Luke 24:25–27, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

So he said to them, “You foolish people – how slow of heart to believe all
that the prophets have spoken!
Wasn’t it necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and enter into
his glory?”
Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the
things written about himself in all the scriptures.
Now on the first day of the week, at early dawn, the women went to the
tomb, taking the aromatic spices they had prepared.
Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming to hear him.
But the Pharisees and the experts in the law were complaining, “This man
welcomes sinners and eats with them.”
So Jesus told them this parable:
“Which one of you, if he has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, would
not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go look for the one that
is lost until he finds it?
Then when he has found it, he places it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
Returning home, he calls together his friends and neighbours, telling them,
‘Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost.’
I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one
sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need
to repent.
“Or what woman, if she has ten silver coins and loses one of them, does
not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search thoroughly until she finds it?
