"Jesus was dead what's your excuse?" Guest Post from Mrs Warnock

When reading the story of the resurrection in the gospel of John, my friends and I (all ladies) noticed a small detail which showed yet another way in which Jesus is our ultimate example.  Jesus, having been crucified, spent three days dead in the tomb, was resurrected, and did not think twice about neatly folding his grave clothes before departing the tomb.  He didn’t just step out of them like some men do with their trousers!  Jesus didn’t make any excuses but tidied up after himself.

Now, Adrian mentioned this passage last Sunday in his sermon, but did he notice this fact?  I think that its probably something only a woman would notice!!   Adrian insisted that I write this down as he thought it was so funny.
