I’m a scientific kind of guy and to tell you the truth
I find the stories of the empty tomb hard to take in
The gospels don’t help much because each of them tells
A very different story, with very contradictory details.
Which should I believe? If any…
Can we really know for certain what happened?
What we do know is that a frightened & demoralised
group of disciples of Jesus of Nazareth
Who had just been brutally executed
experienced something so momentous that they realised
That Jesus was still in their lives and hearts -
That it was now up to them
To carry on the work that Jesus had started
So convinced were they of the essential truth of this experience
That many of them, in their turn,
Were prepared to go to their death rather than deny
their commitment to Jesus as their risen Lord
Help me to experience
The living presence of Jesus and to follow in his footsteps.
