An Unknown Story: It Happened That Morning

It was many years ago.  Jesus Christ had died on the cross.  Days later, He had risen from the dead.  It was a glorious day.  Alright!  For those of us who has accepted Him as our Savior, it was a glorious day.  It was not a glorious day for those who seek to deny His existence including the Pharisees and the Sadducees.

            The Pharisees and the Sadducees were meeting that afternoon after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and they were all grumbling amongst themselves.  Hipakiah, one of the leaders of the Pharisees, stood up, and he said, “Gentlemen, as you know, Jesus rose from the dead this morning as He said He would do.  He has made complete idiots out of us again.”

            “This is bad,” said Hanniah the Sadducee.  “This makes us very sad, you see.”

            “We must do something,” said Hipakiah.  “What can we do?”

            The Pharisees and the Sadducees went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth until Henry, the Pharisee, stood up and said, “I got it.”

            “Not you,” said Hipakiah to Henry.  “All you have is stupid ideas.”

            “Not this time,” said Henry.  “This one is foolproof.  Jesus will not see it coming.”

            Hipakiah asked Henry, “What idea do you have?”

            Henry went in front of everyone, and he said, “Bill, son of Bud, owns a time machine.  We can use his time machine to go back in time.  We will make the tomb inescapable.  When the tomb becomes inescapable, Jesus Christ will not be able to rise from the dead.  If He is not able to rise from the dead, everyone who believes and follows Him will be complete morons forever and forever.”

            “Brilliant!” said Hipakiah.  “Jesus cannot make idiots out of us anymore.  We will soon see who the real idiot is.”

            They went to Bill, son of Bud, and they used his time machine.  They went back to the exact time of Jesus’ burial.  When Jesus was put into the tomb, the Pharisees got a crane, and they placed a 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ton stone in front of the tomb.

            “Hah!” said Hipakiah.  “Let’s see Jesus rise from the dead now.”

            It was very early Easter morning.  The Pharisees and the Sadducees were at the tomb ready to celebrate.  As they stood there, there was a massive earthquake.  The stone was rolled away, and Jesus came out of the grave.  They stood there as their jaws hit the ground.

            “That’s impossible,” said Hanniah.

            Jesus went to the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and He said, “With God, all things are possible.”

            The Pharisees and the Sadducees were not happy.

            They went back in time again.  This time, they covered the entrance of the tomb with about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons of explosives.

            “We have gotten Jesus screwed,” said Henry.  “He cannot escape this time.”

            Again, it was very early Easter morning.  The Pharisees and the Sadducees were anxiously waiting for their very foolproof plan to work.  However, they were very disappointed, again.  As Jesus was exiting the tomb, he defused eat one of the explosives.  Again, they were not happy.

            Time after time, the Pharisees and the Sadducees kept going back in time only to see their very clever plans fail.  Finally, they had an idea that was totally guaranteed to work.

            “He will not escape this time,” said Henry.  “He will be twenty miles into the ground, and we will bury the grave with concrete that was forty miles thick.  There is absolutely, positively, ultimately, stupendously, superiorly no way that Jesus will rise from the dead now.  We have gotten Him this time.  He will not make idiots out of us again.”

            Again, it was early Easter morning.  Again, the Pharisees and the Sadducees were waiting in extreme anticipation to watch their fail proof plan succeed.  Again, the grave was opened.  Again, Jesus rose from the grave.  Again, the Pharisees and the Sadducees were in complete shock that their fail proof plan that could not fail had failed again.  Jesus walked up to the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and he said to them, “You know, I have had enough of you guys trying to stop Me from doing what I came to do.  So that you do not waste your time again, I am going to foil your plans.”

            Jesus took out some aluminum foil, and He wrapped each one of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.  As they all stood there, Hipakiah said, “Curses!  Foiled again!”

            No matter how many times they can try, men and women will never be able to explain away the empty tomb.  They will continue to try and say that there was no resurrection, but until they can find the body of Jesus, they only thing that they will succeed in doing is making complete idiots of themselves.  Because of the fact that Jesus is Risen, we have a Savior who lives and not a savior that is still dead and will be dead for a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.
