It is interesting how a hole in a hill could change the course of history. Jesus the son of God was laid in a borrowed tomb, a hole in the side of a hill. Joseph of Arimathea rolled a stone in front of the opening and left. Then the most amazing thing ever took place....

What was Saturday like for Jesus’ followers? It was the sabbath. There was nothing they could do. Imagine for a moment that you are one of the twelve. You have walked away from a business, maybe it was a family business. Maybe you have left a good job with a good incom...
