TEACHING ABOUT THE EMPTY TOMB
By Sharon Chatwell
Jesus is Alive! Hallelujah!
Teaching others about Easter always seems to carry with it an extra responsibility. As Sunday School teachers, we may feel a special burden to try and “Get it Right” when we teach the Easter Story. The reasons for this are obvious; after all… This is important stuff!
Over the years I’ve gained a few insights that have helped me when teaching the Easter Story. So, I thought I would share them with you. I hope you will find them helpful.
Once I tried to imagine what a disciple would say, if he were able to come and speak to us today. I wondered if he might talk about the unity of believers or about the importance of loving one another and living at peace with those around us. Then suddenly it occurred to me that if one of the disciples was able to come and speak to us today, he would simply say, “I saw Jesus Christ with my very own eyes after He was risen from the dead!” Who could stand before such testimony?!
This is, in fact, the message of Easter. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was crucified, died and was buried, and then He was raised from the dead and is alive forever.
You and I did not see these things happen for ourselves, but we rely on the Word of God, written down by the disciples and preserved for us all these years by the Holy Spirit. The disciple John wrote:
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 1 John 1:1
And on the day of Pentecost, the disciple Peter said:
“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.” Acts 2:22-24
This message of Easter is as true and as piercing today as it was 2000 years ago. And it is this message that we continue teach in our classrooms, in our churches, and in our very lives.
God bless you this Easter as you Teach about the Empty Tomb!
Jesus is Alive! Hallelujah!
