He is Risen

Luke 24:1-12  But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  (2)  And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  (3)  but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  (4)  While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.  (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?  (6)  He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,  (7)  that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”  (8)  And they remembered his words,  (9)  and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.  (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,  (11)  but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.  (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 24:30-35  When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them.  (31)  And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight.  (32)  They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?”  (33)  And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,  (34)  saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!”  (35)  Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread.
