Countdown to the Resurrection (part 5) | The Good News of Easter is that because Jesus came back from death, we, too, will live after death. We have now gone past hour 0 in our countdown from the Last Supper to blast-off time—when Jesus rose from the dead. In our text, we read about Mary Magdalene, one of the eyewitnesses of the resurrection. She was the last one at the cross and the first one to the tomb. She was confronted with three Easter Questions that day, and they’re the same three questions each of us must answer.
