The empty tomb is an enduring symbol of the resurrection, and the ultimate symbol of who Jesus Christ is…and most important, His claim to be God! It’s a completely unique, incomparable, outrageous claim! Yet there it is. The Bible states it clearly and unambiguously.
People generally don’t mind “the message of the cross” today. There isn’t always a huge battle over the crucifixion of Christ. But there is a monumental battle over the resurrection of Christ. It is as fierce today as it has ever been.
