CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible

The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?
Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.
We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.
