1 But, on the first day of the sabbaths, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb; 3 and, entering, they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, while they were perplexed about this, behold, also two men stood near them in dazzling apparel. 5 And, as they became afraid, and were bowing their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why are ye seeking the Living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but was raised. Remember how He spake to you, being yet in Galilee, 7 saying, "The Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again," 8 And they remembered His words;
9 and, returning from the tomb, they reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joana, and Mary the mother of James; and the rest of the women with them were telling these things to the apostles. 11 And these words appeared in their view as idle talk; and they were disbelieving them. 12 But Peter, rising up, ran to the tomb; and, stooping down to look in, he sees the linen bandages alone, and he departed to his home, wondering at what had happened.
13 And, behold, two of them that very day were journeying to a village, the name of which was Emmaus, distant sixty furlongs from Jerusalem. 14 And they were conversing with each other concerning all these things that had happened. 15 And it came to pass, while they were conversing and reasoning together, that Jesus Himself, drawing near, was journeying with them; 16 but their eyes were holden that they should not recognize Him. 17 And He said to them, "What words are these which ye are exchanging one with another, as ye walk?" And they stood still, with sad faces.
18 And one of them, Cleopas by name, said to Him, "Art Thou only a Stranger in Jerusalem, and knowest not the things that came to pass there in these days?"
19 And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a Prophet, mighty in deed and word, before God and all the people: 20 and how the high priests and our rulers delivered Him up to the sentence of death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He Who was about to redeem Israel; yea, indeed, and besides all these things, it is now the third day since these things came to pass. 22 Moreover, also, certain women of our company astonished us, having been early at the tomb; 23 and, not finding His body, they came, saying that they had seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive! 24 And some of those with us went away to the tomb, and found it even so as the women said; but Him they saw not."
25 And He said to them, "O inconsiderate and slow in heart to believe in all that the prophets spake! 26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things, and enter into His glory?" 27 And, beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, He thoroughly interpreted to them, in all the Scriptures, the things concerning Himself.
28 And they drew near to the village whither they were going; and He acted as if He would go further. 29 And they constrained Him, saying, "Abide with us; because it is toward evening, and the day has already declined." And He went in to abide with them.
30 And it came to pass, as He was reclining at table with them, that, taking the bread, He blessed it; and, breaking, He was giving to them; 31 and their eyes were opened, and they clearly recognized Him; and He vanished from them. 32 And they said one to another, "Was not our heart burning within us, as He was talking with us in the way, as He was opening the Scriptures to us!" 33 And, rising up that same hour, they returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven gathered together, and those with them, 34 saying, "Truly the Lord arose, and appeared to Simon." 35 And they were narrating the things that transpired in the way, and how He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
36 Now, as they were telling these things, He Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, "Peace be to you!" 37 But, being terrified and frightened, they were supposing that they were beholding a spirit. 38 And He said to them, "Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise in your heart? 39 See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; handle Me, and see; because a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as ye behold Me having." 40 And, saying this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 And, while they still disbelieved for joy, and marvelled, He said to them, "Have ye here anything to eat?" 42 And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish; 43 and, taking it, He ate before them.
44 And He said to them, "These are My words which I spake to you, while being yet with you: that all things must be fulfilled, that have been written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms, concerning Me." 45 Then He opened their mind, that they might understand the Scriptures; 46 and He said to them, "Thus it has been written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 Ye are witnesses of these things, 49 And, behold, I send forth the promise of My Father upon you; but abide ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high."
50 And He led them as far as to Bethany; and, lifting up His hands, He blessed them. 51 And it came to pass that, while He was blessing them, He parted from them, and was borne up into Heaven. 52 And they, worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy; 53 and were continually in the temple, blessing God.
