Matthew 28:1-10

2008-03-22 — Some of you will, no doubt, point out how ridiculous this image is. After all, how would Jesus see his watch in the tomb? Obviously, he had one of those radioactive luminous dials. This would also explain the making of the Shroud of Turin. Remember, you read it here first.

BIBLE PASSAGE — After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.” So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” — Resurrection of Our Lord

    I always knew there had to be some kind of conspiracy working behind the scene with Jesus’ resurrection. However, I’m flabbergasted that it was simply a Rolex watch! And here I thought it was Jesus himself working in concert with the other two persons of the Trinity. By the way, is this a preview of a new course being considered at Valpo? If so, you might think about naming it “The Twilight Zone and the Bible”.
