The Resurrection of Our Lord

 2016 Easter Weekend

“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad it.” God has indeed raised from the dead the one who was put to death “by hanging him on a tree.” Alleluia! God allows Jesus to appear “to us who were chosen by God as witnesses” in holy baptism and invites us to eat and drink at the table of the risen Christ. Alleluia!

O God, you gave your only Son to suffer death on the cross for our redemption, and by his glorious resurrection you delivered us from the power of death. Make us die every day to sin, that we may live with him forever in the joy of the resurrection, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

 Isaiah 65: 17-25

Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24

1 Corinthians 15:19-26

Luke 24:1-12

 

Easter Sunday – The resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  In the early morning of the first day of the week (Sunday), as several women went to the tomb to anoint Jesus’ body, they found the stone to the cave entrance rolled away. At first, they and other disciples were quite fearful that Christ’s body had been stolen.  But these fears were quickly erased as the risen Jesus made himself known to Mary Magdalene and the others. The physically resurrected Jesus had defeated the 3D’s- Death, Darkness and the Devil! For the next 40 days before his ascension into heaven, the Lord would reveal himself to many, and command the church to witness him and make disciples.
