Mary Magdalene therefore, as we said, and Joanna, and Mary the Mother of James, and some others related what they had heard and seen to the Apostles, who were still so stupid as not to remember the repeated Prediction of Christ concerning his Resurrection; or at least not rightly understanding it, they look'd upon this Relation of the Women as a dream or vision. Then Mary M<tgdalent assur'd Peter and John apart, that she had bin in the Tomb, which she found empty •, and that if Jesus was not risen to life again, they had however removed his Body, nor could she possibly guess where they nad laid him. Upon this Peter and John ran both to the Sepulchre; and John, the youngest of the two, being got thither first, stoor/d down, and look'd into the Tomb, where he saw only the linen Clothes in which the Body had bin wrap'd, but went not in. Peter sliortly after came, and went in, and took notice of the linen Clothes, and besides

John then went in al Ib, and having narrowly viewed the Sepulchre, doubted no longer of the truth of what Mary Magdalene had told them, viz.. that some body had remov'd the Body of their Master.

He appears fifthly to the eleven Apostles, whom he upbraids with their Infidelity, and instrutts in several particulars relating to the publishing of the Gos el.

But when she deliver'd her Message to the Apostles and Disciples, they gaveno credit to her strange Relation, so blinded were they, or so unmindful of the premises of their Mailer. The other Women also, whom we mention'd, having in like manner gone a second time to the Sepulchre, which they found empty, upon their return to the Apostles, to assure them that they could no where find the Body of their Master, Jesui himself met them, and first saluting them was immediatly known to- them.
