The death of Jesus and the empty tomb

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

Worthy is the LambHistory’s turning point happened as Jesus died.

Luke 23:46 Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I commit my spirit to you,” and with those words he died.

At this time God turned His back on Jesus! As He placed the sin of the world on His son.  Jesus died for you and for me.  He is the turning point of our lives.

Luke 24:1-3 But very early on Sunday morning they took the ointments to the tomb—2and found that the huge stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside. 3So they went in—but the Lord Jesus’ body was gone.

When Jesus died, even His disciples and friends lost hope. They went to look for His body in the tomb.  Every effort had been made to secure His body.   The tomb had been sealed.  Guards had been placed on duty to guard the tomb.  But by the time the disciples got there He was gone.
