The finality of Christ’s burial left His disciples in a state of fear and mourning. The silence of the grave, however, would not last for long. On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene discovered an empty tomb that proclaimed Jesus’ decisive victory over sin and gave rise to the fledgling faith of all who saw and believed. The Spirit of God, Alistair Begg explains, has the power to raise Christ from the dead and transform mockers and doubters into bold witnesses for Christ.
1Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
