Dec 14 They fled from the tomb in fear saying nothing to anyone on the way. On returning from the tomb, the women,2 including Mary Magdalene, Joanna wife of Chuza, Mary mother of James, told these things to the other disciples. It seemed to them as fable and they disbelieved.3 Mary Magdalene ran to Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved, saying, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we dont know where he is laid.” The other disciple outran Peter to the tomb, looked in and saw the linen clothes, but didnt go in. Then Peter arrived and went inside where he saw the linen clothes, and the cloth which had been around Jesus head folded up by itself and wondered. When the other disciple went inside, he saw and believed.4 They still did not understand the scripture that Jesus was to rise from the dead. So the disciples returned home.
