Matthew 28:1-7 (New American Standard)

Jesus Is Risen!

1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was  like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guardsshook for fear of him and became like dead men.  5 The angel said to the women, “Do not b eafraid ; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6 “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7 “Go quickly and tell  His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of youinto Galilee,there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” 8 And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran toreport it to His  disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up andtook hold of His  feet and worshiped  Him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid ; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there  they will see Me.” 11 Now while they were on their way, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the  chief priests all that hadhappened. 12 And when they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave  a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 and said, “You are to say, ‘His  disciples came by night and stole Him  away while we were asleep.’

    The first words out of my mother’s mouth each Easter morn were “He has risen” to which we replied “He is risen indeed.”
