He is Risen (and that’s no joke)

Even opponents of Jesus admit that the tomb where his body was placed after the crucifixion was empty when they inspected it. Even the angel that resurrection Sunday morning invited the women to “come and see the place where he lay” (Mt. 28:6). Past tense because he wasn’t there anymore! In fact, let’s remember this morning that the tomb wasn’t completely empty was it. No the grave clothes were left behind! The headpiece that wrapped his head was folded and left by itself! Who would leave the grave clothes behind? If you wanted to steal his body and spread a lie that he rose from he dead, why would you take the time to unwrap the body and fold the grave wrappings? That’s ridiculous!
