The stone was rolled away so woman who first bit into sin could spit out the words, “He is Alive!”


The stone was rolled away because nothing can separate Him from the ones He loves.


“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law;

 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:55-57 NASB)
