There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

– Matthew 28:2-6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Notice how the angel of the Lord bypasses the guards and speaks to women about the resurrection. God chose to reveal His truth to a people group who, in that day, could not even testify in a court of law. God’s love challenges our paradigms in order to free us to be the children of God. As the apostle Paul wrote, there is neither male nor female in Christ. What was scandalous in the 1st Century becomes freeing for all of eternity. The resurrection is an event that includes everybody! Happy Easter!
