Inspired by . . . a risen Savior

 

When the soldiers came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they didn't break His legs.
However, one of the soldiers stabbed Jesus' side with his spear, and blood and water immediately came out.
The one who saw this is an eyewitness. What he says is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth so that you, too, will believe.
This happened so that the Scripture would come true: "None of His bones will be broken."
Another Scripture passage says, "They will look at the person whom they have stabbed."

John 19:33-37

A garden was located in the place where Jesus was crucified. In that garden was a new tomb in which no one had yet been placed.
Joseph and Nicodemus put Jesus in that tomb, since that day was the Jewish day of preparation and since the tomb was nearby.

John 19:41-42

Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb. They were carrying the spices that they had prepared.
They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb.
When they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were puzzled about this, two men in clothes that were as bright as lightning suddenly stood beside them.
The women were terrified and bowed to the ground. The men asked the women, "Why are you looking among the dead for the living one?
He's not here. He has been brought back to life!
Remember what He told you while He was still in Galilee.
He said, 'The Son of Man must be handed over to sinful people, be crucified, and come back to life on the third day.'"

Luke 24:1-7

A week later Jesus' disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Even though the doors were locked, Jesus stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"
Then Jesus said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and look at My hands. Take your hand, and put it into My side. Stop doubting, and believe."

John 20:26-27

Thomas responded to Jesus, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus said to Thomas, "You believe because you've seen Me.

Blessed are those who haven't seen Me but believe."
John 20:28-29

 

He Is Risen!
