Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 20:11-15.


John 20:12

_ _ one at the head, and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain — not merely proclaiming silently the entire charge they had had of the body, of Christ [quoted in Luthardt], but rather, possibly, calling mute attention to the narrow space within which the Lord of glory had contracted Himself; as if they would say, Come, see within what limits, marked off by the interval here between us two, the Lord lay! But she is in tears, and these suit not the scene of so glorious an Exit. They are going to point out to her the incongruity.
