The Collect:

Yahuah our Elohim, through your only-begotten Son Yahusha Meschiach overcame death and opened the gate of everlasting life; We beseech You, Adonai by your special grace to place in our minds good desires, that by your continual help we may bring the same into fruition, through Yahusha Maschiach, our Adonai, who lives and reigns with you Abba Yahuah and the Ruach’ Qodesh forever one Elohim, world without end. Amein.

The Old Testament:
Jeremiah 31:1-6 (NOG)

“At that time,” declares Yahweh, “I will be the Elohim of all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.”
This is what Yahweh says: The people who survived the wars have found favor in the desert. Israel went to find its rest.
Yahweh appeared to me in a faraway place and said, “I love you with an everlasting love. So I will continue to show you my kindness.
Once again I will build you up, and you will be rebuilt, my dear people Israel. Once again you will take your tambourines, and you will go dancing with happy people.
Once again you will plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria. Those who plant them will enjoy the fruit.
There will be a day when watchmen on the mountains of Ephraim will call out this message: ‘Arise! Let’s go to Zion, to Yahweh our Elohim.”

The Response:
Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24 (NOG)
Confitemini Domino

 

Give thanks to Yahweh because he is good,*
because his mercy endures forever.
Israel should say,*
“His mercy endures forever.”
14 Yah is my strength and my song.*
He is my savior.
15 The sound of joyful singing and victory is heard in the tents of righteous people.*
The right hand of Yahweh displays strength.
16 The right hand of Yahweh is held high.*
The right hand of Yahweh displays strength.
17 I will not die,*
but I will live and tell what Yah has done.
18 Yah disciplined me severely,*
but he did not allow me to be killed.
19 Open the gates of righteousness for me.*
I will go through them and give thanks to Yah.
20 This is the gate of Yahweh*
through which righteous people will enter.
21 I give thanks to you,*
because you have answered me. You are my savior.
22 The stone that the builders rejected*
has become the cornerstone.
23 Yahweh is responsible for this,*
and it is amazing for us to see.
24 This is the day Yahweh has made.*
Let’s rejoice and be glad today!

The Epistle:
Colossians 3:1-7 (AB)

Since you were brought back to life with Maschiach, focus on the things that are above—where Maschiach holds the highest position.
Keep your mind on things above, not on worldly things.
You have died, and your life is hidden with Maschiach in Elohim.
Maschiach is your life. When he appears, then you, too, will appear with him in glory.
Therefore, put to death whatever is worldly in you: your sexual sin, perversion, passion, lust, and greed (which is the same thing as worshiping wealth).
It is because of these sins that Yahuah Elohim’s anger comes on those who refuse to obey him.
You used to live that kind of sinful life.

The Gospel:
Matthew 28:1-10 (NOG)

After the day of worship, as the sun rose Sunday morning, Mary from Magdala and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
Suddenly, there was a powerful earthquake. An angel of the Lord had come down from heaven, rolled the stone away, and was sitting on it.
He was as bright as lightning, and his clothes were as white as snow.
The guards were so deathly afraid of him that they shook.
The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid! I know you’re looking for Yeshua, who was crucified.
He’s not here. He has been brought back to life as he said. Come, see the place where he was lying.
Then go quickly, and tell his disciples that he has been brought back to life. He’s going ahead of them into Galilee. There they will see him. Take note that I have told you.”
They hurried away from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to tell his disciples.
Suddenly, Yeshua met them and greeted them. They went up to him, bowed down to worship him, and took hold of his feet.
10 Then Yeshua said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go, tell my followers to go to Galilee. There they will see me.”
