A Resurrection Quiz
by Steve Higginbotham
March 28, 2007
The story is told of a Bible class teacher who asked a little boy in her class if he knew what happened after Jesus was crucified.  After a reflective pause, the little boy said, "They buried him in a tomb."  "Right," the teacher said.  "Then what happened?"  The little boy said, "He stayed in the tomb for three days."  "Good," said the teacher.  "Then what happened?"  "He rolled away the stone and rose from the dead."  "Excellent," said the teacher.  But the little boy continued, "...and if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter."
 
You know, there are a lot of people like this little boy.  They know a few facts about the resurrection of Jesus, but the details are not very clear.  See how well you do on the following quiz.  (Answer the questions first before scrolling to the bottom of this email for the answers).
