Screenshot 2020-04-12 at 9.24.54 PM“After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb” (Matthew 28:1)

In every gospel account, the first eye witnesses of the empty tomb are women.

In every gospel account, the first human beings the angel announces the resurrection of Jesus to are women.

In every gospel account, the first human beings the resurrected Jesus shows himself to are women.

In every gospel account, it is the women who are told by the angel or Jesus to go tell the disciples that he has risen from the dead.

In every gospel account, the first human beings to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ are women.

Are you getting this?!?!

In the days of Jesus, the testimony of women were not even allowed in the court of law because people didn’t think women could be trusted.

Yet, in every gospel account the first witnesses to the empty tomb and the resurrected Jesus are women. Not only that, women were the first preachers of the resurrection!

Women told the disciples about the empty tomb and that Jesus has risen from the dead (John 20:18).

Women told the disciples where they were to go so that they could meet Jesus (Mt 28:10).

God didn’t have any problems with women proclaiming the truth of the resurrection of Jesus. And neither do we at the Little Church and Lakewoodgrace.
