A man named Joseph from Arimathea went to Pilate and asked for the body of
Jesus. Joseph, a rich man, was a disciple of Jesus. He took the body of Jesus
down from the cross. He wrapped it in a linen cloth and put it in his own new
tomb, or burying place. Pilate, the ruler, put guards at the tomb because some
men were afraid Jesus' disciples would steal his body from the grave and then
say that he had been raised from the dead. Early Sunday morning some women
went to the tomb. They brought some spices that they had prepared to put on
the body of Jesus. There was a great earthquake, and an angel came and rolled
back the stone from in front of the tomb. Then the angel sat on the big stone.
The angel said to the women, "Don't be afraid, Jesus is not here. He has
risen, as he said he would. Come and see where he lay." The angel told them to
tell this to the disciples. As they were leaving, Jesus met them. He said,
"Tell my brothers to go to Galilee and there they will see me." They did see
him and he ate with them. Two men were going to the village of Emmaus. Jesus
started walking along with them and talking to them. Later when they were
ready to eat, Jesus gave thanks and broke the bread. Instantly they recognized
him. They went to find the Eleven to tell them what had happened. How happy
they were! Jesus was alive again!
