Luke 24

And on the first of the Sabbath, at the depth of the dawn, they came to the sepulcher, bearing the aromatics which they had prepared, And they found the stone, having been rolled away from the sepulcher. And coming in they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, while they were at a loss concerning this, and behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: and they being afraid, and turning their face towards the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but He is risen. Remember how He spoke to you, being with you in Galilee, Saying That it behooveth the Son of man to be delivered into the hands of sinners, and to be crucified, and to rise again on the third day. And they remembered His words. And having returned from the sepulcher, they proclaimed all these things to the eleven, and all the rest. 10 And Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James: and the other women with them spoke these things to the apostles. 11 And their words appeared before them like a dream; and they doubted them. 13 And behold, two of them on that day were journeying to a village, distant from Jerusalem sixty furlongs, to which was the name Emmaus: 14 and they were conversing with one another concerning all those things which had transpired. 15 And it came to pass, while they are talking and making inquiry, Jesus Himself also having come nigh, journeyed along with them: 16 and their eyes were held so as not to recognize Him. 17 And He said to them, What speeches are these which you are interchanging to one another, walking along? And they stood still, looking sad. 18 And one, whose name was Cleopas, said to Him, Dost thou only sojourn at Jerusalem and not know the things which have taken place in it in these days? 19 And He said to them, What? And they said to Him, The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet-man mighty in work and word before God and all the people. 20 How the chief priests and our rulers indeed delivered Him up to the condemnation of death, and they crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that He is the one about to redeem Israel: but truly in addition to all these things, this is the third day from which these things took place. 22 But certain women from us truly surprised us, being early at the sepulcher; 23 and not seeing His body, came, saying, they had also seen a vision of angels, who say that He is alive. 24 And certain ones of those with us went away to the sepulcher, and found as the women also said: and they saw Him not. 25 And He said to them, O ye foolish, and slow in heart to believe in all those things which the prophet spoke! 26 Did it not behoove Christ to suffer, and to enter into His glory? 27 And beginning from Moses and all the prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures, the things concerning Himself. 28 And they drew nigh to the village, whither they were going: and He made as though He would go further: 29 and they constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: because it is at the evening, and the day has already declined. And He came in to abide with them. 30 And it came to pass, while He was reclining with them at the table, taking bread, He blessed it, and breaking it, He gave it to them: 31 and their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him; and He vanished from them. 32 And they said to one another, Did not our heart bum within us, while He was talking to us on the way, as He was expounding the Scriptures to us? 33 And rising up the same hour, they returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those with them gathered together, 34 saying, The Lord indeed is risen, and was seen by Simon. 35 And they expounded those things on the way, and bow He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread. 36 And they speaking these things, He stood in their midst, 37 and they being affrighted and filled with fear, thought they saw a spirit. 38 And He said to them, Why are you excited, and why do reasonings arise in your heart? 39 See my hands and my feet, that I am He: feel me; and see, because a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me having. 41 And they still disbelieving from joy, and wondering, He said to them, Have you here any edible? 42 And they gave Him a piece of baked fish: 43 and taking it, He did eat in their presence. 44 And He said to them, These are my words which I spoke to you, being still with you, that it behooves all things which have been written concerning me in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms, to be fulfilled. 45 Then He opened their mind, that they might understand the Scriptures. 46 And He said to them, As it has been written, That Christ must suffer, and rise from the dead on the third day; 47 and repentance unto remission of sins is to be preached in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 And I send the promise of the Father upon you: and you tarry in the city, until you may be endued with power from on high. 50 And He led them out even unto Bethany; and having lifted up His hands, He blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while He was blessing them, He departed from them, and was carried up into heaven. 52 And they returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were constantly in the temple, praising God.
