So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.” “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.”

– Matthew 27:64-65 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

People may think that there is a lot of antagonism to the Christian faith today, but the opposition toward Jesus during His time was far greater. Jewish leaders were out to protect their religious power and the Romans asserted their military might. These groups were not about to let this renegade rabbi named Jesus to become a symbol of challenge. But even their best efforts could not stop the power of God. Empires have tried to destroy the gospel for centuries, but no one can keep Jesus body in the grave. His resurrection power lives on and is spreading across the earth!
