Peter and John Come Running
Shocked and bewildered the women ran from the tomb to find the disciples. Mary meanwhile had found Peter and John and told them what she had seen.

Mary: They’ve taken Jesus out of the tomb!

John: What?

Mary: It’s true, John, he’s gone. We don’t know where they’ve put him! Hurry, come and look.

Peter: This had better not be a joke! Have you seen what time it is!

Mary: It’s anything but a joke! Come on Peter, hurry!

Peter and John ran for the tomb with Mary close behind. John was the more athletic of the two and as they neared the grave he ran ahead. He slowed as he came to the tomb and stared at the open doorway. He peered inside, leaning on the stone as he gasped for breath.

Peter: Out the way, John!

Peter came crashing through and hurtled straight inside the open tomb. He stared aghast at the empty grave clothes, huffing and snorting as he tried to make sense of it.

Peter: She was right! The woman was right! He’s gone!
