upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had
prepared, and certain others with them.
they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto
them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be
crucified, and the third day rise again.
they remembered his words,
9And returned from
the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
10It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them,
which told these things unto the apostles.
their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
12Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid
by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem
about threescore furlongs.
14And they talked
together of all these things which had happened.
it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one
to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known
the things which are come to pass there in these days?
he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and
word before God and all the people:
how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside
all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen
a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow
of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things
28And they drew nigh unto
the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.
And he went in to tarry with them.
came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32And they said one to another, Did not our
heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven
gathered together, and them that were with them,
The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto
them, Peace be unto you.
37But they were terrified
and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh
and bones, as ye see me have.
40And when he
had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
43And he took it, and did eat before them.
44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was
yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
45Then opened he their understanding,
that they might understand the scriptures,
said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among
all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
ye are witnesses of these things.
I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
50And he led them out as far as to Bethany,
and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
52And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
53And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
