The Resurrection
(Matthew 28:1–10; Mark 16:1–8; John 20:1–9)

1And on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared; (and some others with them:) and found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre: 2so they went in, 3but found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4And while they were in perplexity about it, behold, two men stood by them in shining robes. 5And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the ground, the men said unto them, Why do ye seek the living among the dead? 6He is not here, He is risen: remember how He spake to you, when He was yet in Galilee, 7saying, the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of wicked men, and be crucified; and the third day rise again. 8And they remembered his words, 9and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things to the eleven apostles, and to all the rest. 10Now it was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, that told these things to the apostles: 11and their words appeared to them as an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12But Peter arose and ran to the sepulchre; and stooping down he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves: and he went away, wondering in himself at what had happened.

The Road to Emmaus
(Mark 16:12–13)

13And behold two of them were going that day to a village about threescore furlongs from Jerusalem, called Emmaus. 14And they were conversing together about all these things which had happened. 15And while they were discoursing and reasoning together, Jesus himself drew near and went along with them. 16But their eyes were so restrained that they did not know Him. 17And He said unto them, What subjects are these, which ye are discoursing of to one another as ye walk, and why are ye sorrowful? 18And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered and said to Him, Art thou only a sojourner at Jerusalem, and hast not heard of the things which have been done there within these few days? 19And He said unto them, What things? And they replied, Those concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet powerful both in work and word before God and all the people: 20how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21But we hoped that it was He that would have delivered Israel: and besides all this, to-day is the third day since these things were done. 22And indeed some women of our company much surprised us: who having been early at the sepulchre, 23and not finding his body there, came and said likewise that they had seen a vision of angels, who said He was alive. 24And some of those that were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it so as the women had said: but Him they did not see.

25And He said unto them, O people void of understanding and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken. 26Was not the Messiah to suffer these things, and so to enter into his glory? 27And beginning from Moses, and all the prophets, He explained to them in all the scriptures the things that were spoken concerning Himself.

28And they drew nigh to the village whither they were going: and He made as if He was going farther. 29And they pressed Him, saying, Stay with us, for it is towards evening, and the day is far spent. And He went in to tarry with them. 30And as He sat at table with them, He took bread and blessed it, and then brake it and gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him. 32And He disappeared from them. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, as He was talking with us by the way, and while He was opening to us the scriptures? 33And they rose up immediately and returned to Jerusalem; and sound the eleven and others with them assembled together, saying, 34The Lord is risen indeed, and hath been seen by Simon. 35Then these also related what had happened by the way, and how He became known to them in breaking of bread.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples
(John 20:19–23; 1 John 1:1–4)

36And as they were thus speaking, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be to you. 37But they being terrified and frighted, thought they saw a spirit. 38And He said to them, Why are ye troubled? and why do such thoughts rise in your hearts? 39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40And when He said this, He shewed them his hands and feet. 41But they not yet believing for joy, and being amazed, He said to them, Have ye here any thing to eat? 42And they gave Him part of a broiled fish and some honey-comb: 43and He took, and did eat before them.

44And He said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all the things must be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and Psalms, concerning me. 45Then He opened their mind, to understand the scriptures: 46and said unto them, thus it is written, and thus it was necessary that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead on the third day; 47and that in his name should be preached repentance and remission of sins to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48And ye are witnesses of these things: and I will send upon you the promise of my Father; 49but do ye continue in the city of Jerusalem, till ye are endued with power from on high.

The Ascension
(Mark 16:19–20; Acts 1:6–11)

50And He led them out as far as to Bethany: and lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51And while He was blessing them, He was parted from them, and was carried up into heaven. 52And they worshipped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53And they were constantly in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
