Matthew 28:1-10

After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the 
other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an
angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on
it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the
guards shook and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be 
afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he 
has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and 
tell his disciples, “He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of 
you to Galilee; there you will see him.” This is my message for you.’ So they left the 
tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met 
them and said, ‘Greetings!’ And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and 
worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to 
go to Galilee; there they will see me.’
