Resurrection Sunday

The Resurrection

Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

~Matthew 28:1-10

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 
John 11:25


  1. The serpents lies are all in vain
    Our precious Jesus lives again
    For sinful hubris and desire
    Send satan to the Lake of Fire

  2. I learned something new this morning: the Jewish Feast of Firstfruits always fell on the Sunday that occurred during the week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread (which began the day after Passover) (Leviticus 23:11). This means that Christ, who is our firstfruits (I Corin 15:20), was raised from the dead on the Feast of Firstfruits. God never wastes a detail! :)
