From the earliest apostolic period, the reality of the empty tomb-the biblical truth that the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth was found empty by His disciples-has been at the center of the Christian proc...
The importance of the empty tomb (John 20 1-8) is that Jesus did what He told the Diciples He was going to do, rise the 3rd day. It also made truth of all He ever said. Christianity is the only religion that has a living God that watches over you. He also received the New Body that He promised all believer in Him, in which He was the first (remember that Jesus was a man and also God). The Tomb couldn't hold Him for He could walk through solid objects as He did when He appeared to the Diciples in the Upper Room. He was also solid as when Thomas touched His wounds. Jesus the God/man created all things as stated in the first verses in John chapter 1. All the old and new testaments reflect on Jesus and His forefillment of all the things the Prophets said that the Messiah would have to be in order to be the coming Messiah. There is no doubt that people were looking for a Lion instead of a Lamb to save them from their enemies, but more importantly He came as the Lamb of God to save them from sin, which guarantees them Eternal Life. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and if you believe in Him and have a personal relationship with Him (know Him through the Bible and you accept Him as your personal Savior).You will have Eternal Life. There is no other religion that you can have a personal relationship with God than Christianity. Learn who Jesus Christ is and you will know who God is.
The importance of the Empty Tomb is as beautiful as this: He Defeated “Death” HE is Risen, :)
