He is Risen
And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
And very early in the morning on the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun.
And they said among themselves, "Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulcher?"
And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away, for it was very large.
And entering into the sepulcher, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were frightened.
And he said unto them, "Be not afraid. Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him.
But go your way. Tell His disciples and Peter that He goeth before you into Galilee. There shall ye see Him, as He said unto you."
And they went out quickly and fled from the sepulcher, for they trembled and were amazed; neither said they any thing to any man, for they were afraid. (Mark 16)
