Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 329

  1. Early on the first day of the week, while its was still dark… (John 20:1).

How did those who loved Jesus spend the agonizing hours between the Cross and the empty tomb? We can’t be sure. But we do see this moment where Mary Magdalene is scurrying back to the site of life’s worst possible day. It was here that they laid Him. It was here, in a fresh cut tomb near the spot where he was crucified that she had watched hope die the most tragic death. And it is here that she must come in the dark hours of a new week–one void of the future she had imagined. Spices in hand, Mary will cling to this place until they seal it shut or maybe she will cling to this place forever. We must never forget that before anyone could proclaim “He is risen” these friends had to face “He is dead.”
