So they quickly left the tomb, terrified but also ecstatic, and ran to tell Jesus' disciples (Matthew 28:8 ISV)
It was as if a sudden wind of fortune broke upon the lake, driving waves of countless fishes to our barren boats, lying, listless and unready, in a workless bay, and we too wary to venture a catch, for fear our nets would break and all be lost.
So it was, when the news was carried to us, like a fragrant balm, on the sweet, enraptured breath of voices fair. Our hearts were stirred, though, weighted by despair, we dared not trust, lest faith prove false and hope be quenched, so deepening distress.
If truly raised, the Lord would to the sons of Jonas and of Zebedee appear, who did his trust and confidence enjoy. Yet women from the first supplied his needs and at his cross remained while others fled. Their acts of love fore’er to be remembered and retold.
With yearning hearts, we ran the graveward path, the beloved disciple fast on my hastening heels, till when this son of thunder, speeding past, halted at the tomb and looked inside, I raced on in and saw the wondrous sight. The grave clothes, tightly bound, lay in their place, deflated now and emptied of all flesh. This grave no longer held the dead and sleeping. His body gone, just as the women had said.
