Jesus appears to

Mary Magdalene


When Jesus was suffering on the cross, some women stood by His side: St. Mary (His mother) & St. Mary Magdalene.

  • After Jesus died, these women went home in total darkness & sadness.

Joseph, a rich man who loved Jesus, asked permission to take the Lord’s body for burial.

  • Joseph & another good man Nicodemuslowered the Body, and wrapped Him in a shroud.

They placed Him in a new tomb. then rolled a stone to close the tomb; it was a BIGstone that took 3 strong men!


The Phariseeswent to the Pilate: “This Jesus told His disciples He can rise after 3 days, please make sure the tomb is well sealed so His disciples won’t steal His body & tell lies”.

  • Pilatetold them: “You go, seal it and guard it yourselves”.

Early Easter Sunday morning Mary Magdalene & her friends went to the tomb...

It was empty, Jesus was not there!


An angelat the tomb told the women to not be afraid.

Jesuswho was crucified is ALIVE, and go tell the others!


Maryran quickly to tell the others

  • Peter& Johnran to the empty tomb, they saw the linen cloths that wrapped Jesus was folded up neatly.
  • They went home sad & did not yet understand that Jesushad risen!

Marystood weeping

  • She saw 2 angels: ”Woman, why are you weeping?”
  • “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him”
  • Jesus standing there: “Woman why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”
  • “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where and will take Him away”.

Jesus called: “Mary!”

  • “Rabboni!” (Teacher)
  • “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God’”.
  • Mary went home with joy & told the disciples what the Lord told her!

    • Our Lord had the new beautiful, resurrected & glorified body, different than the body He had before His crucifixion

    • Worldly distractions – money, greed …
    • Pride or lack of humility
    • Lack of love
