I read a blog about the stone sealing the tomb where Jesus had been laid and it got me to thinking: that stone seal is symbolic of how Jesus had opened the door for humankind to eternal life. Before Jesus had died, death was the inevitable conclusion to a mans life following the catastrophic behavior of Adam and Eve. Yes, some souls had been revived at the death of Jesus and there was Lazarus, only to have to die all over again. Where we would reside had Jesus not opened the way to eternal life, I don’t know.
Men had knowingly sealed the door to Jesus tomb in hopes that He would stay dead. Angels had opened the tomb through the power of Jesus taking life back again and dealing death a fateful blow. Jesus, walking out the door that men had sealed, opened the way to life.
