Gospels and Acts of the Apostles

What happened on the third day after Jesus’ death?

Mary and Mary Magdalene went to the tomb. Suddenly, “the earth reeled and rocked under their feet as God’s angel came down from heaven, came right up to where they were standing. He rolled back the stone and then sat on it.” (The Message, Matthew 28:2) The soldiers guarding the tomb quivered in fear. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 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.’” (Matthew 28:5–6)
