Peter and John came to the tomb and both of them noticed the linens, but it was John who “saw and believed” even though he still did not comprehend the whole of it or what really happened. Mary stayed at the tomb and wept. When Jesus asked why she was weeping, she didn’t even recognize Him, the very person she was looking for, because her mind was fixed on finding a dead body. Not until Jesus called her by name, did she recognize Him. Her beloved teacher is alive! She went back to the apostles and told them, “I have seen the Lord” Then she shared everything Jesus had said to her.
