The unfolding and inquiring thought of a young child leads it to put many questions to its parents. The word "why" comes frequently to its lips as it seeks to gain information about itself, its home, and its environment. This spirit of inquiry never ceases. Throughout one's entire human experience the word "why" comes often to one's thought in the search for the answer to one's problems or experiences.
When Mary Magdalene found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher in which the body of Jesus had been sealed, she summoned two of Jesus' disciples. They looked into the empty space and found the graveclothes but no evidence of Jesus' body. Then they went away, undoubtedly with the question, "Why?" on their lips. But Mary, as she looked in, saw two angels, who said (John 20:13), "Why weepest thou?" Shortly she turned and saw Jesus standing there, but did not recognize him.
Then Jesus asked her, "Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?" But Mary did not recognize him until he addressed her by her name, and then her thought was awakened to the fact that it was the beloved Master. In this experience Jesus proved that his material body was actually a mental concept, which at his ascension was replaced by the evidence of his pure spiritual identity.
