Why didn't they just lock up Jesus? That would have stopped Him from teaching, preaching and gathering followers. It worked with John the Baptist. Why didn't they just lock Him up? The answer is they knew no prison could hold Him. They knew about His miracles of healing and His miracles regarding nature. They knew no prison could hold Him. What they did not know was that no tomb could hold Him—that death could not hold Him. The apostle Peter said it was not possible for death to hold Him (Acts 2:24). Some find it impossible to believe in the resurrection of Jesus. Christians find it impossible not to believe. If the world's one perfect Man could not survive the grave, what hope would there be for us?
