The Resurrection (Short Sketch)
Very early on Sunday morning, before dawn had broken, the ground in the garden shook and the tomb trembled violently. The soldiers guarding the tomb were terrified.

Guard 1: What was that?
Guard 2: It felt like… like an earthquake.
Guard 1: The tomb! Look, it’s half open, the seal’s broken! How did that happen?

As they watched an angel appeared before them, took hold of the stone covering the tomb and rolled it back.

Guard 1: How did he do that?
Guard 2: I… I… I… don’t know. Who he is?
Guard 1: I don’t know, and I don’t want to find out.

The angel turned and stared at them, and his blazing vision petrified the soldiers. They stumbled and fell back into the undergrowth. As they did other footsteps could be heard approaching the tomb through the half-light.
