Mark 16:6 and 7

“Don’t be alarmed, ” he said, “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He has risen! He is not here.  See the place where they laid him.  But go, tell his disciples and Peter, “He is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him, just as he told you.'” 

The disciples never could get a grasp on Jesus rising from the dead, even when he explained it.  Now, it has happened.  They have seen Jesus raise others from the dead, but are onfused that He Himself has risen.  This passage once again points out the kindness and compassion of our God, Who cares for every detail of our lives.  He calls them home to meet Him in his resurrected body, back to Galillee, back to familiar surroundings, back where something is normal – boats, nets, fishing.
