When a loved one dies and is buried in a cemetery, a grave marker or tombstone marks their final resting place. If you revisit this “tomb,” the grave marker will remind you that their remains are still there. This is what you’d expect. But when Jesus died, He rose from the dead three days later. When those who knew Him visited His tomb, it was empty. They were met by an angel, who said to them, “Why are you seeking the living in a tomb?” Listen as Pastor Bauer talks about the resurrection of Jesus.
