(Psalm 16:1-11; Psalm 49:1-20; Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12)
1The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, to the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher. 2Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him. 3Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher. 4So they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulcher. 5And he stooping down, saw the linen cloths lying; yet he went not in. 6Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher, and seeth the linen cloths lying; 7And the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8Then went in also that other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, and he saw, and believed. 9For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
10Then the disciples went away again to their own home.
11But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as she wept she stooped down to look into the sepulcher, 12And seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13And they say to her, Woman, why weepest thou? she saith to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14And when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15Jesus saith to her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith to him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16Jesus saith to her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith to him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master. 17Jesus saith to her, Touch me not: for I have not yet 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. 18Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things to her.
Jesus Appears to the Disciples
19Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, Peace be to you. 20And when he had so said, he showed to them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. 21Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be to you: as my Father hath sent me, even so I send you. 22And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith to them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit. 23Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
Jesus Appears to Thomas
24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25The other disciples therefore said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be to you. 27Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28And Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God. 29Jesus saith to him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
The Purpose of John's Book
30And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31But these 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.
