News That Jesus Has Risen from Death

24 1Very early Sunday morning, the women came to the tomb (grave) where Jesus'
body was laid. They brought the sweet-smelling spices they had prepared. 2[A heavy
stone had been put in the doorway to close the tomb]. But the women found that the
stone was rolled away. 3They went in, but they did not find the Lord Jesus' body.
4The women did not understand this. While they were wondering about it, two men
(angels) in shining clothes stood beside them. 5The women were very afraid; they
bowed their heads down. The two men said to the women, "Why are you looking for
a living person here? This is a place for dead people! 6Jesus is not here. He has
risen from death! Do you remember what he said in Galilee? 7Jesus said that the
Son of Man* must be given to evil men, be killed on a cross, and rise from death
on the third day." 8Then the women remembered the things that Jesus said. 9The
women left the tomb (grave) and went to the eleven apostles* and the other followers.
The women told them everything that happened at the tomb. 10These women were Mary
Magdalene, Joanna, Mary, the mother of James, and some other women. These women
told the apostles everything that happened. 11But the apostles did not believe what
the women said. It sounded like crazy talk. 12But Peter got up and ran to the tomb
to see if this was true. He looked in, but he saw only the cloth that Jesus' body
had been wrapped in. The cloth was lying there alone. [Jesus was gone]. Peter went
away to be alone, wondering what had happened.

Footnotes: Son of Man A name Jesus used for himself. In Dan. 7:13-14, this is the
name for the Messiah, the one God chose to save his people. apostles The men that
Jesus chose to be his special helpers.
