Then they remembered that he had said this.
So they rushed back to tell his eleven disciples -- and everyone else -- what had happened.
The women who went to the tomb were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and several others. They told the apostles what had happened,
but the story sounded like nonsense, so they didn't believe it.
However, Peter ran to the tomb to look. Stooping, he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings; then he went home again, wondering what had happened. a13
That same day two of Jesus' followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles b out of Jerusalem.
As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened.
Suddenly, Jesus himself came along and joined them and began walking beside them.
But they didn't know who he was, because God kept them from recognizing him.
17"You seem to be in a deep discussion about something," he said. "What are you so concerned about?" They stopped short, sadness written across their faces.
Then one of them, Cleopas, replied, "You must be the only person in Jerusalem who hasn't heard about all the things that have happened there the last few days."
