Why did the Angel role away the stone?

The angel rolled away the stone not to let Jesus out, as he had already risen, but to allow the women and the disciples to see that Jesus had truly risen from the dead, as he had promised.

The Angel and Jesus first appeared to whom? What did they tell the women to do?

The angel and Jesus first appeared to the women who had come to the tomb. They instructed the women to go back to Jerusalem and tell the disciples to go to Galilee, where Jesus would meet them.

What did the Chief priests tell the guards to do? What was the lie?

The chief priests instructed the guards to say that the disciples had stolen the body of Jesus while they were asleep. This was a lie concocted to explain the empty tomb and to deny the resurrection of Jesus.

What did Jesus tell the Disciples in Galilee? How is it encouraging to us today?

Jesus told the disciples in Galilee that all authority in heaven and on earth had been given to him. He instructed them to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey his commands. He promised to be with them always, even to the end of the age. This is encouraging to us today because it reaffirms Jesus’ authority over all things, his presence with us through the Holy Spirit, and his promise to never leave or forsake us. It also emphasizes our mission to make disciples and spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth, with the assurance that Jesus is with us in this endeavor.
