In our Bible studies with internationals, we look for ways to visually teach the basic truths of the Bible. I will never forget the first time we used this object lesson with a group of Chinese young adults. They followed along through the first eleven eggs with interest - but when the last man opened the twelth egg, his eyes lit up and he said, "It's EMPTY!" They knew immediately - Jesus was risen and the tomb was empty. Since then we have used this object lesson many times. Each time it conveys the same excitement.
