From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 04/02/15:
Easter, as you remember the Resurrection and the price paid and the gift
given through the Atonement, ponder what the scriptures teach of those
sacred events. Your personal witness of their reality will be
strengthened. They must be more than principles you memorize. They must
be woven into the very fiber of your being as a powerful bulwark against
the rising tide of abomination that infects our world.”
Richard G. Scott
Thanks so much, Susan!
From My Friend, Stephen, of AZ - 04/04/15 - "Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?":
Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? I never noticed this....
|The Gospel of
- KJV) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face
of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The
Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly
folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes.
Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!' Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.
Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.
Was that important? Absolutely!
Is it really significant? Yes!
In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.
When the servant set the dinner table for
the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master
Thank you so much, Stephen!

told him he'd have a heart attack a year ago, but unfortunately he lived
