“Their words seemed to [the disciples] like idle tales, and they did not believe them.” Luke 24:11. On the first Easter morning, the women who took spices to anoint the body of Jesus found the tomb empty. When they told this to the disciples they did not believe it. They thought it was too good to be true. This news was good news. Because Christ has risen all He said about forgiveness, power to change, and eternal life is real. Christ is risen and lives today! This news is too good not to be true! The resurrection is a fact of history that demands a response of faith.
