Read Luke 24:1-12 with your family.
Some churches often forget that the women came back to Jesus’ tomb while the men were hiding in the upper room, scared about what would happen. In all the excitement about Jesus’ resurrection, we forget who the first witnesses were to the empty tomb.
Jesus was very intentional about teaching women and men about God and the world God wants to make. It wasn’t only about the 12 named disciples and what they understood or the mistakes they made. The women were there, learning and believing.
In all Christian traditions, Mary Magdalene is a saint because she was the first one to tell everyone about Jesus’ resurrection.
