20:1 The 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.
20:2 Then 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.
20:3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and
came to the sepulcher.
20:4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple outran
Peter, and came first to the sepulcher.
20:5 And he stooping down, saw the linen cloths lying; yet he
went not in.
20:6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the
sepulcher, and seeth the linen cloths lying;
20:7 And the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the
linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
20:8 Then went in also that other disciple who came first to the
sepulcher, and he saw, and believed.
20:9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise
again from the dead.
20:10 Then the disciples went away again to their own home.
20:11 But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as
she wept she stooped down [to look] into the sepulcher,
20:12 And seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the
head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had
20:13 And 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.
20:14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and
saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
20:15 Jesus 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.
20:16 Jesus saith to her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith to
him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master.
20:17 Jesus 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
20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had
seen the Lord, and [that] he had spoken these things to her.
20:19 Then 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.
20:20 And when he had so said, he showed to them [his] hands and
his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.
20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace [be] to you: as [my]
Father hath sent me, even so I send you.
20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and
saith to them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit.
20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them;
[and] whose soever [sins] ye retain, they are retained.
20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not
with them when Jesus came.
20:25 The 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.
20:26 And 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.
20:27 Then 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.
20:28 And Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God.
20:29 Jesus saith to him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me,
thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and
[yet] have believed.
20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of
his disciples, which are not written in this book.
20:31 But 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.
