What happened that first Easter morning is a question of both history and faith. Historians can all agree on the fact that Jesus lived, died, His tomb was empty, and His body nowhere to be found. You see, history can take us so far, but it is faith that takes us that one last step. It is by faith that we choose to believe in what so many saw that day — that Jesus rose from the grave. For the first followers of Jesus, the first Easter was about what they said they saw. For the rest of us, it’s a matter of what we believe they saw. Because of what happened on Easter, there is hope no matter what has happened, is happening, or will happen in this life.
