Luke 24:10

Context
24:10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, 1  Joanna, 2  Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles.

1 sn Mary Magdalene is always noted first in the appearance lists in the gospels. It is unusual that the first appearance would involve women as in this culture their role as witnesses would not be well accepted. It is a sign of the veracity of the account, because if an ancient were to create such a story he would never have it start with women.

2 sn On Joanna see Luke 8:1-3.
