Three days earlier, Jesus had died and a few of His devoted followers put His body in a tomb. Then they went home and rested on the Sabbath. After the Sabbath, they went to check on the tomb,

Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb (Matthew 28.1).

What did they expect to see? What would you have expected to see? They expected to see a closed tomb with His body still inside, for another Gospel Account reveals that they wanted to finish preparing His body for burial.

However, they soon learned something that not only changed them forever, but has forever changed the world.
