He is risen!

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.

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 keepers trembled and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear ye not: for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
