take the body of Jesus to its resting place. The huge stone over
the tomb is the final sign of the permanence of death. In this final
act of surrender, who would have imagined this tomb would soon be empty
or that Jesus would show himself alive to his disciples, or that they would
recognize him in the breaking of bread? Oh, that our hearts might
burn within us, as we realize how he had to suffer and die so as to enter
into his glory, for us.
