Mary Magdalene and the Women, Peter and John 

Matthew 28:9-15, Mark 16:9-11, Luke 24:9-12 and John 20:3-18

Mary Magdalene just told Peter and John, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.”

John 20:3-17 

Peter and John therefore went forth and came to the tomb. They both ran together, but John outran Peter and came to the tomb first. 

John, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet he did not go in. 

Then Simon Peter, following him, came and went into the tomb, and saw the linen clothes lie and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Luke tells us that Peter was “wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Then John, who came to the tomb first, went in also, and he saw, and believed. 

For as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 

Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. 

But Mary Magdalene stood outside at the tomb weeping. As she wept, she stooped down and looked into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 

Angels: Woman, why do you weep? 

Mary: Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they have laid him. 

And when she had said this, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing there and didn’t know that it was Jesus. 

Jesus: Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek? 

Mary (supposing him to be the gardener): Sir, if you have carried him from here, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away. 

Jesus: Mary. 

Mary turned.

Mary: Rabboni (which is to say, Master).

Jesus: Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to my Father. Go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father; and to my God and your God. 

Matthew 28:9-15 
And as the women went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them.

Jesus: All hail. 

And they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him. 

Jesus: Do not be afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. 

Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed to the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large amounts money to the soldiers.

Chief priests: Say, His disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept. And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him and secure you. 

So the soldiers took the money, and did as they were told: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. 

Luke 24:9-11 

The women returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

 Mark adds, Mary “went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.”

It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, who told these things to the apostles.

And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they did not believed them.
