Live Like the Living

1 After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the
other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 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. 3
His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 For fear of him the
guards shook and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be
afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for he
has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7 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.” 8 So they left the tomb
quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them
and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. 10
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there
they will see me.” (Mt. 28:1-10 NRSV)
