The Women Head to the Tomb

Sabbath ended at 6pm – 12 hours ago. The women are able to gather what they need to complete the burial rites. Jesus’ disciples are still in hiding, so the women will do it alone.

Jesus has now been in the tomb 3 days (part of Friday, all of Saturday, and part of Sunday).

When the women arrive at the tomb, the Roman guard is gone and the tomb is open. The women enter the tomb, but the body of Jesus is gone!

Instead, they encounter an angel who tells them, “Why are you looking for the living among the dead?  Jesus is not here, he has risen just as he said.”

The women hurry back to tell the disciples – “afraid, yet filled with joy”.

He is Risen – proof that his sacrifice was found acceptable to the Father.
