The Stone as Sign of Stability…

We may be tempted to think that the stone is rolled away so Jesus can escape, but the stone is rolled away for us, so we may experience the resurrection in this kingdom age. The stone is the great symbol of stability, but when the stone is rolled away the text teaches us that what was once stable, what was once ordinary is no longer. He, whose body was kept for three days in darkness, now comes forth to break the normalcy of redemptive history and bring in a new world of light and brightness.
