April 17, 2022– The women returned to the disciples to tell what they had found “but these words seemed to them an idle tale and they did not believe them.” I don’t know about you, but I can resonate with the disciple’s disbelief. I can understand how their words would seem like an idle tale. I mean they had just experienced the brutal murder of their friend, their lord, and their teacher. They had all just spent the sabbath in grief. Or rather, in shock by all that had happened. The women had traveled only hours ago to the tomb, carrying spices to complete the burial ritual. Jesus was dead. They had seen it with their own eyes.
