The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Matt 28: 1-10, Mk 16: 1-8, Lk 24: 1-12)
To resurrect means to bring back to life, or to raise from the dead after being declared dead: This coming back to life happened to Jesus as he had predicted on three different occasions before his death.
On the third day after the burial of Jesus, which is the first day of the week after the Sabbath. The women disciples. Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome went to the tomb with some spices to anoint the body of Jesus and preserve it from decay. On approach to the tomb, they saw that the stone covering the tomb had been rolled away, and an angel of the Lord whose countenance was like lightning sat on it.
The women were afraid, but, the angel encouraged them not to be” The angel answered and said to the women “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified, He is not here. He is risen as He said, come see the place where they laid him. But go tell the disciples and Peter that he is going before them to Galilee, there you will meet him, as he told you”.
Therefore, the women left with joy and ran to bring His disciples word. When Peter and John heard that Jesus had risen from the dead, they ran to the tomb to see for themselves, behold, there was no sign of Jesus in the tomb except the linen shroud that was used to wrap the body of Jesus. The disciples saw by themselves that Jesus had risen. Jesus was alive again.
