On that first Easter morning, John’s gospel (20:7) tells us that when Peter stooped and when into the tomb, he found the linen
wrappings that Jesus’ body had been wrapped in, thrown to one side. But the napkin, which had been placed over the face of Jesus, was neatly folded, and placed at the head of that stony coffin.
Why should Jesus fold the napkin after his resurrection?
The significance of the folded napkin might be found in Hebrew tradition of the day. When a servant waited on his master at the
dinner table, and the master was done eating, he would rise from the table and toss the napkin to one side. But when the master was not finished, he would fold his napkin to indicate that though he had left the table for the moment, he was coming back.
When Jesus folded his napkin, could it be that he was saying to the world: I may be leaving now, but – I am coming back!?
One day, the Bible teaches us, he WILL!
Wth many peaceful blessings
