Morning Readings - (John 20:1-10, Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:1-6; Mark 8:34-38 &9:1) EMPTY TOMB, SELF DENIAL

Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.

First reading from John 20:1-10- THE EMPTY TOMB (Matthew 28:1-8, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12)

(v. 1): THE FIRST DAY OF WEEK - see Genesis 2:2 and my video.

(v. 2): John does not mention the other myrrhbearing women -(Mark 16:1; and Luke 24:10)- Mary Magdalene uses WE indicating the others were there.

(v. 3-8): The responses of both Peter and John - (the other disciple) reveals each one's disposition showing us the different leadership styles. See my video for further discussion.

(v. 7): John's details here concerning the linen cloths is confirming the Resurrection, no way thieves would have taken away Christ's body because they would not have to time to strip the body and fold place each piece carefully much like separately.

(v. 9): THE SCRIPTURE in Psalm 15:10 foretold Christ could not remain dead.

Psalm 15 (16):10: "For You will not abandon my soul to Hades nor allow Your Holy One to see corruption."

Second Reading - Hebrews 4:14-16; and Hebrews 5:1-6

PSALM 27(28) 9, 1

"O Lord, Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance. To You O Lord, I cry on my God

(v. 14): PASSED THROUGH THE HEAVENS is referring to the Ascension of Christ. See also Hebrews 1:3:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had [a]by Himself [b]purged [c]our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

(v. 15): the empathy of Christ is with sinners rests on Himself being tempted in every way we are, Christ was tempted by Satan.

(v. 16): Christ is enthroned at the right hand of the Father, sitting on the throne of grace and not of judgement, and granting mercy and grace to help in time of need.

See my video for discussion on Hebrews 5:1-6

Third Reading- Mark 8:34-38; Mark 9:1

Following Christ takes discipline, obedience, self denial and struggle - meaning bear your cross and follow Him imitating our Lord and all we do.

(v. 1): of Mark 9 is referencing all those who witnessed the Transfiguration and for all those in every generation who will experience the presence of God's kingdom.

In Christ love Jared W Campbell
