Why did Jesus show Himself first to Mary Magdelen and not to His mother?

And Mary Magdelene was the first at the tomb. So why was Mary Magdelene the first there, and not the other Mary?


Because Scripture doesn’t mention that He appeared first to His mother doesn’t mean that He didn’t. It’s very likely that He did. Scripture doesn’t cover everything.
