Ripley's Believe It or Not has become an industry to itself. The museums, TV shows and books feature unusual, even bazaar people and things that you have to see to believe. Hearing about them isn't enough. Well, it seems this was the same situation following the resurrection of Christ. Those who initially heard about it couldn't believe it--not until they saw it for themselves. Mark 16 records several of these occasions. It should not have been a surprise, however, because Jesus foretold His resurrection to His disciples(Mark 8:31;9:31;10:34). It was so unbelievable but yet it happened. How many times have we read God's promises in the Bible yet still don't really trust God? We accept God's word intellectually but it hasn't gripped our heart. Don't be someone who has to see it first to believe it. Take God at His word.
