John 20:1A and 2-8

Mary Magdalene is the first to arrive at the tomb, and her immediate response to her discovery is that someone has stolen Jesus’ body. John arrives, observes, but defers to Peter in entering the tomb. Peter is perplexed by what he sees. John, however, sees and believes. The Lord has risen as he said he would.

Which of the three would I have been at the empty tomb? I can only pray, “Lord, I believe. Help me in my unbelief.”
