Elijah (age 10) reminded me that we needed to bury our toy Jesus in the backyard. I didn't realize that this was a tradition that he wanted to keep up with, but I'm all for making memories and continuing traditions and so Jesus was buried in the back yard. But -- He didn't stay buried!
He was buried,
and He was raised from the dead on the third day,
just as the Scriptures said.
1 Corinthians 15:4
