Hear the word of the lord
Easter Sunday Message
I want to look a three people who experienced that first Easter and how it affected them and changed their lives. Firstly, Mary Magdalene. She was a very sick woman when she first met Jesus but he healed her and gave her a new beginning. She was so grateful that she dedicated her life to him. She is mentioned 14 times in the bible making her one of the most prominently mentioned women in the entire New Testament. Immediately after the resurrection of Jesus she went to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus. This was common for Jews of the day and was an act of love and devotion. They didn’t embalm the dead but would anoint the body with spices. When she got there, she found the stone was rolled away and the body gone.
