About the Book


And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

No longer could I say I was lonely. But oh, how I wish I could! Who could have done such a thing to the Creator of the world? Who had so much hatred for Him?

Available for free on all eBook vendor:

As the day slowly drags on, more men approach. Are they here to lend aid or to harm the body of my Creator? Oh, Creator! Give me a way to defend Your Son's body if need be!

The Jewish guards come near and take some wax and put a Roman seal on the stone. Doubly safe. No one could take my Creator’s body without facing whatever penalty the Roman’s gave. I should never have doubted You, Creator and Provider!

Two of the guards stay behind and stand on either side of the rock. As the day creeps by again, every few hours, new guards replace the ones already there.

Christ Arose: A Tomb's Tale by Faith Blum (5 star review)

Christ Arose: A Tomb's Tale

written by Faith Blum

a few pages // published in 2017 // Biblical fiction

My Review

5 Star Rating

A unique, one-of-a-kind RESURRECTION story!

This little story holds powerful truths in it. The structure of the plot is unique, as the tomb of Jesus Christ comes alive to convey cognitive thoughts and emotions regarding the days of Jesus' death and resurrection. No where else will you find such a viewpoint. While reading it myself, I felt that this tale is certainly an inspired one -- something that a creative artist would think up, except this is a painting created with words.

I think this is one of those stories that makes you stop and rethink the Easter story -- the same one you hear every year, all year. It's different and allows the reader to perhaps glimpse something they hadn't seen before about this Biblical and blessed event.

Recommended for any age.
