It was early in the morning when the women went to the tomb. In their grief they didn’t know what else to do. The one they had believed to be the Messiah, had been brutally tortured to death on a Roman cross. The one whom they had followed for three years: their teacher and friend, was dead. They didn’t understand. When they arrived, they found that the huge stone which had covered the tomb’s entrance was rolled away, and only the linen grave cloths which had wrapped His body, remained on the now-vacant slab. Their grief and bewilderment deepened. As Luke records it, suddenly there appeared to them two men dressed in shining garments, within the tomb, saying, “Why do you seek the living among the dead. He is not here, but is risen.” Luke 24:5-6. They were struck with awe and amazement. Another of their group, Mary Magdalene was told, as Mark records it, “go and tell His disciples!” Mark 16:7 And the women did just that.
