[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Luk 24:1 Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared.
Luk 24:2 They found the stone rolled away from the entrance to the tomb,
Luk 24:3 so they went in; but they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
Luk 24:4 They stood there puzzled about this, when suddenly two men in bright shining clothes stood by them.
Luk 24:5 Full of fear, the women bowed down to the ground, as the men said to them, "Why are you looking among the dead for one who is alive?
Luk 24:6 He is not here; he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he was in Galilee:
Luk 24:7 'The Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, be crucified, and three days later rise to life.' "
Luk 24:8 Then the women remembered his words,
Luk 24:9 returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven disciples and all the rest.
Luk 24:10 The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James; they and the other women with them told these things to the apostles.
Luk 24:11 But the apostles thought that what the women said was nonsense, and they did not believe them.
Luk 24:12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; he bent down and saw the grave cloths but nothing else. Then he went back home amazed at what had happened.
