John 20.1-18: One Word

Just one word. Her name. That's all it took. While the unfathomable drama of resurrection is elsewhere in the gospel reading for Easter (John 20:1-18), there is deep personal drama in the one moment when Mary is known by and knows Jesus.

Mary.

She recognizes the voice. She looks up. And she knows. Jesus is alive. The Christ is risen.
Indeed.





















The sculptural group shown here, Jesus and Mary Magdalene, is by Bruce Wolfe. In the collection of Old Mission Santa Barbara. For the mission, see: http://www.santabarbaramission.org/ For Bruce Wolfe, see:  http://brucewolfe.com/religious-statuary/
