Read Ezekiel 37:1-14 with Matthew 28:1-15
The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ began his exaltation by the Father. Matthew shows the supernatural witness given to the resurrection with the earthquake and angelic presence announcing the glorious event. The stone was rolled away, not for Christ to come out, but to show he had already risen, and the tomb was empty. Jesus’ resurrection has secured our justification, our surety of redemption and our comfort in life and death.
