That is not the same tomb that I ate a few days ago. That one was made of squishy newspaper and chicken wire.
I would never eat a rock. Who do you think I am, anyway?
This is supposed to be the tomb they buried Jesus in? Why would they bury him in a rock?
Yeah, I guess it would be hard to steal him out of a big, rock tomb when a humongous rock covered the entrance.
But who would want to? Why would anyone want to steal a body?
Jesus what? He told people he would be killed and after three days he would rise again?
So the elders, chief priests and scribes wanted to seal Jesus in so his disciples couldn’t steal his body and say he had risen?
But what if Jesus was telling the truth? Wouldn’t He be stuck inside that big rock tomb? What would He do then?
Okay, I’ll listen to the rest of the story.
Jesus died on the cross on a Friday, and on Sunday Mary Magdalene and some of the other women who had followed Him went to His tomb. They found the stone rolled back from the door of the tomb.
So Jesus snuck out right through the front door.
I am listening.
Mary Magdalene ran to tell Peter and John, two of Jesus’ disciples, that they didn’t know where Jesus’ body had been taken. Peter and John ran to the tomb and only found the linen cloths that Jesus had been buried in. So they left and went back to their homes.
Does that mean Jesus had to go and knock on their doors?
I’m listening. I just wanted to know.
When Peter and John left, Mary stayed behind weeping. She looked into the tomb and saw two angels in there. The angels asked her why she was weeping and Mary said, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.
After she said this, Mary turned around and saw Jesus, but she thought He was the gardener. She said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
Mary finally realized this was Jesus and was overjoyed.
Did Jesus look for a place to hide after that so he wouldn’t be killed again?
Yes, I’m listening.
Later, when the disciples were hiding behind locked doors for fear of the Jews, Jesus appeared to them.
He went right through the locked door? Does that mean He could have gotten out of that tomb even if the door wasn’t rolled away?
That would make it easy for Him to hide so he wouldn’t be killed again.
Jesus won’t be killed again. God raised Him from the dead so that He will have everlasting life. And you can have everlasting life too if you declare Jesus as Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead.
I’ve just got one question.
Can you make the next empty tomb out of bread please?
