John 20

John 20, before sunlight on Sunday morning, the day after Jesus crucifixion, Mary Magdalene was at the tomb.  When she realized that the body of Jesus was gone she ran and told the apostles.  John and Peter ran to the tomb and went inside.  Mary sees Jesus in the garden and she goes and tells the others what he said to her.  Jesus appears behind locked doors in the apostles’ mist twice giving them instructions and the second time Thomas was there and believed once he saw Jesus hands and side.

Why was it important to let us know that John ran faster to the tomb than Peter?  Where were the soldiers at this time?  Being that Mary arrived before daylight it seems that they should have still been there.  And finally, what is the significance of the head covering being rolled up and placed separate from the linens covering the body?

Have a great day,
