Those of us who are Christian fortunately use the same lectionary or readings from the Bible used every day and especially Sunday for worship.But at this season of the year, we are particularly blessed to have Easter. However, at the Easter Sunday reading of the Gospel, which is John 20:9, we have missed a significant part of Jesus’ message of the resurrection. The verses that follow, 10-18, tell us about his beloved apostle, Mary Magdalene. They tell us that she was the one who was favored by Jesus to be the first witness to his resurrection and the first to be commissioned to “go and tell the others.” This great commissioning gave to her the title “apostle to the apostles.” Jesus’ opinion of how women are to be treated is certainly demonstrated in these few lines that are missing at Easter.

So if you think that this is something everyone should hear about, please discuss with your pastor about adding these verses to the Easter message.

Wishing you a very blessed and informed Easter.
