Tonight if you are a follower of Jesus, all seems dark, all is lost. The future is very bleak, not at all what you had expected. And the past, those miracles, did they really happen? Was he who he said he was? Why would he string you along?
Tonight it just seems hopeless.
I can't begin to imagine the sense of loss they must have felt.
Then again, I can't imagine their absolute joy when they discover that Jesus is alive.
What a weekend. From the depths of dispair to the heights of joy.
