Jesus is risen

Now after the Sabbath, as it begun to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and set upon it. And his appearance was like lightening, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became as dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here for he has risen, just as he said. Come see the place where he was lying. Go quickly and tell his disciples he has risen from the dead; and behold he is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see him; behold I have told you.”

And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to the disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 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.” (Matthew 28: 1-10)

… for you were slain and purchased for God with your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying in a loud voice,

“Worthy is the lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” (Rev. 5:6b, 11-12)

He is risen:
