The Myrrh Bearers Find the Tomb Empty

Why would this be any different? Everything Yeshua did was different from the beginning.

We went along bearing myrrh and spices, not wanting to see him dead and blue and badly, so badly wanting to see him one last time.

We ceremoniously carried the myrrh; Mary Magdalene, Mary of Clopas, Martha, Joanna, Salome and Susanna exhausted from crying, yet somber knowing the work before them. Mary Magdalene ran ahead to the tomb hoping to talk to the Roman Guards and have them roll the stone away.

She approached, but the tomb was opened already. She was terrified and screamed, summoning the other women to her quickly. They ran into the tomb and he was gone, but they stopped suddenly at the sight of two angels! Frozen in fear they watched as one angel stood—and then Mary recognized him! “Teacher!” she cried and ran to him. “Do not touch me yet, I have not fully risen,” he replied.

They cried tears of joy having known in their hearts this was possible. He did come back to them. He did not leave them.

Yeshua tells Mary, “Mary, thou blessed one, whom I will perfect in all mysteries, all teachings, you whose heart is raised to the kingdom of heaven more than all thy brethren.”  Mary Magdalene answered, “But I am afraid of Peter, because he threatens me and hates us.” Yeshua assures her, “Any of those filled with the spirit of light will come forward to hear you interpret what I say: no one will be able to oppose you.”

He is with us again.
