The resurrection of the Man-Savior
Discovered by the women
day of the week, at early dawn, 2they 3came
to the tomb, bringing the bspices
which they had prepared.
And they found the astone
rolled away from the tomb;
But when they entered, they did anot
find the body of the Lord Jesus.
And while they stood
perplexed about this, behold, atwo bmen
stood by them in 1cdazzling
And they became afrightened
and bowed their faces to the ground, and the men
said to them, Why are you seeking the bliving
One among the dead?
He is not here but has been 1raised
. Remember how He aspoke
to you while He was still in bGalilee
Saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the athird
day rise up.
And they aremembered
And returning from the tomb, they areported
all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
Now they were aMary
the Magdalene and bJoanna
of James and the rest of the women with them, who told these things to the apostles.
And these words appeared 1to
them as 2nonsense
, and they did not believe them.
Investigated and confirmed by Peter
rose up and ran to the tomb; and stooping to look in, he saw the blinen
cloths alone, and he went away to his own home,
marveling at what had happened.
Appearing to two disciples
And behold, atwo
of them were going on the same day to a village named Emmaus, which was sixty 1stadia
away from Jerusalem.
And they were talking to each other concerning all these things which had occurred.
And while they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself drew near and 1went
But their eyes were akept
from recognizing Him.
And He said to them, What are these words which you are exchanging with one another while you are walking? And they stood still, looking sad.
And one of them,
Cleopas by name, answered and said to Him, Do You alone dwell as a stranger in Jerusalem and not know the things which have taken place in it in these days?
And He said to them, What things? And they 1said
to Him, The things concerning Jesus the aNazarene
, who was a 2bProphet cpowerful
in work and word before God and all the people;
And how the chief priests and our arulers bdelivered
Him up to the csentence
of death and dcrucified
But we were hoping that He was the One who was about to aredeem
Israel. Indeed, besides all these things, it is now
going on the third day since these things took place.
But moreover some awomen
from among us amazed us. Being at the tomb early
finding His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of bangels
, who said that He is cliving
And some of those with us went to the atomb
and found it
even as the women also said, but they did not see Him.
And He said to them, O 1afoolish
and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
Was it not necessary for the Christ to asuffer
these things and 1enter
into His bglory
And beginning from aMoses
and from all the bprophets
, He explained to them clearly in 1all
the things concerning dHimself
And they drew near to the village where they were going, and He acted as though He would go farther.
And they constrained Him, saying, Stay with us, because it is near evening and the day is already gone by. And He went in to astay
And as He reclined at table
with them, He took the loaf and ablessed it,
and having broken it,
He began handing it
And their eyes were 1opened
, and they recognized Him; and 2He
disappeared from them.
And they said to one another, Was not our heart burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was opening to us the aScriptures
And they rose up that very hour and returned to 1Jerusalem
, and they found the aeleven
and those with them assembled together,
Saying, The Lord really has been raised and has aappeared
And they related the things that occurred
on the road, and how He was made aknown
to them in the breaking of the bread.
Appearing to the apostles and those with them and commissioning them
And as they were speaking these things, He Himself stood in their midst and said to them, aPeace
But they were terrified and became afrightened
and thought they beheld a 1spirit
And He said to them, Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your heart?
See My ahands
and My feet, that it
is I Myself. bTouch
Me and see, for a spirit does not have 1flesh
and bones as you behold Me having.
And when He had said this, He ashowed
them His hands and His feet.
And while they still 1did
not believe for ajoy
and were marveling, He said to them, Do you have anything here to beat
And they handed Him a piece of broiled afish
And He took it
And He said to them, These are My words which I aspoke
to you while I was still with you, that all the things written in the 1Law
and the Prophets and Psalms concerning Me must be fulfilled.
Then He 1aopened
their mind to understand the Scriptures;
And He said to them, Thus it is awritten
, that the Christ would bsuffer
and rise up from the dead on the cthird
And that repentance for 1aforgiveness
of sins would be proclaimed in His bname
to all the cnations
, beginning from dJerusalem
You are awitnesses
of these things.
And behold, I send forth the 1apromise
of My Father upon you; but as for you, 2stay
in the city until you 3put
from on chigh
The ascension of the Man-Savior
And He led them out as far as 1aBethany
, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
And while He blessed them, He parted from them and was 1carried
up into aheaven
And they aworshipped
Him and returned to bJerusalem
with great cjoy
And were continually in the atemple
, bblessing 1God
