This question— “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”—reminds us that Jesus rose from the earthly grave.  God raised Him up and death was conquered!  When we embrace the meaning and importance of this question, we find ourselves longer bound by how many decades of life we have left on earth but living in anticipation of a resurrected life that is eternal!  The women must look for Jesus among the resurrected living, and we too look for Jesus in the resurrection that is to come!  We must live this life as a people who will be raised to life eternal!

"Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but has risen!"

Luke 24:5-6
