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!
