He is not here; He has risen!
This is a really neat way to explain the resurrection to your kids. When I say kids, I mean 24 year-old kids like me, too. You can ask my husband. I loved making these and couldn't wait to open the tomb!
Jesus' resurrection was not wasted on me!
I made these with a stick of butter (melted), cinnamon and sugar (1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon), a tube of crescent rolls and marshmallows.
First, lay out your crescent dough on your cookie sheet. The rolls will represent the linens that Jesus was buried in.
"So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock." Mark 15:46
Next, dip your marshmallows in the melted butter. The white marshmallow represents our sinless Savior.
Then roll the marshmallow in the cinnamon sugar.
Place the marshmallow on the crescent roll. Roll the marshmallow up tightly in the dough. This will signify the tomb that Jesus was buried in.
With the rest of your butter, brush the tops of the rolls and sprinkle on the excess cinnamon and sugar. Bake the rolls at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
Some of my tombs looked like they had already had their stone rolled away but a few came out really pretty.
The tomb is empty!
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb, They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen!"
Does anyone else get chills reading that? My God is not dead. He is surely alive!
