No better way to illustrate the resurrection…plus a little fun!
A handsome upright 12? tall plaque is shown, bearing a drawing of Jesus. Retelling the story of Easter, a tubular cover is shown empty (think “empty tomb”) and placed over the picture.
Explaining that Jesus body lay in that tomb for three days, you slowly turn the plaque three times…they’re now looking at the back. You lift the cover to “amazingly” show that the word EMPTY has replaced the picture.
They KNOW you just turned it backward and are NOT impressed…and let you know…loudly!
The usual “turn-it-around” gags ensue. You rebuke them, saying “There were people back then too who didn’t believe that tomb was really empty. But it really was, and for a very good reason. Because Jesus was “ALIVE.”
With that, you turn the plaque around and instead of the picture they expect, the word “ALIVE” has replaced it.
A great (and FUN) illustration of the story of Easter. Includes plaque, cover, gimmick, full instructions and routine.
