Sadness and surprise

After Jesus had been arrested in the garden He was taken away and put on trial before Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate said he couldn’t find any fault in Him but still sentenced Him to be crucified. Jesus was crucified on a hill between two thieves, one of the thieves mocked him but the other asked Jesus to remember him when he died, Jesus said “today you will be with me in paradise.”

After Jesus had died, His body was taken and buried in a tomb, which was guarded by soldiers. Mary Magdalene and Mary went to visit the garden the day after the Sabbath but when they got there the stone had been rolled away and the tomb was empty. An angel was there and told them that Jesus had risen from the dead just like He said He would. Mary and Mary went to find the disciples to tell them and John believed straight away.

Later on when all the disciples were together, Jesus appeared in front of them and they knew it was Him because they could see the marks on His hands and feet so they knew He had risen from the dead.
