The number of women named in the Gospel accounts who saw the empty tomb!

Mary Magdalene, another Mary, Salome, and Joanna arrived at the tomb early in the Sunday morning following Jesus’ death (Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1, Luke 24:10). They “went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus” (Luke 24:1–3).

Why was the tomb empty? Some claim the women went to the wrong tomb or that people had moved Jesus’ body to another place. However, the truth is that the tomb was empty because Jesus rose from the dead. And the women actually saw the risen Christ!

“Jesus met them and said, ‘Greetings!’ And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him” (Matthew 28:9).
