Three large jumbo cards (7" x 10 1/2") are shown to have printed crosses on them but the center card is in a different color easily depicting it as Christ on the cross between the two thieves.
A helper is asked to come to the platform and hold a large folder with a picture of THE TOMB printed on it. The three cards are placed in the tomb as the crucifixion story is told.
The two thief cards are removed leaving only the Christ card in the tomb. However when the Christ card is removed, it is a card with the words, "HE IS NOT HERE". When the audience thinks that the Christ card is on the reverse side and indicate they would like to see it turned over, the words "HE IS RISEN" appears on the back.
It is very visual and easy to do, packs flat and will last a lifetime.
