and the whole earth shook.

Matthew 28:1-10

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went
to look at the tomb.

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.

His appearance was like lightning, and
his clothes were white as snow.

The guards were so afraid of him that
they shook and
became like dead men.

The angel said
to the women,
"Do not be afraid,
for I know that you are
looking for Jesus,
who was crucified.

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see
 the place where he lay.

Then go quickly and tell his disciples:
'He has risen from the dead and
is going ahead of you into
There you will see him.'
Now I have told you."

So the women hurried away from the tomb,

                     with joy,

and ran to tell his disciples.

         Jesus met them.
                          "Greetings," he said.

They came to him,
clasped his feet and
worshiped him.

Then Jesus said to them,
"Do not be afraid.
and tell my brothers to
go to Galilee;
there they will see me."
