TITLE: Just As He Said 04/01/14

I enjoyed writing it and I thank you for taking the time to do this.
One day in history, two young women were seen walking on a road in Galilee. They were overheard in a deeply personal conversation.

“He saved me from certain death. I was about to be stoned to death. He became my friend and liberator that day. I have never before been defended by anyone, let alone a man of renown.”

One was tall and stunningly pretty and the other was plain and serene.

The women were on their way home from the market. They were carrying herbs and produce for their household. There was camaraderie between them that was tangible.

One was called Salome and the other Mary.

The listener did not have to wait long to know who they were talking about.

Salome continued “How is it justice for the woman to be stoned and not the man? Well, I am done with that life. Yeshua saved my life and forgave me. Justice was done in the town square that day.”

Mary was heard to say “Well, He saved my family from ruin when he brought my brother back to life. Life for two women with no man is not to be desired. I am so happy that Lazarus and Yeshua have been great friends. I live for his visits. He teaches with such gentleness. I am hungry for His words, they are like food to me, and He listens to me too. He is my dearest friend.”

As though in an afterthought, she added “Poor Martha, I am completely lost to her when he visits”.

Almost inaudibly, Salome whispered to Mary
“He keeps telling us that he will be killed and tortured so we must be ready. Jehovah God, His Father needs him to do this but he will rise again. I tremble to think of it. We must be on guard and ready.”

One of them said “I know that He is The Messiah. He never lies. The best thing is that He has set us women free in here,” and she pointed to her heart.


“I am so glad he saved you from that mob,” said Mary as they parted at Salome’s back gates.


Weeks later when they met again they were observing the `gruesome injustice’ in Jerusalem. They were with the travelling women that had devoted their lives to him and ministered to him. {Mark 15:41}


It broke their hearts to see him so mistreated and with such senseless brutality by the soldiers and the Sanhedrin high priests. They saw the whole spectacle.

They were determined to see it all and they did not desert him. The women did not care who knew how they deeply loved this innocent Man who was being tortured. Up the hill they went and there they remained till the horrific end when He breathed his last breath.

They saw how and where His body was laid and then sealed in the tomb.

After the Sabbath they worked together with the other women to prepare fragrant spices and perfumed herbs that was needed to preserve the body of Christ; all the time wiping tears from their pale shocked faces.


As they prepared the herbs they knew this was one last act of friendship and love that they could do for Him.

They all agreed that Yeshua was more than their friend. He was God, the Messiah who had freed them from cultural bondage, and now He was dead.


No one dared to voice the hope that He would rise as He had said. The eleven disciples were in hiding. They were afraid but they would go to see Him where He lay in his tomb.


Finale
“He is not here. He has risen just as He said….”
{Matthew 28:6}
