Gospel of John - Examine the Witnesses

Chapter 20 – the witness of a former demon-possessed prostitute -  “Mary Magdalene came announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord.”

Did you re-read the heading above to make sure that’s really what it said?   Doesn’t seem like good credentials for a witness does it?  Yet here was someone whose life was so radically changed and turned around by Jesus, that Mary was among the first to see the resurrected Jesus.  And she had a lot of people to tell.  Just like John, the write of this Gospel who ends this chapter with the following words:

“Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”
