Luke 24:1-9 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel; and as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise.” And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest.
The Four Gospels do not narrate the moment of Christ’s resurrection; the texts only describe the experience of the women who find the tomb empty on the dawning on the third day. It is interesting to observe how these artists represent the scene of the Resurrection in varying degrees of drama, depicting details that are not present in Scripture.
