Mary Magdalene, as well as Peter, was evidently at the
sepulchre twice on that morning of the resurrection. The
first time of her going was some short time before her
companions, the other Mary and Salome (Mt 28:1); and observing
that the stone had been removed, she returned to inform Peter
and John. In the meantime, the other Mary and Salome came to
the sepulchre, and saw the angel, as recorded by Matthew and
Mark. While these women returned to the city, Peter and John
went to the sepulchre, passing them at some distance, or going
another way, followed by Mary Magdalene, who stayed after
their return. This was her second journey; when she saw two
angels, and then Jesus himself, as here related; and
immediately after Jesus appeared to the other women, as they
returned to the city. (Mt 28:9, 10.) In the meantime Joanna
and her company arrived at the sepulchre, when two angels
appeared to them, and addressed them as the one angel had done
the other women, (Lu 24:1-10.) They immediately returned to
the city, and by some means found the apostles before the
others arrived, and informed them of what they had seen; upon
which Peter went a second time to the sepulchre, but saw only
the linen clothes lying. (Lu 24:12.)
