Discuss
9. Were the women (in Matthew 28:1-10) the only ones who saw Jesus after his resurrection?

Conclude
The women went to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus with the spices they had prepared. But the body of Jesus was not in the tomb. The angel explained to them that Jesus had risen from the dead. Jesus is alive!
Jesus is the Son of God. He came to earth to die on the cross to take the punishment for our sins. And on the third day, Jesus became alive again.
Because Jesus died on the cross, our sins can be forgiven. We can be with God and have a relationship with him. We can become his children and will one day be with him in heaven.
