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. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, (John) and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. Then cometh Simon Peter following (John), and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, AND BELIEVED. THEN THE DISCIPLES WENT AWAY AGAIN UNTO THEIR OWN HOME. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 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. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, MARY. She turned herself, and saith unto him, RABBONI; which is to say, Master. 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. MARY Magdalene came and TOLD THE DISCIPLES THAT SHE HAD SEEN THE LORD, and that He had spoken these things unto her. John 20:1-3,6,8, 10-14,16-18. The disciples SAW Jesus was missing, YAWN, AND WENT HOME. Mary stayed, asked, and looked further, for Christ. She was rewarded for her continuing efforts to seek for Him, BY HIS WORDS AND HIS PRESENCE. She stayed seeking for More, than just, "He's not here". SHE WANTED HER CHRIST AND WASN'T GOING TO QUIT LOOKING FOR HIM, (MORE), UNTIL SHE FOUND HIM, to, Be Blessed.
