What about the body

By now, the Roman guards are meeting with Jewish leaders about their incredible experience with the angel who moved the stone – money is being paid, stories created. Remarkably, it seems the Jewish leaders believed the soldiers.

The disciples, in contrast, did not believe the women who reported that the tomb was empty and that angels had spoken to them.

Peter and John run to the tomb…. it is open – the body is gone! 

It is now the Feast of First Fruits – celebrating the miracle of the seed: planted in the earth to die, so that it might grow and yield a bountiful crop.
