Now well along on the sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first of the sabbaths, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake, for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow;
and for fear of him the guards shook and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified.
He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there ye shall see him; behold, I have told you.
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy and ran to bring his disciples word.
