Mary, mother of James and Joses

From Monarchists.Wiki

Mary was the mother of the James the Less and Joses [Joseph]. She, along with Mary Magdalene and Salome, was among the many women who witnessed Jesus' crucifixion from a distance.

After Jesus' death and the Sabbath, Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Salome purchased spices and planned to anoint Jesus' body with them. An earthquake occurred, and an angel rolled away the stone in front of the tomb.

The women traveled to Jesus' tomb and were discussing which of them were to move the stone in front of the tomb's entrance. When they arrived, they found that the stone had already been moved away from the entrance of the tomb. They entered the tomb and found an angel (or two angels). They were confused. The angel(s) told them that Jesus had risen.

The women reported what they had witnessed to Jesus' Apostles, but the Apostles did not believe them initially.

Now after the Sabbath, near dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. And a great earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone [from the opening of the tomb], and sat on it. The angel’s appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were as white as snow. The guards shook, paralyzed with fear [at the sight] of him and became like dead men [pale and immobile]. But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said [He would]. Come! See the place where He was lying. Then go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee [as He promised]. There you will see Him; behold, I have told you.

— Matthew 28:1–28:7 (AMP)

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome purchased [sweet-smelling] spices, so that they might go and anoint Him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they were saying to one another, Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb? Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, though it was extremely large. Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right, wearing a [long, stately] white robe; and they were amazed and bewildered. And he said to them, Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen; He is not here. See, [here is] the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see Him there, just as He told you. They went out and fled from the tomb, for they were seized with trembling and astonishment; and they said nothing [about it] to anyone, because they were afraid.

[Now Jesus, having risen [from death] early on the first day of the week, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons. She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe it.

— Mark 16:1–16:11 (AMP)

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, the women went to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared [to finish anointing the body]. And they found the [large, circular] stone rolled back from the tomb, but when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed and wondering about this, suddenly, two men in dazzling clothing stood near them; and as the women were terrified and were bowing their faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why are you looking for the living One among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how He told you, while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise [from death to life]. And they remembered His words, and after returning from the tomb, they reported all these things to the eleven [apostles] and to all the rest. Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna [the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward] and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles. But their report seemed to them like idle talk and nonsense, and they would not believe them.

— Luke 24:1–24:11 (AMP)

The Apostles would later believe in what the women said after the resurrected Jesus appeared before them.
