Our Gospel lesson records two events. Each separated by 8 days. Sunday to Sunday–the octave of Easter.
With the resurrection on that early Sunday morn, and what we have in these two events, Sunday is henceforth known as the “first day of the week” (Jn. 20:24-29), and in the book of Revelation Sunday is called, “the Lord’s Day” (Rev. 1:10).
So here we are–some 2000 years later–gathered together on the Lord’s Day… We know what happened on that Sunday morning. Alleluia! Christ is Risen! But what happened that Sunday evening and the next Sunday?

      Pastor Kerns from Quasimodo Geniti (Easter 2) Sunday

If Jesus calls me brother, then I‘m an heir with Him of all His possessions. My sins? Gone. Because Christ gives me His righteousness. My guilty conscience? Done away with. Because my conscience is cleansed by the blood of Christ. My death? Swallowed up in victory. Because Christ is risen from the dead. My hell? Over. Because Christ has stormed and assaulted its gates. The city of the devil is fallen. And I‘m an heir with Christ of heaven and everlasting life.

      Pastor Bruss from Easter Sunday

This Jesus who died for you on the accursed tree is all-powerful over the very death He submitted to! He is stronger than the grave! He is Lord of heaven and earth, and death and hell! And He has blown the lid off of that vault that held him! ‘He is risen! He is not here!’
