The First Day of the Week.

It was the first day of the week. Passover was over. Mary Magdalene, Joanna and Mary, Jesus’s mother, went to the tomb. Jesus didn’t have a proper burial, because the sabbath was beginning the day He dead. When they got to the tomb, the stone was rolled away. They went in and His grave clothes were folded. And there stood 2 men in bright clothing. They asked Mary why she was crying. Mary Magdalene asked where they had taken Jesus. They said, Jesus isn’t here as He said. Mary went outside and sat down and cried. She saw a man standing there and thought He was the gardener. He asked her why are you crying? Mary asked where have you taken my Lord? Jesus said to her, Mary. Her eyes were opened and cried out Lord. Jesus said don’t touch Me. I haven’t ascended to My Father yet. Go and tell my disciples what you have seen. After she told them, Peter and John ran to the tomb. Both went in and John believed and Peter didn’t. As Jesus said later to Thomas, blessed are those who haven’t seen and yet believe. This happened 2000 years ago. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
