Empty Tomb

Among the arguments or proofs of the Resurrection of Jesus is the empty tomb where He had been buried. Of course, after His Resurrection many people had seen Him since He still stayed on earth for about 40 days (cf. 1 Cor. 15:3-8). Some would make that popular saying: “to see is to believe.” No dead bones can be found because He is truly risen from the dead!

But the story does not end there. The empty tomb tells us something more: the victory of truth and love over untruth and hatred. Jesus only told the truth and lived a life of love. And St. Paul describes love in 1 Cor. 13:4 – “love is humble, patient, forgiving and truthful.” That was the life of Jesus. Example speaks louder than words. Everything is passing, powerful people come and go. But the humble man from Nazareth lives in perpetual memory at the right hand of God, in our hearts, yes, the Son of God, our Savior, King of Kings and Lord of Lords! (cf. Phil. 2:6-11).
