After the death of Jesus, some women went to his tomb to anoint his body:
1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.
2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
Jesus had repeatedly told them: “I will die but on the third day I will rise from the dead”, giving them to understand that on the third day He would not be there and that was how it happened.
