This set of verses speaks of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. None of the disciples knew what to expect when they came to the grave that day and I am sure what did happen was not what they did expect. For instance Mary Magdalene had no idea what was happening. She expected a body but she got the first knowledge that Jesus rose from the dead. This chapter has a lot of wonderful things about the resurrection.
It is okay for us to symbolically inspect the empty tomb but be careful that you don’t linger at the tomb itself. He is risen and ascended into Heaven and He has things that we can do.
What do you think I can do after 65 years? Of course it is not for salvation but because of salvation. For it would not mean working my own way, but Christ’s way which is better.
