In a grave in Hanover, Germany, lies a woman who was an atheist. She did not believe in God or the resurrection. She had a grave made of granite and marble. She made sure it was sealed and surrounded by iron bars and had the following phrase engraved on it:

“This tomb should never be opened”

The lady died and was buried. She expected that, even if the resurrection occurred, no power could open her grave and take out her body.

As rain fell on the grave, a plant seed grew between the rocks. It became a huge tree with its roots deep into the grave.

That is what happened with Caiaphas and the religious leaders. They thought that the seal of Pilate would make the grave of the Lord Jesus closed forever. They did not realize that inside that grave was the Giver of resurrection and the Conqueror of darkness.
