In the same vein of "touch" meaning "hold me not," and in the light of the cute "grandma experience" cited above, I have always felt that touch/hold me not meant "detain me not"...for I have a schedule to keep. Maybe he, also, would rather not have parted at that time from someone he had such a close relationship with, but he had always kept "being about his Father's business" at the forefront. I have no doubt that Mary understood this. The scriptures are typically the "cliff notes," and someday we will know the full account of all that took place between them in that moment.
