Risen, As He Said -- Easter 2019 (Matthew 28:1-10)Tim Douglass, April 21, 2019
Part of the Other series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Easter is a time for rejoicing! Whatever else we experience or think about on this day the thing that should be first in our minds is joy over the knowledge that Jesus is alive. For centuries Christians have used the traditional Easter exchange of “He is risen!”, “He is risen indeed!”. it is an expression of both the joy in knowing Jesus is alive and the significance of that event. It is in the resurrection that we have reason for the hope we have. Paul was very much aware of how important it was to remember not just the death of Jesus, but also His resurrection.

1In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. 8And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. 9And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. 10Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. (KJV)
