Luke 24:5b  Why seek ye the living among the dead?
Luke 24:6a  He is not here, but is risen
Romans 6:9  Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
Romans 6:10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Alleluia. Amen.
