Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).
How often have we underplayed who Jesus is, supposing him to be the gardener. Jesus does not rebuke us but merely calls our name. A surprising joy of the resurrection is that the one who appears as a gardener, and later cooks their breakfast, is at the same time the Lord of glory.
