May This Story…

…never become too familiar. Be amazed this Easter morning.

Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been removed from (lifted out of the groove across the entrance of) the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciples, whom Jesus [tenderly] loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have laid Him!”

And they came running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and arrived at the tomb first. And stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but He did not enter.

Then Simon Peter came up and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there; But the burial napkin which had been around Jesus’ head, was not lying with the other linen cloths, but was still rolled up [wrapped round and round] in a place by itself.

Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, went in too; and he saw ans was convinced. And believed.

Then the disciples went back again to their homes.

Mary Magdalene remained standing outside the tomb sobbing. As she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb.

And she saw two angels in white sitting there one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

And they said to her, “Woman, why are you sobbing?” She told them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they have laid Him.”

On saying this she turned around and saw Jesus standing there but she did not know [recognize] that it was Jesus.

Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you crying so? For Whom are you looking?”

Supposing that it was a gardener, she replied, “Sir, if you carried Him away from here, tell me where you have put Him and I will take Him away.”

Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

Turing to Him she said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!”
