(v 8) Then they remembered Jesus’ words.
In a time of crisis and total confusion Jesus mum, Mary Magdalene and Joanna were reminded by 2 angels that Jesus had warned them about the current events.
(v 6 & 7) Remember how he told you when you were still back in Galilee that he had to be handed over to sinners, be killed on a cross, and in three days rise up?”
On first reading I was thinking how daft these ladies were. How could they forget Jesus telling them something like this. Its not as though he was telling them something insignificant. I am going to be killed, actually crucified, but don't worry I am going to rise from the dead. But somehow they had forgotten.
But after thinking about it its something we all very often do, especially in time of crisis, we doubt or forget what Jesus has told us.
Its time to remember what Jesus has told you.
(And if you don't think he has told you anything. Switch off your computer, pick up your Bible and read a chapter you will be "amazed" how loudly he talks.)
