John 20

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene cometh early in the morning, while it was yet dark, to the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. She therefore runneth and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid Him. Peter therefore went out, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they both ran together, but the other disciple out-ran Peter, and came first to the sepulchre: and stooping down to look in saw the linen cloths lying; but did not go in. Then cometh Simon Peter, who followed him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen cloths lying there; and the napkin that was upon his head, not laid with the linen cloths, but folded up by itself. Then went in also the other disciple; who came first to the sepulchre, and he saw and believed. For they did not before understand the scripture, that He must rise from the dead. 10 So the two disciples went away again to their own company. 11 But Mary stood without near the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept she stooped down to look into the sepulchre; and there seeth two angels in white sitting, 12 one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 And they said to her, Woman, why dost thou weep? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. 14 And having said this, she turned back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Then said Jesus to her, Woman, why dost thou weep? whom dost thou seek? She thinking that it was the gardener, saith to Him, Sir, if thou hast carried Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary: and she turned herself and said unto Him, Rabboni, that is to say, Master. 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not now; for I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go directly to my brethren, and tell them, "I am to ascend to my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God." 18 So Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples, that she had seen the Lord, and that He had said these things to her. 19 Now the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, and the doors where the disciples were being shut, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be to you. 20 And when He had said this, He shewed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 21 Then said Jesus unto them again, Peace be to you. As my Father sent me, even so send I you. 22 And when He said this, He breathed upon them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the holy Spirit: 23 and whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; but whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. 24 But Thomas called Didymus, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore told him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days his disciples were again within, and Thomas with them: and Jesus came (the doors being shut as before) and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be to you. 27 Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands, and reach hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not incredulous, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered, and said, "My Lord and my God." 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. 30 And indeed Jesus wrought many other signs also in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31 but these things are written, that ye may believe, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life through his name.
