1 AND on the first day of the week, Mary the Magdalene came in the morning, while it was yet dark, to the tomb and saw the stone taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, They have taken away the Lord from the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.
3 Then went Peter and the other disciple, and came to the tomb. 4 And the two ran together; and the other disciple outran Peter and came first to the tomb, 5 and stooping down saw the bandages lying, but he went not in. 6 Then Simon Peter came following him, and went into the tomb, and beheld the bandages lying, 7 and the napkin which was on his head not lying with the bandages but folded up in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple who came first to the tomb also entered in, and saw and believed; 9 for they did not yet know the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away by themselves.
11 But Mary stood at the tomb outside, weeping. Then as she wept she stooped down to the tomb, 12 and saw two angels in white sitting one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 And they said to her, Woman, why do you weep? She said to them, Because they have taken my Lord and I know not where they have laid him. 14 Having said these words she turned around and beheld Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus said to her, Woman, why do you weep? whom do you seek? She, supposing that he was the gardener, said to him, Sir, if you have borne him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him.
16 Jesus said to her, Mary. She, turning around, said to him in Hebrew, Rabboni, which is interpreted, Teacher.
17 Jesus said to her, Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and tell them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.
18 Mary the Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he said these things to her.
19 Then when it was evening, on that first day of the week, and the doors were shut where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, Peace be to you.
20 And having said this he showed them both his hands and his side; then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
21 Then he said to them again, Peace be to you; as the Father has sent me, I also send you. 22 And having said this he breathed on them, and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 Those whose sins you forgive, are forgiven; and whose you retain, are retained.
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 Then the other disciples said to him, We have seen the Lord; but he said to them, Unless I see in his hands the impression of the nails, and put my finger in the impression of the nails, and put my hand in his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days his disciples were again within, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be to you.
27 Then he said to Thomas, Reach here your finger and behold my hands, and reach your hand and put it in my side, and be not faithless but believing.
28 Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God.
29 Jesus said to him, Because you have seen me you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and believed.
30 Jesus performed also many other miracles in the presence of his disciples which are not recorded in this book; 31 but these are recorded that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.
