Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene ◆ and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
Behold, there was a great earthquake,
for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky and came and rolled away the stone from the door and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.
For fear of him, the guards shook, and became like dead men. The angel answered the women, “Don’t be afraid,
for I know that you seek Jesus, who has been crucified.
He is not here, for he has risen, just like he said.
