Bible Cliff’s Notes
(Or, the Dog Ate My Bible)

Gospel: Luke 24:1-12

Jesus’ tomb is empty. The women who discover he’s gone and then Peter are baffled.

First Reading: Acts 10:34-43

Peter speaks to Cornelius and a group of Gentiles about the resurrection and about God showing no favor to a particular group of people.

Psalm: Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24

The stone rejected by builders is now the foundation stone. Psalmist also rejoices in God’s victory over death.

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:19-26

Since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead came through one too. Death is the last enemy.
