Okay, don't tell them. "When Jesus"... This is March 16:9. "When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first"... Not Warren Buffett, not Peter, not even Lady Gaga, not even Jay Z, not even a pop star, not even a professional athlete, not even a preacher. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene. That's not her last name, by the way. That's where she was from. She is from Magdala. She was identified by where she was from. She was wealthy. The gospels mention her 12 times. She supported the ministry of Jesus. She was one of the women who made the ministry go forward, and he appeared first to Mary Magdalene out of whom he had driven seven demons. Wow. He did a lot for this woman. She did a lot for him. She financed part of his ministry, Antiquity tells us, but what she did for him did not compare to what he did for her.
