The graveclothes of Jesus, the Father ratified the sacrifice of Jesus

Q75: 82. . . "Why Weepest Thou?"

Show the Desire of Ages is inspired..

(1) The graveclothes show order..

Yet even here was testimony that He had risen. The graveclothes were notthrown heedlessly aside, but carefully folded, each in a place by itself. John "saw, and believed."

It was Christ Himself who had placed those graveclothes with such care. When the mighty angel camedown to the tomb, he was joined by another, who with his company had been keeping guard over theLord's body. As the angel from heaven rolled away the stone, the other entered the tomb, and unboundthe wrappings from the body of Jesus. But it was the Saviour's hand that folded each, and laid it in itsplace. In His sight who guides alike the star and the atom, there is nothing unimportant. Order andperfection are seen in all His work.

The folded graveclothes show Jesus was not finished..(a Jewish custom at dining)

(2) The covenant the Father ratified..

Jesus refused to receive the homage of His people until He had the assurance that His sacrifice wasaccepted by the Father. He ascended to the heavenly courts, and from God Himself heard the assurancethat His atonement for the sins of men had been ample, that through His blood all might gain eternallife. The Father ratified the covenant, made with Christ, that He would receive repentant and obedientmen, and would love them even as He loves His Son. Christ was to complete His work, and fulfill Hispledge to "make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir." Isa.13:12.

Salvation has been a community system of loving Beings since man ever went missing and broke the "breath of life" that was a relationship connection of power to GOD.
