Art meditation 6 for passion week


Resurrection and Ascension Matthew 28; Luke 24; John 20

“Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. Matt. 28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. Matt. 28:3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. Matt. 28:4 And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. Matt. 28:5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. Matt. 28:6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Matt. 28:7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” Matt. 28:8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Matt. 28:9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Matt. 28:10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

“But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. Luke 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, Luke 24:3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. Luke 24:4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. Luke 24:5 And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? Luke 24:6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, Luke 24:7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” Luke 24:8 And they remembered his words, Luke 24:9 and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. Luke 24:10 Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, Luke 24:11 but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. Luke 24:12 But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.” (Luke 24:1–12 ESV)

“Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. John 20:2 So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” John 20:3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. John 20:4 Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. John 20:5 And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. John 20:6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, John 20:7 and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. John 20:8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; John 20:9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. John 20:10 Then the disciples went back to their homes. John 20:11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. John 20:12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. John 20:13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” John 20:14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. John 20:15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” John 20:16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic,“Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). John 20:17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” John 20:18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.” (John 20:1–18 ESV)
