Matthew 28:8-15

The women in Matthew’s resurrection narrative respond to the empty tomb and the angel’s explanation with mixed emotions. They encounter Jesus on the way to tell the disciples, and their joy far surpasses their fear. Aware of the resurrection stories, Jesus’ adversaries had posted guards at the tomb. Though nothing is said about what they might have seen or heard, the chief priests bribe the guards to say that Jesus’ body had been stolen.

You are my hope, O Lord. I hope to feel your presence throughout the day. I hope to encounter you in everyone I meet. I hope to be with you in heaven one day.
