Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was split in two from top to bottom; the earth quaked and the rocks were split.
The tombs also were opened and many bodies of the saints who had gone to their rest were raised.
And they came out of the tombs after His resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many.
Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the jail were shaken, and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone's chains came loose.
God's sanctuary in heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant appeared in His sanctuary. There were lightnings, rumblings, thunders, an earthquake, and severe hail.
They were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?"
Looking up, they observed that the stone-- which was very large-- had been rolled away.
When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; they were amazed and alarmed.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
They went in but did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men stood by them in dazzling clothes.
So the women were terrified and bowed down to the ground. "Why are you looking for the living among the dead?" asked the men.
On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark. She saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
She saw two angels in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet, where Jesus' body had been lying.
They said to her, "Woman, why are you crying?" "Because they've taken away my Lord," she told them, "and I don't know where they've put Him."
And most certainly, the mystery of godliness is great: He was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you concerning things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Angels desire to look into these things.
