Looking, seeing, and not knowing who He was.

And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, “Women, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus…John 20:12-14.


Saw, theoreo, Strong’s # 2334: Compare “theater,” “theory,” “theoretical.” To behold, view attentively, perceive, look with a prolonged and continuous  gaze. Theoreo describes looking with a purpose, with interest, and with close scrutiny.

Distinguished from blepo (991), to look, see, to look to someone from whom help is expected, to take care, beware (Mark 15:47).See previous post ( Sept. 15,2012, Do you see it?)on the significance of this magnificent event in the history of the world. The significance in this post is to emphasize the act of Mary looking at Jesus just like we would view a movie at our favorite theatre or home theatre. A prolonged look, continuous gaze.

Tomorrow I will begin a study on dreams and visions. Bring some popcorn, soda, rock candy, bonbons (ice cream). This will be a daily post on a very exciting topic. O Yea, don’t forget your Hubba Bubba®.

    I can imagine the look on Mary’s face. It is the look we will probably have on our faces when we first glimpse the new heaven and the new earth.

    Popcorn ready…

    Looking forward to your study, Manny.
