MATTHEW REPORTED that early on Easter morning, “There was a great earthquake” (28:2). And nothing in this world has ever been the same. The Resurrection shifted the center of gravity in our lives so that everything we think about our world and our lives has changed. The empty tomb is God’s confirmation that the way, truth, and life revealed in Jesus Christ is the way the whole creation will be saved.
