Easter Sudoku

In regular Sudoku, the goal is to fill the 9×9 grid so that each column, row, and 3×3 box contains the digits 1 through 9 only once. This time, to complete the puzzle, use the nine bolded words from Luke 24:5–6:

Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen” (Luke 24:5–6).
