20Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.G1161G3391G4521G2064G3137G3094G4404G5607G2089G4653G1519G3419G2532G991G3037G142G1537G3419 2She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, "They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!"G3767G5143G2532G2064G4314G4613G4074G2532G4314G243G3101G3739G2424G5368G2532G3004G846G142G2962G1537G3419G2532G1492G3756G4226G5087G846 3Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb.G4074G3767G1831G2532G243G3101G2532G2064G1519G3419 4They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.G1161G5143G1417G3674G2532G243G3101G4390G5032G4074G2532G2064G4413G1519G3419 5He stooped and looked in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he didn't go in.G2532G3879G991G3608G2749G3305G1525G3756G1525 6Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there,G3767G2064G4613G4074G190G846G2532G1525G1519G3419G2532G2334G3608G2749 7while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings.G2532G4676G3739G2258G1909G846G2776G3756G2749G3326G3608G235G1794G1519G5117G1520G5565 8Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed—G5119G3767G1525G2532G243G3101G3588G2064G4413G1519G3419G2532G1492G2532G4100 9for until then they still hadn't understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead.G1063G3764G1492G3764G1124G3754G846G1163G450G1537G3498 10Then they went home.G3767G3101G565G3825G4314G1438 11Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in.G1161G3137G2476G1854G4314G3419G2799G3767G5613G2799G3879G1519G3419 12She saw two white-robed angels, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying.G2532G2334G1417G32G1722G3022G2516G1520G4314G2776G2532G1520G4314G4228G3699G4983G2424G2749 13"Dear woman, why are you crying?" the angels asked her. "Because they have taken away my Lord," she replied, "and I don't know where they have put him."G2532G1565G3004G846G1135G5101G2799G3004G846G3754G142G3450G2962G2532G1492G3756G4226G5087G846 14She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn't recognize him.G2532G2036G5023G2036G4762G1519G3694G2532G2334G2424G2476G2532G1492G3756G3754G2076G2424 15"Dear woman, why are you crying?" Jesus asked her. "Who are you looking for?" She thought he was the gardener. "Sir," she said, "if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him."G2424G3004G846G1135G5101G2799G5101G2212G1565G1380G3754G2076G2780G3004G846G2962G1487G4771G941G846G941G2036G3427G4226G5087G846G2504G142G846G142 16"Mary!" Jesus said. She turned to him and cried out, "Rabboni!" (which is Hebrew for "Teacher").G2424G3004G846G3137G1565G4762G3004G846G4462G3739G3004G1320 17"Don't cling to me," Jesus said, "for I haven't yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, `I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'"G2424G3004G846G680G3450G3361G1063G305G3768G305G4314G3450G3962G1161G4198G4314G3450G80G2532G2036G846G305G4314G3450G3962G2532G5216G3962G2532G3450G2316G2532G5216G2316 18Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, "I have seen the Lord!" Then she gave them his message.G3137G3094G2064G518G3101G3754G3708G2962G2532G2036G5023G846 19That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! "Peace be with you," he said.G3767G1565G2250G3798G5607G3391G4521G2532G2374G2808G3699G3101G2258G4863G1223G5401G2453G2064G2424G2532G2476G1519G3319G2532G3004G846G1515G5213 20As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord!G2532G2036G5124G2036G1166G846G5495G2532G846G4125G3767G5463G3101G5463G1492G2962 21Again he said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you."G3767G2036G2424G846G3825G1515G5213G2531G3962G649G3165G2504G3992G2504G5209 22Then he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.G2532G2036G5124G1720G2532G3004G846G2983G40G4151 23If you forgive anyone's sins, they are forgiven. If you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."G5100G302G266G863G863G846G5100G302G2902G2902 24One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came.G1161G2381G1520G1537G1427G3004G1324G2258G3756G3326G846G3753G2424G2064 25They told him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he replied, "I won't believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side."G243G3101G3767G3004G846G3708G2962G1161G2036G846G3362G1492G1722G846G5495G5179G2247G2532G906G3450G1147G1519G5179G2247G2532G906G3450G5495G1519G846G4125G4100G3364G4100 26Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. "Peace be with you," he said.G2532G3326G3638G2250G3825G846G3101G2258G2080G2532G2381G3326G846G2064G2424G2374G2808G2532G2476G1519G3319G2532G2036G1515G5213 27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don't be faithless any longer. Believe!"G1534G3004G2381G5342G5602G4675G1147G2532G1492G3450G5495G2532G5342G4675G5495G2532G906G1519G3450G4125G2532G1096G3361G571G235G4103 28"My Lord and my God!" Thomas exclaimed.G2532G2381G611G2532G2036G846G3450G2962G2532G3450G2316 29Then Jesus told him, "You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me."G2424G3004G846G2381G3754G3708G3165G4100G3107G3361G1492G2532G4100 30The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book.G2532G4183G243G4592G3303G3767G4160G2424G1799G846G3101G3739G2076G3756G1125G1722G5129G975 31But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.G1161G5023G1125G2443G4100G3754G2424G2076G5547G5207G2316G2532G2443G4100G2192G2222G1722G846G3686
