JN 20:1-9
In gospel JN 20: 1-9,  Mary of Magdala goes to Jesus’s tomb before sunrise. She notices that the stone covering the entrance of his tomb has been removed. She runs to go notify Peter and the other disciple of Jesus’s disappearance from his tomb. Both, Peter and the other disciple immediately run to the tomb. The other disciple arrived at the tomb first, but didn’t enter, he just bent down and noticed Jesus’s burial cloths. Moments after, Peter arrived and entered the tomb and also notices Jesus’s burial clothes rolled up in a separate place. At this time, both men didn’t understand what had happened. They didn’t know that Jesus has risen from the dead.
