• Old Testament professor and author, Walter Kaiser, wrote a brief post explaining why we can properly speak of Jesus being in the tomb for 3 days. Read it here. (HT: Tim Challies)
  • Justin Taylor references 1 Corinthians 5:7–“Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed”, and points us to Todd Bolen’s explanation of why we should watch this graphic video of a passover lamb being slaughtered.
  • Dan Philips references Justin’s post and the video, and dives into the theology of a sacrifice for sin found throughout Scripture. You can read his post, “A holy day — not a pretty day”, here.
  • Last year we posted an article by John Piper on the results of the resurrection. You can read it here.

Blessings to you as you meditate on Christ’s sacrifice for you, and all that is your in Him.
