Graves Yielded Up Their Dead During The Resurrection

The resurrection of my Lord and Savior, and the opening of several graves, was indeed a miraculous event, and it was prophesied by the prophets. The prophecy was given by Samuel, the Lamanite:

“at the day that the Father should glorify his name in me that there were any saints who should arise from the dead, and should appear unto many, and should minister unto them.” (3 Nephi 23: 9)

“And many graves shall be opened, and shall yield up many of their dead; and many saints shall appear unto many.” (Helaman 14: 25)

And it happened!

“And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.” (Matthew 27: 52-53)

This is what I previously wrote after reading 3 Nephi 23:  The Dead Rose After The Crucifixion
