Chirst appearing to Mary Magdalene Empty Tomb
No Painted Eggs? No little fluffy Chickies? No Sweets? No Easter Manicures? NO! It’s not that I think there is anything wrong with that…it’s just not what Easter MEANS to me. When I reflect upon Easter, Christianity’s Holiest Holiday remembering the Death and Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ…I think of one thing! The EMPTY Tomb.
The Easter Sculpture above represents Jesus appearing to Mary Magdalene, who along with other women, visited Jesus’s tomb to prepare his body for burial. In John 20:16 ,
“Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out.
Can’t you just see that in her face in the above work of art? She is stunned, overjoyed, shocked, relieved…all at the same moment. I am like Mary to a degree. Stunned that Jesus gave up his life for us, stunned that God gave up His only Son for us and amazed to see Him again on Easter but immensely relieved.
