Today’s Verse: Luke 24:11 “But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.” NASB
Have you ever had anyone tell you something that was so far fetched or unbelievable that you simply refused to believe? Can you imagine the situation as the disciples were hiding out trying to figure out what to do next after Jesus was killed? Then, right in the middle of that, people come in and tell you that He’s not really dead? You can see where they might have some trouble believing that one. It would have appeared to them just as it still does too many today as “nonsense”. But this is not bad news, is it? It is indeed THE Good News! This is better than opening your front door and being greeted by Publisher’s Clearing House with a check for you. He has risen. He promised that we will too.
