Luke 24 (Amplified Bible)" 1BUT ON the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready. 2And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb,
3But when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4And while they were perplexed and wondering what to do about this, behold, two men in dazzling raiment suddenly stood beside them.
5And as [the women] were frightened and were bowing their faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among [those who are] dead?
6He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee
7That the Son of Man must be given over into the hands of sinful men (men whose way or nature is to act in opposition to God) and be crucified and on the third day rise [from death].
8And they remembered His words.
9And having returned from the tomb, they reported all these things [taken together] to the eleven apostles and to all the rest.
10Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who reported these things to the apostles.
11But these reports seemed to the men an idle tale (madness, feigned things, nonsense), and they did not believe the women.
12But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; and stooping down and looking in, he saw the linen cloths alone by themselves, and he went away, wondering about and marveling at what had happened."
Matthew 28:2 (Amplified Bible)"2And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled the boulder back and sat upon it."
