He is Risen

Matthew 28:1-8, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-8 and John 20:1-2

Mark 16:1-3 
When the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint the body of Jesus. 

Mark 16:9 tells us that Jesus “appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”

To the list of women present, Luke adds Joanna “and other women that were with them.” He says they brought “the spices which they had prepared.”

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came to the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

John says “while it was yet dark”

The women (among themselves): Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulchre for us?

Matthew 28:2-4 

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 on it. His face was like lightning, and his garment white as snow: And the keepers did shake for fear of him and became as dead men. 

Mark 16:4 And when the women looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. 

John 20:2 

Then Mary Magdalene ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved (John described himself in this way).

Mary Magdalene: They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we don’t know where they have laid him. 

Matthew 28:5-7 

Angel: Fear not: for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples (Mark adds “and Peter”) that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see him: lo, I have told you. 

Luke 24:3-8 

And the women entered the sepulchre and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they were much perplexed thereabout, two men stood by them in shining garments: And they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth. 

Mark says, “they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were frightened.”

The two: Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and rise again the third day. 

And they remembered his words.

Matthew says, “And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.”

Mark adds, “they did not say any thing to any man; for they were afraid.”
