The Resurrection
(Matthew 28:1–10; Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–12)

1Now on the first day of the sabbaths Mary Magdelene comes early in the morning while it was yet dark to the tomb, and sees the stone taken out of the tomb. 2She runs, therefore, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, "They took away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they laid Him!" 3Peter, therefore, went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb. 4And the two were running together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb; 5and, having stooped to look within, he beholds the linen cloths lying; yet he went not within. 6Simon Peter, therefore, also comes, following him, and he went into the tomb; and beholds the linen cloths lying, 7and the napkin that was on His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. 8Then went in, therefore, the other disciple also, who came first to the tomb; and he saw, and believed; 9for as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise from the dead.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
(Mark 16:9–11)

10The disciples, therefore, went away again to their own home.

11But Mary was standing without by the tomb, weeping. So, as she was weeping, she stooped to look into the tomb; 12and she beholds two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13And they say to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She says to them, "Because they took away my Lord, and I know not where they laid Him!" 14Having said these things, she turned back, and beholds Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15Jesus saith to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, says to Him, "Sir, if thou didst bear Him away, tell me where thou didst lay Him, and I will take Him away!" 16Jesus saith to her, "Mary!" Turning, she says to Him, in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, Teacher). 17Jesus saith to her, "Touch Me not; for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, "I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God." 18Mary Magdalene comes, proclaiming to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He spake these things to her.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples
(Luke 24:36–49; 1 John 1:1–4)

19When, therefore, it was evening, on that day, the first day of sabbaths; and, when, through fear of the Jews, the doors were shut, where the disciples were; Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, "Peace be to you!" 20And, having said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples, therefore, rejoiced, when they saw the Lord. 21Jesus, therefore, said to them again, "Peace be to you! As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you." 22And, having said this, He breathed upon them, and said to them, "Receive ye the Holy Spirit. 23Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them; whosesoever sins ye retain, they are retained."

Jesus Appears to Thomas

24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25The other disciples, therefore, said to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and press my hand into His side, I will not believe."

26And, after eight days, again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be to you!" 27Then He saith to Thomas, "Reach hither your finger, and see My hands; and reach hither your hand, and press it into My side; and be not faithless, but believing." 28Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" 29Jesus saith to him, "Because you have seen Me, you believe: happy are those who did not see, and yet believed."

The Purpose of John’s Book

30Many other signs, therefore, did Jesus in the presence of the disciples, which have not been written in this book; 31but these have been written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, ye may have life in His name.
