Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday,  falls on the Sunday after Good Friday when Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.

In Mathew, Mark, Luke and John, describes how Christ Rose on the 3rd day,  Mary Magdalene and Mary went to his tomb where he was buried early in the morning and realised the tomb was empty.

Jesus showed himself to the women and the rest of the disciples that indeed he’s risen. It sounded strange but, good for the disciples because usually when people die they don’t resurrect.
