"on the first day
of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they
had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they
went in, they did not find the body. While
they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood
beside them. The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but
the men said to them, ‘Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not
here, but has risen. Remember
how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be
handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.’
Then they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb, they told all this
to the eleven and to all the rest. Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the
mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles.
But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. But
Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen
cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened." Luke 24:1-12 NRSVA Did it really happen? Bishop Tom Wright says "The crucifixion of Jesus is one of the best attested facts in ancient history." Listen here to a two minute clip from him on Premier Radio, followed up with this one on why the change in his follower's behaviour is hard to explain any other way.
