Between Good Friday & Easter: Where was Jesus?

Most of us know that yes­ter­day — Good Fri­day — was a day to remem­ber the cru­ci­fix­ion & death of the man Christ Jesus. Most of us know that tomor­row — East­er — is a day to remem­ber the res­ur­rec­tion in tri­umph of the con­quer­ing Sav­ior Jesus Christ.

But how many of you know what Jesus was up to between death & res­ur­rec­tion? If you answer “He was in the grave” and noth­ing more, go back to your Bible and start again. You’re miss­ing a lot. The sto­ry of Jesus from death to res­ur­rec­tion is an inter­est­ing one — and there’s prob­a­bly more to it than you’d think.

So in the spir­it of the sea­son, I invite you to check out “Jesus’ Activ­i­ties from Death to Ris­ing,” a chap­ter from the book Fas­ci­nat­ing Truths by James W. Knox.

I’m not say­ing that the chap­ter is 100% cor­rect; I am hop­ing, how­ev­er, that it gets your men­tal wheels a‑turning & think­ing about the activ­i­ties of our Lord, even when most peo­ple think He was dead and buried.
