3rd Sunday in June
Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it
was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb. And so she
ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said
to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where
they have laid Him."
Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb.
And the two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than
Peter, and came to the tomb first; and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen
wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.
Simon Peter therefore also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he beheld
the linen wrappings lying there, and the face-cloth, which had been on His head,
not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.
So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb entered then also, and he saw
and believed. For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise
again from the dead. So the disciples went away again to their own homes. John 20:1-10
Even after Jesus' teachings prior to His death, the disciples still did not the
understand the Scripture...that Jesus must rise from what?
Do you believe that Jesus died for you and me? Do you believe that He rose from

Early on Sunday morning Mary Magdalene went to the tomb where Jesus' body was. It
was still dark. Mary saw that the large stone that covered the entrance was moved
away. So Mary ran to Simon Peter and the other follower (the one Jesus loved). Mary
said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb. We don't know where they put him."
So Peter and the other follower started going to the tomb. They were both running,
but the other follower ran faster than Peter. So the other follower reached the
tomb first. The follower bent down and looked in. He saw the pieces of linen cloth
lying there, but he did not go in.
Then Simon Peter came from behind him. Peter went into the tomb. He saw the pieces
of linen lying there. He also saw the cloth that had been around Jesus' head. The
cloth was folded up and laid in a different place from the pieces of linen.
Then the other follower went in. This was the follower that had reached the tomb
first. He saw what had happened and believed. These followers did not yet understand
from the Scriptures that Jesus must rise from death. Then the followers went back
home. John 20:1-10 (ERV)
