Matthew 28:11–15 (ESV)
The Report of the Guard
11 While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. 12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel,
they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers 13 and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 And if this comes to
the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.
Yikes! He is risen… time for the cover-up! The chief priest were informed by the guards and now they are paying off the guards to tell a different story. Well… fake
news is fake news! Couldn’t resist myself… sorry. Let’s not forget that Luke was a physician and he would have known if Jesus was really dead. I have read several papers written by cardiologist that point out that Jesus
was dead. They base it on the fact that when the spear pierced him, water and blood came out. They named the condition for this, but I don’t remember. Anyway… Jesus really did die and he really did rise again.
I pray: O Lord, you are the Messiah and your plan for salvation has been carried out. You have opened the gates of heaven to those who believe. Thank you, Amen.
