They were saying, "The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!" (Luke 24:34 NRSV)
There was a new report that archaeologists in the Holy Land had excavated the tomb of Caiaphas, the high priest. It was Caiaphas, you will remember, who presided over the plot to have Jesus arrested, convicted and crucified. Do you know what they discovered when they opened Caiaphas' tomb? They found Caiaphas. They found the decayed body and bones of the man who led those who instigated Jesus' death.

I could not help but be struck by the fact that the archaeologists found the high priest's decayed body in his tomb, but nobody has ever found the body of Jesus. Why? Because he is not dead. He is alive with our heavenly Father.

God of life, thank you for the hope and salvation I have in Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen.
