Looking at the stone bed where they lay Jesus’ body, I feel like the Kingdom of God is so very close, through the same stone. Stone that becomes paper thin. That if I lay there, I too would be gone to God in an instant. I know it’s a silly feeling that the Kingdom of God is so close, just there. For the faithful, the Kingdom is close everywhere. God is just a prayer away, and actually closer.
I’m sure the bars are there at the tomb because everyone, myself included, would want to lie where Jesus lay, and pray our allegiance.
