“And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.”
She was the first to see Jesus after He had risen.
“Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”
She saw two angels inside the tomb where He had lain.
“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.”
Then she turned and saw Someone else.
“And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.”
She pleaded with the Man to tell her where He was.
“Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.”
He said her name, and she knew immediately it was Him.
“Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.”
He told her to go and tell the others.
“Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”
She obeyed Him.
She went to tell the disciples that He was alive, but they did not believe her.
“And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.”
Mary Magdalene serves as an example of how we should obey Christ by telling others about Him.
