After what felt like the longest Sabbath ever, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and Salome could finally come and prepare Jesus’ body.
As the sun rises on the third day after his death, the three women approach his tomb with spices for ceremonial anointing. Realizing they couldn't roll back the large stone, they hoped they would find help. But upon arrival, the tomb has already been opened.
Inside they are confronted by a young man dressed in strangely clean white robes. He knows their fear is growing as they wonder who he is and where Jesus body has been taken. He quickly assures them Jesus has not been removed, but has in fact risen from the dead. He’s on his way back home, Galilee. The man in white insists the women to go tell Peter and the other students, but the women are so overwhelmed with shock and fear that they flee and say nothing to anyone.
