Jesus did rise from the dead. "behold the place where the laid him" means Look he was there and now he is gone. When Thomas saw him, he wanted proof because he saw him die,(doubting Thomas). Jesus showed him his nail scarred hands and he told them the disciples not to touch him, because he had not yet descended from heaven. In those three days he was suppose to be in the tomb dead, he went to Paradise and took them to heaven, it is empty today. I can give you scriptures if you like, from the King James version.
I laid myself down last night. Now I am risen.
