A group of women followed Jesus from His ministry in Galilee to the last day of His life. They faithfully supported Jesus from their own means (Luke 8:2-3). They witnessed the worst moment in history— Jesus' gruesome death— and observed the desertion of His fearful disciples. They also witnessed Jesus' resurrection. Their experience at the tomb appears in each of the four Gospels. The names of these courageous and faithful women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, Mary the mother of James, Salome, and “other women" who were not identified.
