Resurrection Reports


The Conclusion – and beginning – of Holy Week.


During the Festival of Sukkot – in Autumn – there is an eight day celebration. Sukkot goes for one week and then there is an extra day that is set apart. It’s a 7+1 celebration. There is something significant about eight days in Scripture. Now, this isn’t something that we need to get weird about – as we have a tendency to do. It just shows us God is up to something … (For an introduction to Sukkot and the eight days, here is one website you can check out; and I’m sure there are many – and I am not promoting them, I’m just saying they talk about it).

I only bring this up for two quick reasons. One, we see Jesus do this during holy week. He began on Palm Sunday and proceeds for a week through the Sabbath on Saturday. And then, something very significant happens that 7+1 – that eighth – day!

Second, I am intrigued by so many of you all and the work you put into your blog. One of the things that I find creative is the six word stories. I want to try and tackle this, however, in lieu of the special eight days, I wanted to record just a few of the people that witnessed this event in eight word stories. Oh boy!

I moved the stone, sat on top; gazed!

Roman Guards
We guarded, angel rolled the stone – we ran!

Religious Leaders
       He did what?! Here’s more money soldiers. Lie!

       Sun rises. To tomb – spices. Gardener? Son rises!

I run faster. Peter enters. Heart perplexed; stirred!

I’m slower, but enter tomb first. He lives!

Two Walkers
He walked, hearts burned. Fed us, eyes opened!

I don’t believe – must feel him … … Lord Jesus!

The Eleven
Doors locked; scared. How did you get here?!
Whose cooking breakfast on shore? That’s our Lord!

I will stop them all! … … “Paul!” … My Lord!

       We all give witness – we have seen him!
