Then the other disciple, who had arrived first at the tomb, went into the tomb as well. He saw, and he believed. They did not yet know, you see, that the Bible had said he must rise again from the dead.
John, the other disciple follows Peter into the tomb. Then suddenly it dawns on him. It is ridiculous to think someone would go to all the trouble to unwrap Jesus and take his body. There is so much more to it than that.
And then the warm glow of faith starts coursing through his veins. Could it be? Could Jesus be who he said he was??
Then we hear every teacher’s dilemma when it comes to Jesus.
They did not yet know, you see, that the Bible had said he must rise again from the dead.
Right? Jesus only told them 100 times.
But it’s true, you can say things over and over again and give logical and potent reasons why Jesus is the Messiah, why he is the Lord, it takes choices coming from the heart, not just the head, to come to a living faith. The good news of Jesus is so clear, and at the same time, we are immersed in the mystery.
When was an important time in your life Jesus gave you new insight?
