The Empty Tomb ruined your death.

What do you think the disciples felt when they saw the tomb was empty?
They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don`t know where they have laid him! .Surprise disbelief and the only answer they can think of is human intervention. Only the yet again physical detail of the rolled up head linnen sets them in the right direction. Why would have anyone who transferred the body taken away that piece of clothing if he was to bury him respectfully somewhere else and had they taken him away out of disparaging intentions, why taking such great care in folding it away? Now they believe. Jesus had revealed it in anticipation only to very few of them with the Transfiguration. The others know it now: For as yet they didn`t know the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Mary Magdalene had had no pre experiencing of the miracle but she believed almost immediately apart from the initial misunderstanding him for the gardener. They need a proof. She probably din`t even notice the linnen, but believed his words immediately like she had always done before.

The Empty Tomb

Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb. Therefore she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have laid him!"
Therefore Peter and the other disciple went out, and they went toward the tomb. They both ran together. The other disciple outran Peter, and came to the tomb first. Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he didn't enter in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and entered into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying, and the cloth that had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. So then the other disciple who came first to the tomb also entered in, and he saw and believed. For as yet they didn't know the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
