Luke 24:1-12 Jesus has been taken down off the cross and His dead body wrapped and placed in a tomb. The stone has been set in place closing that grave, a Roman guard has been placed to guard the tomb and ensure Jesus body goes nowhere. He, on Sunday morning, on the third day, as the woman come to finish the job and give Jesus a proper Jewish burial, they come to find the stone rolled away and the body of the Lord gone. Two angels bring the message of the risen Jesus. This is a foundational truth for the Christian faith.
