24But very early on Sunday morningc the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.G1161G3391G4521G3722G901G2064G1909G3418G5342G759G3739G2090G2532G5100G4862G8462They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.G1161G2147G3037G617G575G34193So they went in, but they didn't find the body of the Lord Jesus.G2532G1525G2147G3756G4983G2962G24244As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.G2532G1096G1722G846G1280G4012G5127G2532G2400G1417G435G2186G846G1722G797G20675The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?G1161G1096G846G1096G1719G2532G2827G4383G1519G1093G2036G4314G846G5101G2212G2198G3326G34986He isn't here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee,G2076G3756G5602G235G1453G3415G5613G2980G5213G5607G2089G1722G10567that the Son of Manc must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day."G3004G3754G5207G444G1163G3860G1519G5495G268G444G2532G4717G2532G5154G2250G4508Then they remembered that he had said this.G2532G3415G846G44879So they rushed back from the tomb to tell his eleven disciples—and everyone else—what had happened.G2532G5290G575G3419G518G3956G5023G1733G2532G3956G306210It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and several other women who told the apostles what had happened.G1161G2258G3137G3094G2532G2489G2532G3137G2385G2532G3062G4862G846G3739G3004G5023G4314G65211But the story sounded like nonsense to the men, so they didn't believe it.G2532G846G4487G5316G1799G846G5616G3026G2532G569G846G56912However, Peter jumped up and ran to the tomb to look. Stooping, he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings; then he went home again, wondering what had happened.G1161G450G4074G5143G1909G3419G2532G3879G991G3608G2749G3441G2532G565G2296G4314G1438G109613That same day two of Jesus' followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven milesc from Jerusalem.G2532G2400G1417G1537G846G2258G4198G1722G846G2250G1519G2968G3739G3686G1695G568G575G2419G1835G471214As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened.G2532G846G3656G4314G240G4012G3956G5130G481915As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them.G2532G1096G1722G846G3656G2532G4802G2424G2532G846G1448G4848G84616But God kept them from recognizing him.G1161G846G3788G2902G1921G3361G1921G84617He asked them, "What are you discussing so intently as you walk along?" They stopped short, sadness written across their faces.G1161G2036G4314G846G5101G3056G3778G3739G474G4314G240G4043G2532G2075G465918Then one of them, Cleopas, replied, "You must be the only person in Jerusalem who hasn't heard about all the things that have happened there the last few days."G1161G1520G3739G3686G2810G611G2036G4314G846G4771G3441G3939G1722G2419G2532G1097G3756G1097G1096G1722G846G1722G5025G225019"What things?" Jesus asked. "The things that happened to Jesus, the man from Nazareth," they said. "He was a prophet who did powerful miracles, and he was a mighty teacher in the eyes of God and all the people.G2532G2036G846G4169G1161G2036G846G4012G2424G3480G3739G1096G4396G1415G1722G435G2041G2532G3056G1726G2316G2532G3956G299220But our leading priests and other religious leaders handed him over to be condemned to death, and they crucified him.G3704G5037G749G2532G2257G758G3860G846G1519G2917G2288G2532G4717G84621We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel. This all happened three days ago.G1161G2249G1679G3754G2076G846G3195G3084G2474G235G1065G4862G3956G5125G4594G71G5026G5154G2250G575G3739G5023G109622"Then some women from our group of his followers were at his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report.G235G5100G1135G2532G1537G2257G1839G2248G1839G1096G3721G1909G341923They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive!G2532G2147G3361G846G4983G2064G3004G3708G2532G3708G3701G32G3739G3004G846G219824Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, his body was gone, just as the women had said."G2532G5100G4862G2254G565G1909G3419G2532G2147G2532G3779G2531G1135G2036G1161G846G1492G375625Then Jesus said to them, "You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures.G2532G846G2036G4314G846G5599G453G2532G1021G2588G4100G1909G3956G3739G4396G298026Wasn't it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?"G1163G3780G5547G3958G5023G2532G1525G1519G846G139127Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.G2532G756G575G3475G2532G575G3956G4396G1329G846G1722G3956G1124G4012G143828By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus acted as if he were going on,G2532G1448G1519G2968G3757G4198G2532G846G4364G4198G420829but they begged him, "Stay the night with us, since it is getting late." So he went home with them.G2532G3849G846G3004G3306G3326G2257G3754G2076G4314G2073G2532G2250G2827G2532G1525G3306G4862G84630As they sat down to eatc, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them.G2532G1096G1722G846G2625G3326G846G2983G740G2127G2532G2806G1929G84631Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared!G1161G846G3788G1272G2532G1921G846G2532G846G1096G855G575G84632They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?"G2532G2036G4314G240G2258G3780G2257G2588G2545G1722G2254G5613G2980G2254G1722G3598G2532G5613G1272G2254G112433And within the hour they were on their way back to Jerusalem. There they found the eleven disciples and the others who had gathered with them,G2532G450G846G5610G5290G1519G2419G2532G2147G1733G4867G2532G4862G84634who said, "The Lord has really risen! He appeared to Peterc."G3004G3754G2962G1453G3689G2532G3700G461335Then the two from Emmaus told their story of how Jesus had appeared to them as they were walking along the road, and how they had recognized him as he was breaking the bread.G2532G846G1834G1722G3598G2532G5613G1097G846G1722G2800G74036And just as they were telling about it, Jesus himself was suddenly standing there among them. "Peace be with you," he said.G1161G846G5023G2980G2424G846G2476G1722G3319G846G2532G3004G846G1515G521337But the whole group was startled and frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost!G1161G4422G2532G1719G1096G1380G2334G415138"Why are you frightened?" he asked. "Why are your hearts filled with doubt?G2532G2036G846G5101G2075G5015G2532G1302G1261G305G1722G5216G258839Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it's really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don't have bodies, as you see that I do."G1492G3450G5495G2532G3450G4228G3754G1510G1473G846G5584G3165G2532G1492G3754G4151G2192G3756G4561G2532G3747G2531G2334G1691G219240As he spoke, he showed them his hands and his feet.G2532G5124G2036G1925G846G5495G2532G422841Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, "Do you have anything here to eat?"G1161G846G2089G569G575G5479G2532G2296G2036G846G2192G1759G5100G103442They gave him a piece of broiled fish,G1161G1929G846G3313G3702G2486G2532G575G3193G278143and he ate it as they watched.G2532G2983G5315G1799G84644Then he said, "When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled."G1161G2036G846G3778G3056G3739G2980G4314G5209G5607G2089G4862G5213G3754G3956G1163G4137G3588G1125G1722G3551G3475G2532G4396G2532G5568G4012G170045Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.G5119G1272G846G3563G4920G112446And he said, "Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day.G2532G2036G846G3754G3779G1125G2532G3779G1163G5547G3958G2532G450G1537G3498G5154G225047It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nationsc, beginning in Jerusalem: 'There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.'G2532G3341G2532G859G266G2784G1909G846G3686G1519G3956G1484G756G575G241948You are witnesses of all these things.G1161G5210G2075G3144G513049"And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven."G2532G2400G1473G649G1860G3450G3962G1909G5209G1161G2523G5210G1722G4172G2419G2193G3739G1746G1411G1537G531150Then Jesus led them to Bethany, and lifting his hands to heaven, he blessed them.G1161G1806G846G1854G2193G1519G963G2532G1869G846G5495G2127G84651While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up to heavenc.G2532G1096G1722G846G2127G846G1339G575G846G2532G399G1519G377252So they worshiped him and then returned to Jerusalem filled with great joy.G2532G846G4352G846G5290G1519G2419G3326G3173G547953And they spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God.G2532G2258G1275G1722G2411G134G2532G2127G2316G281
