Luke 24

1And on the first day of the week, very early morning, they came to the sepulcher bringing the spices that they prepared, and some women with them. 2And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. 3And having entered in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4And it came to pass while they were bewildered about this, that behold, two men stood near them in shining apparel. 5And since they became frightened and bowing down their face to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6He is not here, but was raised. Remember how he spoke to you when he was still in Galilee, 7saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day to rise. 8And they remembered his sayings. 9And having returned from the sepulcher, they reported all these things to the eleven, and to all the others. 10Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles. 11And their sayings appeared before them as idle talk, and they disbelieved them. 12But having risen, Peter ran to the sepulcher. And having stooped down, he sees the linen cloths laying alone. And he departed, wondering to himself at that which happened. 13And behold, two of them were going the same day to a village that was sixty furlongs away from Jerusalem, which name was Emmaus. 14And they conversed with each other about all these things that happened. 15And it came to pass, while they conversed and discussed, that Jesus himself also having approached, went along with them. 16But their eyes were held, not to recognize him. 17And he said to them, What are these words that ye toss back to each other, while walking and are looking sad. 18And one, whose name was Cleopas, having answered, said to him, Thou only visit Jerusalem and do not know the things that happened in it during these days? 19And he said to them, What? And they said to him, The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who became a prophet, a mighty man in work and word before God and all the people, 20and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up for condemnation of death, and crucified him. 21But we hoped that he is the man who is going to redeem Israel. But even with all these things, it brings this third day today from which time these things happened. 22But also some of our women astonished us, having come to be at the sepulcher early morning. 23And not having found his body, they came, saying also to have seen a vision of agents who say he is alive. 24And some of those with us went to the sepulcher, and found it this way, just as also the women said, but they did not see him. 25And he said to them, O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets spoke. 26Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things, and to enter into his glory? 27And having begun from Moses and from all the prophets, he expounded to them in all the scriptures the things about himself. 28And they came near to the village where they were going, and he pretended to go further. 29And they constrained him, saying, Remain with us, because it is toward evening, and the day has declined. And he went in to remain with them. 30And it came to pass during his dining with them, that, having taken the bread, he blessed, and having broken in pieces he gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he became invisible from them. 32And they said to each other, Was not our heart burning within us while he spoke to us on the way, while he opened to us the scriptures? 33And having risen up the same hour, they returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven gathered together, 34and those who were with them who said, The Lord really was raised, and was seen by Simon. 35And they reported the things on the road, and how he was made known to them during the breaking of the bread. 36And as they spoke these things, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and says to them, Peace to you. 37But having been startled, and having become frightened, they presumed to see a spirit. 38And he said to them, Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as ye see me having. 40And having said this, he displayed to them his hands and feet. 41And while they still disbelieved from joy and wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything to eat here? 42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish and from a bees honeycomb. 43And having taken it, he ate before them. 44And he said to them, These are the words that I spoke to you while still being with you, that it is necessary for all things that are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms about me to be fulfilled. 45Then he opened their mind to understand the scriptures. 46And he said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day, 47and to proclaim in his name repentance and remission of sins for all the nations, having begun from Jerusalem. 48And ye are witnesses of these things. 49And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you. But stay ye in the city until ye are clothed with power from on high. 50And he led them outside as far as to Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. 51And it came to pass while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was brought up into heaven. 52And having worshiping him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53and they were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Truly.
