The special significance of sundown on Easter Sunday

John 20
ON THE EVENING OF THAT DAY, THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you." When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were GLAD when they saw the Lord.
Though he appeared to individuals throughout this day, this hour is the first time he appeared to the gathered apostolic Church. This is the hour that closes the Easter Triduum, an hour for gladness among the disciples of the Lord.
