4 RESURRECTION ACCOUNT When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spies so that they might anoint Jesus body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they went to the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord ame down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled bak the stone and sat on it. His appearane was like lightning, and his lothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and beame like dead men. Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were on their way to the tomb with the spies they had prepared and they asked eah other, Who will roll the stone away from the entrane of the tomb? Following is a ompiled reading of the events that took plae on the first Easter Sunday from Matthew 28:1-15; Mark 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-49; and John 20:1-23. We thank astor ieter Reid whose work made this possible. But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, whih was very large, had been rolled away from the tomb. When they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. ADULT CHOIR... Anthem for Resurretion The day of resurretion! Earth tell it out abroad. The passover of gladness, the passover of God. From death to life eternal from this world to the sky, Our Christ has brought us over with hymns of vitory. Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright The Lord in rays eternal of resurretion light. And list ning to his aents may hear so alm and plain, His own All hail! and hearing may raise the vitor strain. Now let the heav ns be joyful, let earth her song begin. Let the round world keep triumph and all that is therein. Invisible and visible, their notes let all things blend, For Christ the Lord is risen, our joy that has no end. raise the Lord for he is risen! He is risen today! 4

5 RESURRECTION ACCOUNT While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men dressed in white robes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faes to the ground. The angel said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was ruified. He has risen! He is not here. Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be ruified and on the third day be raised again. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. HYMN... I Know that My Redeemer Lives (CW 152) All: I know that my Redeemer lives; what omfort this sweet sentene gives! He lives, he lives, who one was dead; he lives, my ever-living head! Gentlemen: He lives triumphant from the grave; he lives eternally to save. He lives all glorious in the sky; he lives exalted there on high. RESURRECTION ACCOUNT Then they remembered his words. The angel said to the women, Come and see the plae where he lay. Then go quikly and tell his disiples and eter He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you. Now I have told you. Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, beause they were afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disiples. 5

6 Ladies: All: He lives to bless me with his love; he lives to plead for me above. He lives, my hungry soul to feed; he lives to help in time of need. He lives to grant me rih supply; he lives to guide me with his eye. He lives to omfort me when faint; he lives to hear my soul s omplaint. RESURRECTION ACCOUNT Mary of Magdala ame running to Simon eter and the other disiple, the one Jesus loved, and said, They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don t know where they have put him! So eter and the other disiple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disiple outran eter and reahed the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon eter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, as well as the burial loth that had been around Jesus head. The loth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. Finally the other disiple, who had reahed the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. eter, however, went away, wondering to himself what had happened. They still did not understand from Sripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead. Then the disiples went bak to their homes, but Mary stood outside the tomb rying. Ladies: Gentlemen: He lives to silene all my fears; he lives to wipe away my tears. He lives to alm my troubled heart; he lives all blessings to impart. He lives, my kind, wise, heav nly friend; he lives and loves me to the end. He lives, and while he lives I ll sing; he lives, my rophet, riest, and King. 6

7 RESURRECTION ACCOUNT As Mary wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, Woman why are you rying? She said, They have taken my Lord away, and I don t know where they have put him. At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. He said, Woman, why are you rying? Who is it you are looking for? Thinking he was the gardener, she said, Sir, if you have arried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him. Jesus said to her, Mary. She turned toward him and ried out in Aramai, Rabboni!, whih means teaher. Jesus said, Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. Gentlemen: Ladies: All: He lives and grants me daily breath; he lives, and I shall onquer death. He lives my mansion to prepare; he lives to bring me safely there. He lives, all glory to his name! He lives, my Jesus, still the same. Oh, the sweet joy this sentene gives: I know that my Redeemer lives! RESURRECTION ACCOUNT When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. The other women ran to tell his disiples. Suddenly Jesus met them. Greetings, he said. They ame to him, lasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me. While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the ity and reported to the hief priests everything that had happened. When the hief priests 7

8 had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, You are to say, His disiples ame during the night and stole him away while we were asleep. If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble. So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instruted. While the other women were on their way, Mary Magdalene went to the disiples who were mourning and weeping with the news: I have seen the Lord! HYMN... Morning Breaks Upon the Tomb Christian Worship 159 SERMON Luke 24:4-8 WHY DO YOU LOOK FOR THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD? 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in lothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faes to the ground, but the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be ruified and on the third day be raised again. 8 Then they remembered his words. THE EASTER CREED I believe in God my Father, almighty, who by his powerful Word reated this first day of the week in whih my Savior arose. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, my Lord, who was oneived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary; who suffered under the weight of all my sins on Good Friday and died on the ross to redeem me; who was made alive again by the Spirit of God and showed himself vitoriously to the spirits in hell; who triumphantly showed himself alive on that first Easter, to later asend into heaven and prepare a plae for me; who rules in my heart and Christian life today, and one day will ome to take me to live with him. 8

9 I believe in the Holy Spirit, who has alled me by the Gospel to be a member of the Holy Christian Churh; who omforts me with the assurane of God s forgiveness and will raise me from the dead as Christ rose from the dead on this Easter; so that with angels and arhangels, I might live with my Father, my Savior, my Comforter, forever and ever.
