Mary Magdalen found Jesus’ empty tomb

The sun had not yet risen in the east, but Mary Magdalen was awake. She had not been able to rest or sleep since Jesus had been crucified. She had seen him after he had been beaten and then forced to carry his own cross up the hill to Calvary. That was where they killed him. Now here she was slowly walking toward the tomb where Jesus had been buried. She thought she had run out of tears, but still she cried.

When she finally reached the tomb, she discovered the heavy stone that had sealed the entrance had been rolled away. Mary carefully stepped into the cold, dark hole that had been carved out of the rock.
