Luke 24


The Resurrection of Jesus

And day one of the Sabbaths, [2dawn 1at deep], they came unto the tomb, bringing [2which 3they prepared 1aromatics], and some others with them. And they found the stone having been rolled away from the sepluchre. And having entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass in their being perplexed on account of this, that behold, two men stood by them in attire flashing lightning. [4thrown into fear 1And 3being 2of their], and leaning the face unto the ground, they said to them, Why do you seek the living with the dead? He is not here, but arisen. Remember! as he spoke to you still being in Galilee. Saying that, It is necessary for the son of man to be delivered up into the hands [2men 1of sinful], and to be crucified, and on the third day to rise up. And they remembered his sayings. And they returned from the sepulchre, to report all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 And they were the Magdalene -- Mary, and Joanna, and Mary of James, and the rest with them, the ones who spoke to the apostles these things. 11 And [2appeared 3before 4them 5as 6nonsense 1their words], and they disbelieved them. 12  But Peter having risen up, ran unto the sepulchre; and having leaned over, he sees the linen bands being situated alone, and he went forth to his own place wondering at the thing having taken place.

Jesus Appears and Ascends into Heaven

13 And behold, two of them were going on the same day unto a town at a distance [2stadiums 1of sixty] from Jerusalem -- the name is Emmaus. 14 And they were consorting with one another concerning all these things coming to pass. 15 And it happened during their consorting and debating, that Jesus himself having approached, went with them. 16 And their eyes were kept to not recognize him. 17 And he said to them, What words are these which you argue with one another while walking, and are looking downcast? 18 And answering the one whose name was Cleopas, said to him, You alone sojourn in Jerusalem, and you do not know the things taking place in it in these days? 19 And he said to them, What kind? And they said to him, The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a man, a prophet, mighty in work and word before God and all the people. 20 And how that [5delivered him up 1the 2chief priests 3and 4our rulers] unto the judgment of death, and they crucified him. 21 But we were hoping that he is the one about to ransom Israel. But indeed with all these things, [3this third 4day 2leads in 1today], from which time these things took place. 22 But also certain women from us amazed us, happening at daybreak unto the sepulchre; 23 and not having found his body, they came saying also [2an apparition 3of angels 1to have seen], ones who say him to be living. 24 And [5went forth 1some 2of the ones 3with 4us] unto the sepulchre, and found it so as also the women said; but him they did not see. 25 And he said to them, O unthinking ones and slow in heart to trust upon all which [3spoke 1the 2prophets]. 26 Is it not [5these things 1necessary 4to suffer 2the 3Christ], and to enter into his glory? 27 And beginning from Moses, and from all of the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28 And they approached unto the town where they were going. And he pretended [2farther 1to be going]. 29 And they pressured him, saying, Stay with us, for [2towards 3evening 1it is], and [3has declined 1the 2day]. And he entered to stay with them. 30 And it came to pass in his lying down to eat with them, having taken the bread, he blessed, and having broken gave it over to them. 31 And their [2were opened wide 1eyes], and they recognized him. And he [2invisible 1became] to them. 32 And they said to one another, [2not 3our heart 4burning 1Was] in us as he was speaking to us in the way, and as he opened wide to us the scriptures? 33 And rising up the same hour, they returned into Jerusalem, and they found [3being gathered together 1the 2eleven], and the ones with them, 34 saying that, [3is risen 1The 2Lord] really, and he appeared to Simon. 35 And they described the things in the way, and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread. 36 [4these things 1And 2of their 3speaking], Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and says to them, Peace to you. 37 And being terrified, and [2thrown into fear 1becoming], they thought [2a spirit 1they viewed]. 38 And he said to them, Why are you disturbed? and why do thoughts ascend into your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that [3he 1I 2am]! Handle me and see! for a spirit [3flesh 4and 5bones 1does not 2have], as you view me having. 40 And this having said, he displayed to them his hands and his feet. 41 And yet of their disbelieving from the joy, and marveling, he said to them, Have you anything eatable here? 42 And they gave over to him [3fish 2of a roasted 1part], and some from a bee's honeycomb. 43 And having taken before them, he ate. 44 And he said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while still being with you, that it is necessary to fulfill all the things being written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms, concerning me. 45 Then he opened wide their mind to perceive the scriptures. 46 And he said to them that, Thus it has been written, and thus it is necessary for [3to suffer 1the 2Christ], and to be raised up from the dead in the third day; 47 and [5to be proclaimed 6in 7his name 1repentance 2and 3release 4of sins] unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I send the promise of my father unto you. But you stay in the city of Jerusalem! until of which time you shall be clothed with power of the height. 50 And he led them outside as far as unto Bethany. And having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. 51 And it came to pass in his blessing them, he was parted from them, and was borne into the heaven. 52 And they having done obeisance to him, returned unto Jerusalem with [2joy 1great]. 53 And they were always in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
