42 So with the resurrection of the dead: what is sown is mortal, what rises is immortal; 43 sown inglorious, it rises in glory; sown in weakness, it rises in power; 44 sown an animate body, it rises a spiritual body. As there is an animate body, so there is a spiritual body.

Mark 16:1-8

1 And when the sabbath had passed Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought some spices in order to go and anoint him; 2 and very early on the first day of the week they went to the tomb, after sunrise. 3 They said to themselves, "Who will roll away the boulder for us at the opening of the tomb?" (for it was a very large boulder). 4 But when they looked they saw the boulder had been rolled to one side, 5 and on entering the tomb they saw a youth sitting on the right dressed in a white robe. They were bewildered, 6 but he said to them, "Do not be bewildered. You are looking for Jesus of Nazaret, who was crucified? He has risen, he is not here. That is the place where he was laid. 7 Go you and tell his disciples and Peter, 'He precedes you to Galilee; you shall see him there, as he told you.'" 8 And they fled out of the tomb, for they were seized with terror and beside themselves. They said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid of — .

Matthew 28:1-20

1 At the close of the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 But a great earthquake took place; an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and went and rolled away the boulder and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning and his raiment white as snow. 4 For fear of him the sentries shook and became like dead men; 5 but the angel addressed the women, saying, "Have no fear; I know you are looking for the crucified Jesus. 6 He is not here, he has risen, as he told you he would. See, here is the place where he [the Lord] lay. 7 Now be quick and go to his disciples, tell them he has risen from the dead and that 'he precedes you to Galilee; you shall see him there.' That is my message for you." 8 Then they ran quickly from the tomb in fear and great joy, to announce the news to his disciples. 9 And Jesus himself met them, saying, "Hail!" So they went up to him and caught hold of his feet and worshipped him; 10 then Jesus said to them, "Have no fear! Go and tell my brothers to leave for Galilee; they shall see me there." 11 While they were on their way, some of the sentries went into the city and reported all that had taken place to the high priests, 12 who, after meeting and conferring with the elders, gave a considerable sum of money to the soldiers 13 and told them to say that "his disciples came at night and stole him when we were asleep." 14 "If this comes to the ears of the governor," they added, "we will satisfy him and see that you have no trouble about the matter." 15 So the soldiers took the money and followed their instructions; and this story has been disseminated among the Jews down to the present day. 16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the hill where Jesus had arranged to meet them. 17 When they saw him they worshipped him, though some were in doubt. 18 Then Jesus came forward to them and said, "Full authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth; 19 go and make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the holy Spirit, 20 and teach them to obey all the commands I have laid on you. And I will be with you all the time, to the very end of the world."

Luke 24:36-39

36 Just as they were speaking He stood among them [and said to them, "Peace to you!"] 37 They were scared and terrified, imagining it was a ghost they saw; 38 but he said to them, "Why are you upset? Why do doubts invade your mind? 39 Look at my hands and feet. It is I! Feel me and see; a ghost has not flesh and bones as you see I have."

John 20:1-18

1 On the first day of the week Mary of Magdala went early to the tomb, when it was still dark; but as she saw the boulder had been removed from the tomb, 2 she ran off to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, the favourite of Jesus, telling them, "They have taken the master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have put him!" 3 So Peter and the other disciple set out for the tomb; 4 they both started to run, but the other disciple ran ahead, faster than Peter, and got to the tomb first. 5 He glanced in and saw the bandages lying on the ground, but he did not go inside. 6 Then Simon Peter came after him, and went inside the tomb; he noticed not only that the bandages were lying on the ground 7 but that the napkin which had been round his head was folded up by itself, instead of lying beside the other bandages. 8 Upon this the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, went inside too, and when he saw for himself he was convinced. 9 (For as yet they did not understand the Scripture that he must rise from the dead.) 10 Then the disciples returned home; 11 but Mary stood sobbing outside the tomb. As she sobbed, she glanced inside the tomb 12 and noticed two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 "Woman," they said to her, "why are you sobbing?" She said, "Because they have taken away my master, and I do not know where they have put him!" 14 With these words she turned round and noticed Jesus standing — though she did not know it was Jesus. 15 "Woman," said Jesus, "why are you sobbing? Who are you looking for?" Supposing he was the gardener, she said, "Oh, sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you put him, and I will remove him." 16 "Mary!" said Jesus. She started round and said, "Rabboni!" (a Hebrew word meaning 'teacher'). 17 Jesus said, "Cease clinging to me. I have not ascended yet to the Father, but go to my brothers and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and yours, to my God and yours.'" 18 Away went Mary of Magdala to the disciples with the news, "I have seen the Lord!" — telling them what he had said to her.

Romans 5:8

8 But God proves his love for us by this, that Christ died for us when we were still sinners.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a life of hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Luke 24:1-12

1 On the sabbath they rested in obedience to God's command, but on the first day of the week at early dawn they took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 The boulder they found rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went inside they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 They were puzzling over this, when two men flashed on them in dazzling raiment. 5 They were terrified and bent their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look among the dead for him who is alive? 6 He is not here, he has risen. Remember how he told you when he was still in Galilee 7 that the Son of man had to be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and rise on the third day." 8 Then they remembered what he had said, 9 and turning away from the tomb they reported all this to the eleven and all the others. 10 (It was Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James who with the rest of the women told this to the apostles.) 11 But this story of the women seemed in their opinion to be nonsense; they would not believe them. 12 Peter did get up and run to the tomb, but when he looked in he saw nothing except the linen bandages; so he went away home wondering what had happened.
