Eternal Promise

After the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the tomb. The events of the Resurrection were not known to them, and they were surprised to find the stone rolled aside. When they realized Jesus' body was no longer in the tomb, they were filled with sadness and concern. Christ appeared to them later to tell them to send the Apostles to Galilee so He could be with them. The silhouette of the risen Christ can be seen standing in the sunlight outside the door way of the tomb.
