Acts 10:39-40 “We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen.”

The Scene: Three* nails, representing the nails that secured Jesus to the cross. They were also symbols of man’s world of envy, evil, sinfulness.  (See Matthew 27:18)

*3 the Bible number for resurrection and complete.

Jesus died on the cross, His mission on earth  complete. The Holy Spirit’s revelation to this writer concerning the nails: “They were made by man, driven into Jesus’ flesh and cross by man. However, they (man and his world system) could not hold Him.”

He was crucified only because Jesus followed the original plan of Father God. Jesus was obedient to the will of His Father. He died only after He said, “It is finished!” The nails could not hold Him. Jesus was buried and He rose from the grave on the third day so that His followers’ sins could be forgiven and they, too, could be raised from the dead.

Jesus, on Easter morning, was seen by many people so that they and we could be given hope and a promise of eternal life, because of our faith in Him and His sacrificial death and resurrection..
