John 20

On the first of the Sabbaths Mary Magdalene comes to the sepulcher early in the morning, it being yet dark, and sees the stone having been rolled from the sepulcher. Then she runs, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and says to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have placed Him. Then Peter and the other disciple came out, and they were coming to the sepulcher. And the two were running simultaneously: and the other disciple was running before more rapidly than Peter, and came first to the sepulcher. John looking in sees the grave-clothes lying; and did not come in. Then Simon Peter, following him, he came into the sepulcher; and sees the grave-clothes lying, and the napkin, which was on His head, not lying with the grave-clothes, but separate in one place, having been rolled up. Then the other disciple also came in, the one having come first to the sepulcher, and saw, and believed; for they did not yet understand the Scripture, That it behooved Him to rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples departed again to their own comrades. 11 And Mary was standing at the sepulcher without, weeping: then while she was weeping, she looked into the sepulcher; 12 and sees two angels sitting in white robes, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus lay. 13 They say to her, Woman, why do you weep? She says to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have placed Him. 14 Saying these words, she turned backward, and sees Jesus standing, and did not know that He is Jesus. 15 Jesus says to her, Woman, why are you weeping? whom are you seeking? She, thinking that He is the gardener, says to Him, Sir, if you have taken Him away, tell me where you have placed Him, and I will take Him. 16 Jesus says to her, Mary: she turning, says to Him in Hebrew, Rabboni, which is called Teacher. 17 Jesus says to her, Cling not to me; for I have not ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and tell them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene comes proclaiming to the disciples, I have seen the Lord; and He spoke these things to her. 19 Then it being evening, on that day, on the first day of the week, and the doors being shut where the disciples were assembled, on account of the fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and says to them, Peace be unto you. 20 And saying this, He shewed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples rejoiced, seeing the Lord. 21 And Jesus said to them again, Peace be unto you: as the Father hath sent me, I also send you. 22 And saying this, He breathed on them, and says to them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost. 23 Whose sins you may remit, are remitted unto them; whose sins you may retain, have been retained. 24 And Thomas, one of the twelve, the one called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 Then the other disciples said to him, We have seen the Lord. And he said to them, Unless I may see the print of the nails in His hand, and thrust my finger into the place of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days His disciples were again within, and Thomas was with them. Jesus comes, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then He says to Thomas, Bring hither your finger, and see my hands, and bring your hand, and cast it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 Thomas responded and said to Him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus says to him, Because you have seen me, you have believed: happy are those not seeing, and believing. 30 Indeed then Jesus also did many other miracles in the presence of His disciples, which have not been written in this book; 31 and these have been written in order that you may believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; and in order that believing you may have life through His name.
