He Appeared to Mary Magdalene
A great earthquake had taken place. An angel clad in brilliant white – the Bible says his appearance was like lightning and his clothing was as white as snow – rolled away the stone. In terror the Roman guards fell to the ground.
Meanwhile, when Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James came to the tomb, the angel told them ”Do not be fearful, for I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said He would. Come, see the place where He was.”
Cautiously, Mary Magdalene obeyed. There, she viewed two angels in white, sitting where the body had been. The Bible tells us they said to her, “Why are you weeping?” Mary responded, “They have taken my Lord away, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”
