(Continued From Page 12) THE EMPTY TOMB Again they slept but a few hours. As the first streaks of light showed inthe sky, the women were up again, making ready to go to Jerusalem. "We will see that all is done as it should be,'* Martha assured the mother. "Youdo not wish to come with usT" She shook her head, a faint smile bles s- ing their errand. "'Go,"" she said gently. "I will wait here." With Martha and Mary went Joanna, Susanna, Salome and the mother's sister. Peter and John were escort.They reached the City as the marketplace was coming to life, stopped long enough to purchase the necessary oils and spices, then went on to the place of burial. All alongthe way Mary urged them to hurry, had difficulty slowing her pace to that of the older, heavier women. When they came in sight of the garden she could hold back no longer but broke into a run that soon left them far behind. "She'll only have to wait for us there,"' Susanna said practically. "It will take all our strength to roll back the stone." "She'll be near him while she waits," Martha explained. "That matters much to her."' But the words were scarcely said when Mary was back. Pale, breathless, her lips trembling so that she could hardly speak. "He's not there,"' she cried. "The tomb is empty. They've taken him awayl" "What are yousaying?" Peterdemanded. "Have you gone mad7" "There's no one there," she insisted. "No one. Where have they taken him7'* Peter started to run and Johntoo, over- taking and passing the older apostle. Mary, regaining control, hastened after them and the other women quickened their steps till Martha, who had come to a sudden stand- still, was left alone in the roadway. REALIZATION Not there. Empty. Not there. She stood and saw the others go and did not follow. Of course he's not there. Would he who called her brother forth from death stay himself entombed? Again and again he had told them, They will put him to death and on the third day he will rise again. And today is the third day.
