empty cross…full tomb…

I wonder what it must have been like for those first disciples during the sabbath, a day after their leader had been tortured to death.  Peter, disconsolate that once again he had failed his master.  Judas…well…I guess he’d already killed himself.  John – coming to terms with a new set of responsibilities as he adopts a new mother…the rest…well, we simply don’t know.

A broken body in a borrowed tomb…

Emptiness.  Disappointment.  To come this far, and yet…

Their expectations destroyed…

And yet – a new faith is just about to be born.

It’s Saturday, but Sunday’s coming…
