A meditation for Easter:

Depending on which book of the Bible is referenced you will find different versions of who went to the tomb on the third day:

  • “…Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome…” Mark 16 (NIV)
  • “…Mary Magdalene and the other Mary…” Matthew 28 (NIV)
  • “…the women…” Luke 24 (NIV)
  • “…Mary Magdalene…” John 20 (NIV)

Regardless of the account, all the writers agree that a woman carried the first Gospel message (He is alive!) to the disciples! A woman (or women) was/were the apostle to the apostles!

Easter, Yvonne DePugh


All women and women’s groups of NALC congregations are members of our organization. The WNALC exists to link NALC women together as a community of faith, hope, and love, to enhance and facilitate the work within our local churches. The Women’s Council and other volunteers are called to assist members in God’s mission, study of His Word, service to others in Christ’s name, and fellowship among Christian women. Please, explore our presentations here and in our other publications, and prayerfully consider your participation with the WNALC.
