Easter Reflections...

So amazing..Jesus first recorded words after His Resurrection were to a woman..and what a woman she was...Mary Magdalene, the one from whom Jesus had cast seven evil spirits. John 20:11-17 "But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!" She turned and said to £Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher)."
What a sweet sound it must have been to hear Jesus say her name. He is still speaking the name of all who would trust in Him. Listen..He is speaking!
