1Mary Magdalene, seeing the stone taken away from the sepulchre, runneth to tell Peter and John, who go thither, and find not the body. 11Mary seeth two angels sitting in the sepulchre; Jesus himself appeareth to her. 19He appeareth to his disciples: 24the incredulity of Thomas. 26Jesus appeareth again to the disciples, and satisfieth the doubts of Thomas; who confesseth him. 30The sufficiency of what is written for a ground of faith unto salvation.

aTHE first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

2

Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the bother disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, cThey have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

c v.9.13,15. Lu. 24.10.
3

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

d Lu. 24.12,24. v.6,10,11.
4

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

5

And he stooping down, and looking in, fsaw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

6

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

g ch. 18.15-27; 21.7. Mat. 16.15,16. ch. 6.67-69.
7

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

8

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

9

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

10

iThen the disciples went away again unto their own home.

11

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

j v.1,2.
12

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

13

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

14

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

l v.15,16. Mar. 16.9. Mat. 28.9. Ca. 3.3,4. ch. 21.4. Mar. 16.12. Lu. 24.16,31.
15

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, mand I will take him away.

m Ca. 3.2.
16

Jesus saith unto her, nMary. oShe turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, pMaster.

17

Jesus saith unto her, qTouch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to rmy brethren, and say unto them, sI ascend unto my Father, tand your Father; and to umy God, and vyour God.

18

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

19

xThen 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, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, yPeace be unto you.

20

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

21

Then said Jesus to them again, bPeace be unto you: cas my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

b ch. 14.27.
22

And when he had said this, dhe breathed on them, and saith unto them, eReceive ye the Holy *Ghost:

d Ge. 2.7.
23

fWhose soever sins ye *remit, they are *remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

24

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

25

The other disciples therefore said unto him, hWe have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, iExcept I shall see jin 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.

h ch. 1.41,45. v.2,13,18. ch. 21.7.
i Ps. 78.8-41. Lu. 24.39. v.20. Job 9.16. Lu. 24.25.
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, kPeace be unto you.

27

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

l Ps. 103.13,14. 1Jn. 1.1,2. v.25.
28

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

29

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

30

pAnd many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:

p ch. 21.25.
31

qBut these are written, that ye might rbelieve that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that sbelieving ye might have life tthrough his name.
