The King Rises From The Dead. An Angel Moves the Stone And Announces, He Is Risen.

Footnotes

  1. Matthew 28:1 That is, Sunday morning near sunrise they went to see the burial-place. Or, late on the Sabbath, in the dawning. That is, late in the day on Saturday, just before the beginning of the new Jewish day at sundown, they went to ‘see’ the grave. After sundown, they went to buy spices (Mk 16:1). Then they returned to the grave Sunday morning to anoint the body (Mk 16:2), where Matthew continues next.
