John 20

And the first day of the week, in the morning, while it was yet dark, Mary Magdalena came to the sepulchre: and she saw that the stone was removed from the grave. And she ran, and came to Simon Cephas, and to that other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them: They have taken away our Lord from the sepulchre, and I know not where they have laid him. And Simon set out, and the other disciple, and they were going to the sepulchre. And they both ran together; but that disciple outran Simon, and came first to the sepulchre. And he looked in, and saw the linen cloths lying: but he did not go in. And after him came Simon; and he entered the sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths lying; and the napkin, that had been wrapped about his head, was not with the linen cloths, but was folded up, and laid in a place by itself. Then entered also the disciple who came first to the sepulchre; and he saw, and believed. For they had not yet learned from the scriptures, that he was to arise from the dead. 10 And those disciples went away again to their place. 11 But Mary remained standing at the sepulchre, and weeping; and as she wept, she looked into the sepulchre 12 and saw two angels in white, who were sitting, one at the pillows and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus was laid. 13 And they said to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She said to them: Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him 14 Having said this, she turned round, and saw Jesus standing, but did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her: Woman, why weepest thou? and, whom dost thou seek? And she supposed that he was the gardener: and she said to him: My lord, if thou hast borne him away, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will go and take him away. 16 Jesus said to her: Mary! And she turned, and said to him in Hebrew: Rabbuni; which is interpreted Teacher. 17 Jesus said to her: Touch me not; for not yet have I ascended to my Father. But go to my brethren, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God. 18 Then came Mary Magdalena, and told the disciples that she had seen our Lord; and that he had said these things to her. 19 And on the evening of that first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst of them, and said to them: Peace be with you. 20 Having said this, he showed them his hands and his side. And the disciples rejoiced, when they saw our Lord. 21 And Jesus said to them; Peace be with you. As my Father hath sent me, I also send you. 22 And as he said these things, he breathed on them, and said to them: Receive ye the Holy Spirit. 23 If ye shall remit sins to any one, they will be remitted to him; and if ye shall retain those of any one, they will be retained. 24 But Thomas, who was called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not there with them, when Jesus came. 25 And the disciples said to him: We have seen our Lord. But he said to them: Unless I see in his hands the places of the nails, and put my fingers into them, and extend my hand to his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days, the disciples were again within, and Thomas with them: and Jesus came, while the doors were closed, stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be with you. 27 And he said to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger, and look at my hands; and reach out thy hand and extend it to my side: and be not incredulous, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God! 29 Jesus said to him: Now, when thou hast seen me, thou believest: blessed are they, who have not seen me, yet believe. 30 And many other signs did Jesus before his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God; and that when ye believe, ye may have life eternal by his name.
