Christ's Linen Napkin
  
John 20
7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must arise again from the dead.

Christ's Linen Napkin
  
The folded napkin had to do with Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition. When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished.

If the master was done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, clean his beard, wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, I'm done. If the master got up from the table, folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table. The servant knew that the folded napkin meant, I'm not finished yet. The folded napkin meant, I'm coming back!


Christ's Linen Napkin
  
The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

Jesus is Coming Back.
