A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Tomb


A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Tomb

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Tomb

Today is Easter Sunday, and today we reach the climax of our Easter blog series. This is the third of three posts in our Divine Comedy series. We started off with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, we then moved on to A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Execution on Good Friday. Today, our series concludes with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Tomb. With that being said, let’s dive into today’s post.

Easter Sunday: Comedy or Tragedy?

As noted in the post from Good Friday. If you look at how Shakespeare wrote his plays, you may know the traditional story arc of his comedies and tragedies. A tragedy begins in joy but ends in pain, whereas a comedy begins in pain and ends in joy. When we put all of the events of the Easter weekend within their proper context, we see the events move from tragedy to comedy.

The Real Meaning of Easter

The day of Easter Sunday is all about victory! It is the day when Jesus Christ achieved victory over sin and death, rising again and as a result, opening a way for us to have a relationship with Him. Fixing our broken relationship with God.

At the heart of today is an invitation to enter into that relationship with Jesus Christ. Accepting Him as our Lord and Saviour. So the question is simple, will you consider entering into that relationship with Him? When you accept that relationship, all of your sins are forgiven, it is taken as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12), He forgives our wickedness and remembers our sins no more (Hebrews 8:12). The question Easter raises for us is will we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.

The invitation is open, will you accept it if you haven’t already?
