And very early on the first day of the week when the sun had risen, they came to the tomb. They were saying to one another: “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was very large. When they entered into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were stunned.

He said to them: “Do not be stunned. You are looking for Jesus the Naz·a·reneʹ who was executed on the stake. He was raised up. He is not here. Look, here is the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galʹi·lee. You will see him there, just as he told you.’” So when they came out, they fled from the tomb, trembling and overwhelmed with emotion. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were in fear.

Mark 16: 2-8

The next day, which was after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together before Pilate, saying: “Sir, we recall what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I am to be raised up.’ Therefore, command that the grave be made secure until the third day, so that his disciples may not come and steal him+ and say to the people, ‘He was raised up from the dead!’ Then this last deception will be worse than the first.”

Pilate said to them: “You may have a guard. Go make it as secure as you know how.” So they went and made the grave secure by sealing the stone and posting a guard.

Matthew 27: 62-66

So when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magʹda·lene, Mary+ the mother of James, and Sa·loʹme bought spices in order to come and apply them to his body.

At that Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released Bar·abʹbas to them; and after having Jesus whipped he handed him over to be executed on the stake.

The soldiers now led him off into the courtyard, that is, into the governor’s residence, and they called the whole body of troops together. And they dressed him in purple and braided a crown of thorns and put it on him; and they began to call out to him: “Greetings,* you King of the Jews!” Also, they were hitting him on the head with a reed and spitting on him, and they got on their knees and bowed down to him. Finally, after they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple and put his outer garments on him. And they led him out to nail him to the stake. Also, they compelled into service a passerby, a certain Simon of Cy·reʹne, coming from the countryside, the father of Alexander and Ruʹfus, to carry his torture stake.

So they brought him to the place called Golʹgo·tha, which means, when translated, “Skull Place.” Here they tried to give him wine drugged with myrrh, but he would not take it. And they nailed him to the stake and distributed his outer garments by casting lots over them to decide who would take what. It was now the third hour, and they nailed him to the stake. And the inscription of the charge against him was written: “The King of the Jews.” Moreover, they put two robbers on stakes alongside him, one on his right and one on his left. And those passing by spoke abusively to him, shaking their head and saying: “Ha! You who would throw down the temple and build it in three days, save yourself by coming down off the torture stake.” In the same way also, the chief priests with the scribes were mocking him among themselves, saying: “Others he saved; himself he cannot save! Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down off the torture stake, so that we may see and believe.” Even those who were on stakes alongside him were reproaching him.

When it became the sixth hour, a darkness fell over all the land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour, Jesus called out with a loud voice: “Eʹli, Eʹli, laʹma sa·bach·thaʹni?” which means, when translated: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of those standing near, on hearing it, began to say: “See! He is calling E·liʹjah.” Then someone ran, soaked a sponge in sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink, saying: “Let him be! Let us see whether E·liʹjah comes to take him down.”  But Jesus let out a loud cry and expired. And the curtain of the sanctuary+ was torn in two from top to bottom. Now when the army officer who was standing by with him in view saw that he had expired under these circumstances, he said: “Certainly this man was God’s Son.”

Mark 15: 32-42

MEMORIAL OF JESUS’ DEATH

Today: After Sundown

_juno 5x7 Quilted Floral 6

On the first day of the Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus, saying: “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?” He said: “Go into the city to So-and-so and say to him, ‘The Teacher says: “My appointed time is near; I will celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your home.”’” So the disciples did as Jesus instructed them and prepared for the Passover.

Matthew 26: 17-29

And as they continued eating, he took a loaf, said a blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “Take it; this means my body.” And taking a cup, he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it. And he said to them: “This means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many.

Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread was two days later. And the chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to seize him by cunning and kill him; for they were saying: “Not at the festival; perhaps there might be an uproar of the people.”

And Judas Is·carʹi·ot, one of the Twelve, went off to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. When they heard it, they were delighted and promised to give him silver money. So he began seeking an opportunity to betray him.

They came again to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came and said to him: “By what authority do you do these things? Or who gave you this authority to do these things?” Jesus said to them: “I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Was the baptism by John from heaven or from men? Answer me.”

So they began to reason among themselves, saying: “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Why, then, did you not believe him?’ But dare we say, ‘From men’?” They were in fear of the crowd, for these all held that John had really been a prophet. So they answered Jesus: “We do not know.” Jesus said to them: “Neither am I telling you by what authority I do these things.”

Caesar’s Things to Caesar

And he sat down with the treasury chests in view and began observing how the crowd was dropping money into the treasury chests, and many rich people were dropping in many coins. Now a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins of very little value. So he called his disciples to him and said to them: “Truly I say to you that this poor widow put in more than all the others who put money into the treasury chests. For they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her want, put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
