“Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.” Luke 24:10-11
Can you imagine being one of these women? You’ve just witnessed the most amazing thing in the world, the resurrection of Jesus, and you can’t get the other disciples to believe you. You come running with the best news the world has ever heard and they think you’re making it up. “These words seemed to them an idle tale.” Why is it so hard to believe good news? Oof, that’s the question isn’t it, even for today. We are so used to bad news. We are so used to miracles not happening. Can we even allow for something like the resurrection to change our minds? But these women never stopped telling their story. And Jesus backed them up so that the lives to the disciples were changed. The story keeps changing lives. Our lives have been changed by the miracles of the resurrection. Now it’s our turn to be like the women and tell the world of the miracle so they might come to believe too.
