1 Now on the morning of the Sabbath, when it began to grow light on the first Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulcher.
2 And behold, a great earthquake occurred. For an Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and as he approached, he rolled back the stone and sat down on it.
3 Now his appearance was like lightning, and his vestment was like snow.
4 Then, out of fear of him, the guards were terrified, and they became like dead men.
5 Then the Angel responded by saying to the women: "Do not be afraid. For I know that you are seeking Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here. For he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where the Lord was placed.
7 And then, go quickly, and tell his disciples that he has risen. And behold, he will precede you to Galilee. There you shall see him. Lo, I have told you beforehand."
8 And they went out of the tomb quickly, with fear and in great joy, running to announce it to his disciples.
9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Hail." But they drew near and took hold of his feet, and they adored him.
10 Then Jesus said to them: "Do not be afraid. Go, announce it to my brothers, so that they may go to Galilee. There they shall see me."
3 Do you not know that those of us who have been baptized in Christ Jesus have been baptized into his death?
4 For through baptism we have been buried with him into death, so that, in the manner that Christ rose from the dead, by the glory of the Father, so may we also walk in the newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together, in the likeness of his death, so shall we also be, in the likeness of his resurrection.
6 For we know this: that our former selves have been crucified together with him, so that the body which is of sin may be destroyed, and moreover, so that we may no longer serve sin.
7 For he who has died has been justified from sin.
8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live together with Christ.
9 For we know that Christ, in rising up from the dead, can no longer die: death no longer has dominion over him.
10 For in as much as he died for sin, he died once. But in as much as he lives, he lives for God.
11 And so, you should consider yourselves to be certainly dead to sin, and to be living for God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
