Thank God Mary did not find what she was looking for



"Indeed, why does she weep?—when we should all have had cause to weep to all eternity if what she wept for had been given her, the dead body of her Lord!"

(R. C. H. Lenski, on John 20:13; The Interpretation of St. John's Gospel [Minneapolis, MN: Augsburg Publishing House, 1961], 1351.)

Thank God Mary did not find what she was looking for...in the tomb. Have a blessed day, Dan.

Mary was looking for a corpse. I'm glad she didn't find it anywhere.
