Risen

Mark 16:2 says, "And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen."

This is speaking of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome. They didn’t know, of course, when they started out that morning that Jesus was alive. They were bringing spices they had prepared to place into the tomb.  In looking at this verse, I thought of it this way: "…they came to the tomb when the SON had risen."  Three decades before, Zacharius had prophesied, "Because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high shall visit us.." (Luke 1:78)  What a wondrous revelation was about to be disclosed to these three women and to Jesus’ disciples.

 I wonder if the angel that was sitting inside the tomb felt excitement and joy to be telling the good news. When he said, "He is risen; He is not here;" was he filled with praise at the unfolding of God’s plan of redemption? At the birth of Jesus, heavenly hosts shouted, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased." (Luke 2:14)

Jesus is risen—-HE IS RISEN, INDEED!
