Discipleship 101: What Would JESUS Teach. “Why do you weep?”

What did you expect?

Mary did expect to see JESUS. He died three earlier. Why should she expect to see Him alive?

Because He said He would, just as it had been written in Scripture. Moses taught it. The Prophets preached it. It had been written.

HE IS the living proof. Do you believe? Are you willing to commit and follow Him ? Do not weep any longer.


The Proclamation of John the Herald – Chapter 20

ܝܘܚܢܢ

1 And the first day of the week, in the morning, while it was yet dark, Mary Magdalena came to the sepulchre: and she saw that the stone was removed from the grave.


2 And she ran, and came to Simon Cephas, and to that other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them:
They have taken away our Lord from the sepulchre, and I know not where they have laid him.


3 And Simon set out, and the other disciple, and they were going to the sepulchre.


4 And they both ran together; but that disciple outran Simon, and came first to the sepulchre.


5 And he looked in, and saw the linen cloths lying:
but he did not go in.


6 And after him came Simon; and he entered the sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths lying;


7 and the napkin, that had been wrapped about his head, was not with the linen cloths, but was folded up, and laid in a place by itself.


8 Then entered also the disciple who came first to the sepulchre; and he saw, and believed.


9 For they had not yet learned from the scriptures, that he was to arise from the dead.


10 And those disciples went away again to their place.


11 But Mary remained standing at the sepulchre, and weeping; and as she wept, she looked into the sepulchre


12 and saw two angels in white, who were sitting, one at the pillows and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus was laid.


13 And they said to her:
Woman, why weepest thou?
She said to them:
Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him


14 Having said this, she turned round, and saw Jesus standing, but did not know that it was Jesus.


15 Jesus said to her:
Woman, why weepest thou ? and, whom dost thou seek?
And she supposed that he was the gardener:
and she said to him:
My lord, if thou hast borne him away, tell me where thou hast laid him, [and] I will go and take him away.
