On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared1 and went to the tomb.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.2
While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning3 stood beside them.
In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:4
'The Son of Man5 must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.' "6
