why do you weep? whom do you seek?

John 20


Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

I think that Mary Magdalene was at an all-time low point here. She had been focused on the natural physical in the world, like the Lord's body and His death.

This is an interesting question, Who are you looking for? She thought she was seeking Jesus, because she was looking for His dead body.

Sometimes in life, I think that we make the same mistake. We think we are seeking God while we are focused on the natural physical things. Then, when those things don't work out, we get depressed. Mary would come to find out that Jesus was right there, with her! We can know Him too, through His Word, by faith.

For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

I think it is interesting that it says they knew not. Hadn't He told them these things, or hadn't they heard it read in the Scriptures? That makes me think of how we've heard the things of Christ in the Scriptures many times, but do we really know it? The key is to believe.
