He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Read about what was happening on Day Seven of Passion Week. It was a dark day for Jesus’ disciples – they thought He was in the tomb, but they could not imagine what He was actually up to during their darkest moments!!
Emphasize all day that when things look dark in our lives, God is busy at work, taking care of the things that concern us, even though we can’t see it.
Make an empty tomb with just a paper plate cut in half. Color back side of one half of the plate brown. Color the top side of the other black which will be the inside of the tomb. Cut a stone out of the brown side. Staple the two sides together. You can crumple a piece of brown paper for the stone.
