They approached the tomb, which was a cave with a stone in front of it. "Roll away the stone," Jesus directed. -- John 11:38-39

When the Sabbath was over, Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought perfumed oils so that they could anoint Jesus...They were saying to one another, Who will roll away the stone for us?
-- Mark 16: 1 & 3
