Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of James and Joseph, had a task to do—Jesus’ body had to be prepared for burial.
Matthew 28:2 says, “At that time there was a strong earthquake. An angel of the Lord came down from heaven, went to the tomb, and rolled the stone away from the entrance.” Did the angel roll away the rock for Jesus? Did God have to have help? I don’t think so. Then the angel says to the women, “Come and see the place where his body was.” The stone was moved—not so Jesus could come out, but so the women could see in!
Just when the road was too dark for Mary Magdalene and Mary, the angel glowed and the Savior showed, and they were forever changed. The lesson? Three words: Don’t give up! God still sends angels and He still moves stones.
