The fire seemed to start as a farmer was attempting to bale some stubble in a field, Delmont Fire Chief Elmer Goehring said. He said the tractor's driver as unaware of the fire until he left the field.

The sting of death had taken ahold of Jesus and swallowed Him whole. Jesus had lost. But then crazy things happened. The earth shook, the sun quit shining, the temple veil tore, rocks split, tombs opened and dead people rose back to life. The Roman guard who watched Jesus die was convinced. He said, "Truly, this man was the Son of God." And the guard was right, of course. Whatever Jesus was before, all He is now is dead.
