Mary- Overcoming the Past (John 20:11-18)

Pastor Timothy N. Johnson, March 18, 2018
Part of the "Jesus is Dead" series, preached at a Sunday service

Many of us struggle with the fear of falling back into our past. This is also probably they way Mary felt kneeling in the garden near the empty tomb wondering if Jesus was dead or alive... "am I headed back to where I came from?" Listen in to this weeks message as Pastor Tim Johnson shares a great message about faith and hope in Christ as we continue our series "Jesus is Dead."

John 20:11-18

11But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 12And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15Jesus 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. 16Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 17Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. 18Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
