The Women of Easter

jesus and three marts

The women waited with Him on The Cross.

The women confronted an empty tomb.

The women received word that Christ had risen.

  1. Women are really important to the whole story. I love this post because it's so real.

    I can only speak for myself, but I forget because it seems like the part of woman is just brushed over. It's between the lines, you know?

    Thanks for reminding me! Thanks for reminding all of us!

    I hope you had a great Easter, Rachel!

    1. I was thinking about it so much more this year. Becoming a mother has made me see the whole thing from a different perspective. I zeroed in on this part more than I had before. I was thinking about how hard it would be to lose a child. And, then, I was thinking about how humble and loyal the women were (like most women and mothers I know), and how they were rewarded for it in the tomb.

  2. Great topic! Few words but powerful message; I love that Christ was pro-lady, and was very vocal about it, throughout His ministry. It makes sense the ladies would hold importance during the resurrection aspect....but there was so much confusion and stuff going on after the tomb was found empty that I've never really taken time to focus specifically on how important women are to that aspect of the story. Thanks for giving me a different perspective!

    1. I hadn't thought about it either until this year. I was thinking about how loyal the women were, and how they were rewarded for it in the tomb.

  5. I'm so glad you shared this and so glad you linked up with Tuesday's Prayers! I hadn't given a lot of thought to the women of the resurrection until recently. I was thinking about the women on Easter, watching an excerpt from "Passion of the Christ." I felt such grief thinking of the pain Mary must have gone through, witnessing her child on that cross. I don't think there could be a worse pain for a mother.Thanks for helping me to see things from a different point of view.

  7. I've often wondered how much Mary, His Mother, knew before the crucifixion. Thank you for a lovely reminder of the ones who remained at Jesus' side. -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
