Easter Sunday


Matthew 28:1-10

Matthew 28:1-10

The Resurrection of Jesus

28 After the Sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.” So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers and sisters to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Jeremiah 31:1-6

The Joyful Return of the Exiles

31 At that time, says the Lord, I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.Thus says the Lord:The people who survived the sword    found grace in the wilderness;when Israel sought for rest,    the Lord appeared to him from far away.]I have loved you with an everlasting love;    therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.Again I will build you, and you shall be built,    O virgin Israel!Again you shall adorn yourself with your tambourines    and go forth in the dance of the merrymakers.Again you shall plant vineyards    on the mountains of Samaria;the planters shall plant    and shall enjoy the fruit.For there shall be a day when sentinels will call    in the hill country of Ephraim:“Come, let us go up to Zion,    to the Lord our God.”
