Luke 24

And on the first day of the week, in the morning, while it was yet dark, they came to the sepulchre, and brought the aromatics they had prepared. And there were other women with them. And they found the stone rolled from the sepulchre. And they entered, and found not the body of Jesus. And as they wondered at this, behold, two men stood opposite them; and their raiment was effulgent. And they were in fear, and bowed their faces to the ground. And the men said to them: Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here; he is risen. Remember how he conversed with you, when he was in Galilee, and said, That the Son of man was to be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and to be crucified, and to rise on the third day. And they remembered his words. And they returned from the sepulchre, and related all these things to the eleven, and to the rest. 10 Now they were Mary Magdalena, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the others with them, who related these things to the Legates. 11 And these words appeared in their eyes as dreams: and they believed them not. 12 But Simon arose, and ran to the sepulchre, and looked in, and saw the linen lying by itself: and he went away wondering in himself at what had occurred. 13 And lo, two of them, on the same day, were going to a village named Emmaus, distant sixty furlongs from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all that had occurred. 15 And as they conversed, and questioned each other, Jesus came, and drew near, and walked with them. 16 And their eyes were held, that they did not recognize him. 17 And he said to them: What are these discourses, which ye hold with each other, as ye walk and are sad? 18 And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered and said to him: Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, that thou knowest not the things that have occurred there in these days? 19 He said to them: What things? They say to him: In regard to Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet, and mighty in discourse and in action, before God, and before all the people. 20 And the chief priests and Elders delivered him up to a sentence of death, and crucified him. 21 But we expected that he was to deliver Israel. And lo, three days have passed, since all these things occurred. 22 And moreover, certain women of ours astonished us; for they went early to the sepulchre; 23 and as they did not find the body, they came and said to us: We saw angels there, and they said that he is alive. 24 And also some of us went to the sepulchre; and they found, as the women reported; but him they saw not. 25 Then Jesus said to them: O deficient in understanding, and slow of heart to believe all the things that the prophets uttered. 26 Were not these things to be; that the Messiah should suffer and that he should enter into his glory? 27 Then he began from Moses, and from all the prophets, and expounded to them concerning himself from all the scriptures. 28 And they drew near to the village to which they were going; and he made them feel, as if he would go to a more distant place. 29 And they urged him, and said to him: Tarry with us, for the day inclineth towards dark. And he went in to remain with them. 30 And it occurred, while he reclined with them, that he took bread, and blessed, and brake, and gave to them. 31 And instantly, their eyes were opened, and, they knew him. And he took himself from them. 32 And they said one to another: Did not our heart burn

within us, while he talked with us by the way, and explained to us the scriptures?
33 And they arose, the same hour, and returned: to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven assembled, and those with them, 34 who were saying: Certainly, our Lord hath risen; and he hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they also related what occurred by the way, and how he became known to them, when he broke bread. 36 And while they were talking of these things, Jesus stood in the midst of them, and said to them: Peace be with you! It is I; be not afraid. 37 And they were in trepidation and fear, for they supposed they saw a spirit. 38 Jesus said to them: Why are ye agitated? And why do imaginations arise in your hearts? 39 Look at my hands and my feet, that it is myself. Handle me, and know; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40 And as he said thus, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still believed not, for their joy, and were astonished; he said to them: Have ye here any thing to eat? 42 And they gave him a piece of broiled fish, and of honeycomb. 43 And he took, and ate before them. 44 And he said to them: These are the things which I said to you while I was with you, That all things written of me, in the law of Moses and in the prophets and in the psalms, must be fulfilled. 45 Then he opened their mind to understand the scriptures. 46 And he said to them: Thus it is written, and thus it was right for Messiah to suffer, and rise from the dead on the third day; 47 and that, in his name, repentance for the remission of sins should be preached among all nations, and that the commencement be at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are the witnesses of these things. 49 And I will send upon you the promise of my Father. But remain ye at Jerusalem until ye shall be clothed with energy from on high. 50 And he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifted his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it occurred, while he blessed them, that he was separated from them, and ascended to heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen. Completion of the holy Gospel of Luke the Evangelist.
