Mission Miraculous

One of the most unique missions in history was given to the women who first arrived at Jesus’ empty tomb.  In Matthew 28:7, an angel instructs these women, “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead.”

Jesus’ disciples would die for spreading the message that He rose from the dead.  They would commit their lives to preaching this single message, and then they would lay down these same lives to verify its authenticity.  These men would write much of the New Testament. Through the message that these women carried to them, the disciples would be transformed from a gang of terrified, heartbroken fraidycats to an unstoppable apostolic force.

But before all that, there was this tiny sliver of time when God placed in the hands of these women the crucial task of carrying the message of Christ’s resurrection to the ears of the men who would shout it to the world.  The whole destiny of humanity was couched in the mission entrusted to these women.
