“Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.”
She saw the stone was rolled away.
“The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.”
She ran to Simon Peter and John to tell them that the body of Jesus was missing.
“It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.”
The men ran to see for themselves.
Then they saw the linen clothes and the napkin.
She stood outside the tomb weeping, and stayed there as the disciples went home.
“But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,”
She saw two angels inside the tomb.
“And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.”
She had forgotten what Jesus had said would happen.
Mary Magdalene also serves as an example of the fear that can consume our lives when we forget what the Word of God has said.
