11Marie stoode without at the sepulchre weepyng: So, as she wepte, she bowed her selfe into the sepulchre, 12And seeth two angels clothed in white, sittyng, the one at the head, & the other at the feete, where the body of Iesus was layde. 13They saye vnto her: Woman, why weepest thou? She saith vnto the: For they haue taken away my Lorde, & I wote not where they haue layde him. 14When she had thus sayde, she turned her selfe backe, and sawe Iesus standyng, and knewe not that it was Iesus. 15Iesus saith vnto her: Woman, why weepest thou? Whom sekest thou? She supposing that he had ben the gardener, saith vnto him: Sir, if thou haue borne him hence, tel me where thou hast layde hym, and I wyll fet hym. 16Iesus sayth vnto her, Marie. She turned her selfe, and sayde vnto hym: Rabboni, which is to say, Maister. 17Iesus saith vnto her: Touche me not, for I am not yet ascended to my father: But go to my brethren, and saye vnto them, I ascende vnto my father and your father, and to my God & your God. 18Marie Magdalene came and tolde the disciples that she had seene ye Lorde, and that he had spoken suche thynges vnto her.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples
(Luke 24:36–49; 1 John 1:1–4)

19The same day at nyght, whiche was the first day of the Sabbothes, when the doores were shut, where the disciples were assembled together for feare of the Iewes, came Iesus and stoode in the myddes, and sayth vnto them, peace be vnto you. 20And when he had so sayde, he shewed vnto them his handes & his syde. Then were the disciples glad, when they sawe the Lorde. 21Then sayde Iesus to them agayne, peace be vnto you: As my father sent me, euen so sende I you also. 22And when he had saide those wordes, he breathed on them, & saith vnto them: Receaue ye the holy ghost. 23Whosoeuers sinnes ye remit, they are remitted vnto them: And whosoeuers sinnes ye retayne, they are retayned.

Jesus Appears to Thomas

24But Thomas, one of the twelue, which is called Didymus, was not with them when Iesus came. 25The other disciples therfore sayde vnto hym, we haue seene the Lorde. But he sayde vnto them: Except I see in his handes the print of the nayles, and put my fynger into the prynt of the nayles, and thruste my hande into his syde, I wyll not beleue.

26And after eyght dayes, againe his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: Then came Iesus, when the doores were shutte, and stoode in the myddes, and sayde, peace be vnto you. 27After that said he to Thomas: Bring thy fynger hyther, and see my handes, & reache hyther thy hande, and thrust it into my syde, and be not faythlesse, but beleuyng. 28Thomas aunswered, and sayde vnto hym: My Lorde, and my God. 29Iesus sayth vnto hym: Thomas, because thou hast seene me, thou hast beleued: Blessed are they that haue not seene, and yet haue beleued.
