Secure the tomb…

John 2.19

“The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. 63 “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while He was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, His disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that He has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.
Matthew 27:62-66

Now, how secure would that have to be?
Can finite man secure an infinite, all-powerful God?

66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal
on the stone and posting the
guard.
Matthew 27:66

Jesus did say…

“Jesus answered them,
“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” John 2:19

Here it is one more time, the enemy meaning it for harm but God using it for good!
The sealing of the tomb by the Roman guard will make it impossible for anyone to seal Jesus’ body! Man – once again proving 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 to be true.

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” 20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. 1 Corinthians 1:18-25
