Point to Ponder
Mary and Mary Magdalene had waited a day to see Jesus because they couldn’t go on the Sabbath (which was a day of rest). As they were just about at the tomb, the earth suddenly shook and an angel came down from heaven. He easily rolled away the stone at the entrance of the tomb and sat on top of it.
There had been guards watching the tomb so no one would steal Jesus’ body. The women looked at each other and rubbed their eyes since they couldn’t believe what they had seen. When they saw the angel, they fell over and they couldn’t move or speak because they were so afraid.
Then the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus who has died. But He isn’t here; He has risen just as He said He would! Come and see for yourself, the tomb is empty.”
The women were confused. How could this happen? They looked in the tomb and the cloths Jesus had been wrapped in were lying on the ground; the tomb was empty.
So the women hurried away, they were laughing and crying at the same time. As they were running down the path, they turned a corner, and there was Jesus. “Greetings,” He said. The ladies fell at His feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my disciples to come to Galilee. That is where they will see me.”
