The Biblical Record of JESUS’ death on Cross and Resurrection
It is written, “Jesus when HE had cried again with a loud voice yielded up the ghost. And behold, the veil of The Temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake,and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the
saints which slept arose, and came out of the grave after HIS resurrection, and went into the holy city and appeared unto many. Now when the Centurion and they that were with him,
watching JESUS, saw the earth quake and those things that were done, they feared greatly,saying ‘truly This was The Son of GOD.” . . .When the even[ing] was come there came a rich man of Ar-im-a-thae-a, named Joseph, who also himself was JESUS’ disciple. He went to Pilate, and begged the body of JESUS. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed. And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary sitting over against the sepulchre. Now the next day, that followed the day of the
preparation, the Chief Priests and Pharisees, came together unto Pilate,saying, “Sir,we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, ‘after three days, I will rise again’. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest HIS disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people,’he is risen
from the dead, so the last error shall be worse than the first.” Pilate said unto them,’ye have a watch; go your way; make it as sure as ye can.’ So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch over it. [ Chapter 28 begins]
In the end of the Sabbath,as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for The Angel of THE LORD descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow; and for fear of him, the keepers did shake and became as dead
men. And The Angel answered and said unto the women, ‘fear not ye,for I know that ye seek JESUS, which was crucified. HE is not here; for HE Is risen as HE said. Come, see the place where THE LORD lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that HE is risen from dead, and behold, HE goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see HIM; Lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy;
and did run to bring HIS disciples word. And as they went to tell HIS disciples, behold, JESUS met them saying,” all Hail”. And they came and held HIM by the feet, and worshipped HIM. Then said JESUS unto them,’be not afraid; go tell MY brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see ME.”

From John the apostle’s revelation of JESUS on the isle of Patmos:
” and when I saw HIM [JESUS] I fell at HIS feet as dead; and HE laid HIS right hand upon me saying unto me,’fear not! I AM the first and the last; I AM HE that liveth and was dead; and behold, I AM ALIVE forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” Revelation 1:17-18
