When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished.”
And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Very early on Sunday morning, just at sunrise,
Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb.
On the way they were asking each other,
“Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?”
But as they arrived, they looked up and saw that the stone,
which was very large, had already been rolled aside.
When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man
clothed in a white robe sitting on the right side.
The women were shocked, but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed.
You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.
He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!
Look, this is where they laid his body.
Our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die;
our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.
Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled:
“Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
! Corinthians 15:54-57
Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands
and millions of angels around the throne.
And they sang in a mighty chorus:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered—
to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and blessing.”
And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang:
“Blessing and honor and glory and power
belong to the one sitting on the throne
and to the Lamb forever and ever.”
