It is difficult to project the element of surprise back into the narrative of the resurrection story, but we must do that to recapture the mood of those women who trudged up the pathway to the place where Jesus was entombed. They expected to find Jesus just as they had left Him: dead, lifeless, hopeless. Instead, they found that the stone was already rolled away and that the body was gone. The tomb was empty. So, where did Jesus go? Here are some of the answers given in the New Testament.
I. JESUS IS WITH GOD SPEAKING ON OUR BEHALF.
a. Romans 8:34 b. I John 2:1
II. JESUS IS HERE TODAY LIVING IN OUR HEARTS.
a. The possibility of Christ in us
b. The procedure for Christ in us
c. The potential of Christ in us
III. JESUS IS IN FRONT OF US LEADING THE WAY.
a. Hebrews 12:1-2 b. I Peter 2:21 c. I Corinthians 11:1
IV. JESUS IS IN HEAVEN PREPARING A PLACE FOR US.
a. John 14:2-3 b. Luke 23:43 c. Hebrews 11:16
b. d. Revelation 21:2
Galatians 2:20 Ephesians 3:16-19 Colossians 1:27
