Him for His Mighty Acts; praise Him according to the greatness of His Majesty receiving proof of the Resurrection. For Mary Magdalene came to the Tomb, found an Angel seated on the stone, and dazzling in shining raiment, who said: Why dost ye seek the Living with the dead? He is not here, but He has Arisen as He said, and goes before you into Galilee.

Peter was grieved because He asked him a

Daniel, the great among Prophets, was thrown of old into the den of lions, and stretched out his hands in the shape of a Cross, he escaped from their ravening without hurt, Blessing Christ God, unto all ages.

Peter, turning around, saw the Disciple whom Jesus Loved following, (who also had leaned on His Breast at the Supper and asked: Lord, who is the one who betrays Thee?)

this saying went out among the Brethren that this Disciple would not die. Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but: If I Will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his Testimony is True. there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.

Fiery Sword is no longer guarding the entrance to Eden. For it was extinguished in paradoxical manner by the Tree of the Cross. The sting of Death and the Victory of Hades have been stricken. And Thou, my Saviour, came and cried out to those in Hades: ENTER AGAIN INTO PARADISE! Golgotha Pilate lifted up three crosses: two for those guilty of larceny, and one for Him Who grants us Life, Whom Hades spied and voice to those below: My Ministers and Governors my heart! Who has affixed it with a nail? A lance of wood abruptly pierced me throught, and I am rent in twain. My inner parts distressingly are pained, my belly aches, the organs of my senses.
