Jesus (8)

You may know the expression, “It’s just too good to be true!” People often say that when something wonderful has happened, but they just can’t believe that it really happened.
When Jesus’ followers heard that He was risen from the dead, I think they might have said, “It’s just too good to be true!” Jesus had been telling His disciples for a long time that He would die and rise again, but when the women told them about the resurrection, they didn’t believe it. They thought that the news was “nonsense” (verse 11). But soon, the disciples saw Jesus and believed. That must have been a wonderful day of celebration!
It has been almost 2,000 years since Jesus lived on earth. We cannot see Jesus today. We cannot touch the nail prints in His hands. But we do have the Bible and the eyewitness testimony of people who were with Him. We can know that the Bible is true and that Jesus really rose from the dead. Take time to celebrate this wonderful miracle today!
