“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.”
all sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God.
the wages of sin is death.
“God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, CHRIST DIED FOR US!”
He [God] made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
1 Peter 2:23-24
And while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself.
6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7 as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen.
