Scene 1: Jesus’ Resurrection
Black screen. White text: For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. Ephesians 6:12
Takes place in a tomb and the road outside the tomb. Scene starts in blackness. Slowly, two lights start to show on either side of the screen. As the luminosity gradually increases, we see they are two angels. As they brighten, we see the white robe on the dead form of Jesus. Once the angels are fully lit, we see Jesus still lying on the stone of the small tomb. The glow effect from the angels looks similar to large candles. The angels look at Jesus. Suddenly, Jesus awakes from the dead. He sits up and looks at the angels, who are smiling. He stands up and folds the burial robe and lays it on the stone where He was lying. His wounds from His death are still there but only as scars. The angels move toward the giant rock blocking the entrance to the tomb preparing to roll it out-of-the-way, but Jesus holds up His hand to stop the angels. They bow to Him and hover back away from the rock. Jesus quickly stretches and flexes His big muscles a bit, then squares off at the rock. He steps into a strong forward walking stance and throws a mighty reverse punch, hitting the rock in its center. The rock instantly shatters and explodes outward and sunlight floods into the tomb.
