John 20 ©

1 Mary Magdalene goes to the grave, which she finds empty, and tells this to Peter and John. 3 Who both run to the grave and find it so. 11 Mary sees two angels in the grave. 14 Christ appears to her Himself, by Whose command she declares His resurrection to the disciples. 19 To whom Christ also appears Himself at evening. 21 And gives them the Holy Ghost, and power to forgive sins, and to retain them. 24 Thomas, having not been with them, will not believe. 26 Until eight days later he sees Christ himself and confesses Him. 30 John declares why, out of many other, these signs are written.


THE1 firstaday of the week cometh 2Mary Magdalene 3early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth 4the stone taken away from the sepulchre.


Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whomb Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have 5taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and 6we know not where they have laid him.


Peterc therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.


So they ran both together: and the other disciple did 7outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.


And he stooping down, and looking in, saw thed8linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.


Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,


And thee napkin,f that was about his 9head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.


Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and 10believed.


For as yet they 11knew not theg scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.


Then the disciples went away again 12unto their own home.


¶Buth13Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,


And seeth 14two angels in white sitting, the one at 15the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.


And 16they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto 17them, Because they have taken away 18my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.


Andi when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and 19knew not that it was Jesus.


Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will 20take him away.


Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She 21turned herself, and saith unto him, 22Rabboni; which is to say, Master.


Jesus saith unto her, 23Touch me not; 24for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go toj my 25brethren, and say unto them, 26Ik ascend unto 27my Father, and 28your Father; and to 29my God, and 30your God.


Mary Magdalenel came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.


¶Thenm the same day at evening, being 31the first day 32of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, 33came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, 34Peace be unto you.


And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his 35hands and his side. Then were then disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.


Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: asomy Father hath sent me, even so 36send I you.


And when he had said this, he 37breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye 38the Holy Ghost:


Whosep soever sins ye 39remit, they are 40remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.


¶But Thomas, one of the twelve, called 41Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.


The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see 42in his hands 43the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will 44not believe.


¶And after 45eight days again his disciples were 46within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.


Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; andq reach hither thy hand, and 47thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.


And Thomas answered and said 48unto him, My Lord and my God.


Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: 49blessedrare they that have not seen, and yet have believed.


¶And manys other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in 50this book:


But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have 51life 52through his name.
