Luke 24

The Resurrection

a But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of b the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold c two men suddenly d stood near them in dazzling clothing; and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He e has
Or been raised
risen. Remember how He spoke to you g while He was still in Galilee,
saying that h the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” And i they remembered His words, and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now they were j Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to k the apostles. 11 But these words appeared
Lit in their sight
to them as nonsense, and they m would not believe them.
12 But Peter got up and n ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings
Or by themselves
only; and he went away p to his home, marveling at what had happened.

The Road to Emmaus

13 And behold q two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was
Lit 60 stadia; one stadion was about 600 ft
about seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. 15 While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them. 16 But s their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. 17 And He said to them, What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, “Are You
Or visiting Jerusalem alone
the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?”
19 And He said to them, What things?” And they said to Him, “The things about u Jesus the Nazarene, who was a v prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our w rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to x redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened. 22 But also some women among us amazed us. y When they were at the tomb early in the morning, 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said that He was alive. 24 Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see.” 25 And He said to them, O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that z the prophets have spoken! 26  aa Was it not necessary for the
I.e. Messiah
Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?”
27 Then beginning
Lit from
with ad Moses and
Lit from
with all the af prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.

28 And they approached the village where they were going, and ag He acted as though He were going farther. 29 But they urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day
Lit has now declined
is now nearly over.” So He went in to stay with them.
30 When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and ai blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. 31 Then their aj eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from
Lit them
their sight.
32 They said to one another
Lit Was not our heart
Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He am was
Lit opening
explaining the Scriptures to us?”
33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and ao found gathered together the eleven and ap those who were with them, 34 saying aq The Lord has really risen and ar has appeared to Simon.” 35 They began to relate
Lit the things
their experiences on the road and how at He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.

Other Appearances

36 While they were telling these things au He Himself stood in their midst and said to them, Peace be to you.” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing av a spirit. 38 And He said to them, Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your
Lit heart
39  ax See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; ay touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 While they still
Lit were disbelieving
ba could not believe it because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, bb Have you anything here to eat?”
42 They gave Him a piece of a broiled fish; 43 and He took it and bc ate it before them.

44 Now He said to them, bd These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the be Law of Moses and the Prophets and bf the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then He bg opened their
Lit mind
minds to understand the Scriptures,
46 and He said to them, bi Thus it is written, that the
I.e. Messiah
Christ would suffer and bk rise again from the dead the third day,
47 and that bl repentance
Later mss read and forgiveness
for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed
Or on the basis of
in His name to bo all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 “You are bp witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, bq I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but br you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

The Ascension

50 And He led them out as far as bs Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. 51 While He was blessing them, He parted from them and was carried up into heaven. 52 And they, after worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple

praising God.
