How futile was all this?

Answer

"In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and
the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His
countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: and for fear of him the keepers did shake,
and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye
seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the
Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead." Matt. 28: 1-7. See also
Mark 16: 1-16; Luke 24: 1-8 44-46; John 20: 1-9.
