Easter Sunday

The day when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, as prophesied in the writings of the Bible. Mary of Magdala and Mary, mother of James and Salome, went to the sepulchre two days later. When reaching the place where Jesus had been laid to rest on Good Friday they found that His body was not to be seen. Only the linen cloths that He had been wrapped in were found (later in history referred to and disputed as the linen named the Turin Shroud). Whilst grieving at the tomb an angel appeared to them. Some teach that it was Jesus himself in disguise and they were told to spread the word to the disciples that Jesus had risen from the dead in accordance with the prophecies (Ascension) and would meet them in Galilee.
