Today it might not seem so strange that women were the first to see the empty tomb of Jesus or that women were the first ones to announce the empty tomb to the rest of Jesus’ followers. But in the Greco-Roman world, women were not the messengers the world trusted to bear important news. And yet, the gospels record women beholding and telling, seeing and sharing, weeping and waiting.

In this episode, we’ll look at the 5 women of Easter, who witnessed the death and resurrection of Christ.
