No matter what, through the years, many people have refused to believe the miracles of the Calvary. They have developed theories to try and explain away the events that surrounded the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
It seems the one thing these people and their theories have in common is, that they refuse to accept the supernatural and they continue to search for a natural reason for it all. But, there is no natural, coincidental occurrences that surround the resurrection of Jesus Christ, it’s simple, Gods hand was evident through all of it. Gods miracles don’t begin and end with the resurrection itself.
There are several more supernatural events that also happened from the death of Jesus through the days following His resurrection. Over the next few days it will be covered here and we’ll look at what the Bible says happened during those miraculous times.
The Darkness Fell
Just before Jesus died on the Cross, darkness fell upon the land right in the middle of the day. The Bible tells us that, it was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining (Luke 23:44-45). While no one knows for sure if this darkness covered the earth or if it was just localized to Judea, we do know it was a supernatural darkness. This was not a coincidental occurrence. This three hour darkness was caused by God, symbolizing the significance and intense suffering of the death of His Son, Jesus.
Father, I am grateful that the events that took place around the death and resurrection of Christ can’t be explained apart from Your hand at work. Thank You for showing Your power even in the darkness that fell the day of the crucifixion.
“By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.”
1 Corinthians 6:14
