I post this every Easter.

Mary Magdalene, on Easter Morning

It’s the first thing in the morning. Your heart is broken. He saw Him tortured and killed.

Now you’re at the tomb.

And He is not there. The stone’s rolled away, the guards are knocked out, and Jesus isn’t there…

Imagine it.

  1. Such lovely, poignant writing. My own imagination was overcome and I enjoyed this, thoroughly. I read it twice and I will probably read it several times more.

  2. When we read of these events in the Bible, we already know what is going to happen, but the people living it at the time did not. They had followed this teacher and learned from him, but none fully expected what happened. Even when Jesus told them, they didn’t completely get it. Now this happens. It had to have been very difficult and when the tomb was opened, the first reaction had to have been that there was even more trouble. It would have been amazing to see how it all worked out.

    1. I always think when I read that passage that some doubted at first but then did believe – why else would the Holy Spirit have brought them there? That’s just me.

  3. Jesus was a carpenter, then appears as a gardener. It makes me think of Hebrews 13 where we are told that angels sometimes appear to us as humans and we don’t even realize it.
