The Other World Breaking In

Only in Matthew's account of the empty tomb (28:1-5) is there a great earthquake and an angel like lightning rolling the stone away from the entrance.  He means to show us that Christ's resurrection is  earth shattering.  It is not just something that happens so that you and I can go to heaven.  It is heaven breaking into our world and gradually transforming the human race and all of creation into something good and true and beautiful.
