Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen.


But concerning those who have fallen asleep, I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that you may not grieve, as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also should we believe that God will, through Jesus, bring with him those who sleep. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we, the living, who remain till the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who are asleep read more.
for the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall arise first; then we, the living who remain, shall, together with them, be caught up in clouds into the air to meet the Lord, and so shall we be ever with the Lord. So, then, comfort one another with these words.

Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus, of Bethany, the village of Mary and Martha her sister. It was the Mary that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. Therefore his sisters sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. read more.
But when Jesus heard it, he said: This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that by it the Son of God may be glorified. Now, Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When, therefore, he heard that he was sick, he still remained two days in the place where he was. Then after this, he said to his disciples: Let us go into Judea again. His disciples said to him: Rabbi, the Jews just now sought to stone thee, and art thou going thither again? Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any one walks during the day,, he does not stumble, for he sees the light of this world. But if any one walks in the night, he stumbles, be cause there is no light in him. Thus spoke he; and after this he said to them: Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go that I may awake him out of sleep. Then his disciples said: Lord, if he sleeps, he will be saved. Jesus spoke of his death; but they thought that he spoke of taking rest in sleep. Therefore, Jesus then said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead. And I rejoice, on your account, that I was not there, in order that you may believe. But let us go to him. Then Thomas, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow-disciples: Let us also go, that we may die with him. Then when Jesus came, he found that he had already been four days in the tomb. Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off. And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. Then Martha, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went out to meet him; but Mary sat still in the house. Then Martha said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here my brother would not have died. But even now, I know that whatever thou wilt ask of God, God will give thee. Jesus said to her: Your brother shall rise again. Martha said to him: I know that he will rise, in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believes on me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and he that lives and believes on me, shall never die. Do you believe this? She said to him: Yes, Lord; I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world. And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary, her sister, secretly, saying: The Teacher has come, and calls for you. When she heard it, she rose quickly and came to him. Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was in the place where Martha met him. Then the Jews that were with her in the house, and were comforting her, seeing Mary rise and go out quickly, followed her, saying: She is going to the tomb to weep there. Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died. Then, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews that came with her weeping also, he was greatly moved in spirit, and troubled; and he said: Where have you laid him? They said to him: Lord, come and see. Jesus wept. Then said the Jews: See how he loved him! And some of them said: Could not he, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have caused that even this man should not have died? Then Jesus, again greatly moved within himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was laid against it. Jesus said: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him: Lord, the body is offensive; for he has been dead four days. Jesus said to her: Did I not tell you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted -up his eyes and said: Father, I thank thee, that thou hast heard me. I know, in deed, that thou dost always hear me. But for the sake of the multitude who stand around me, I have said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that had been dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound around with a handkerchief. Jesus said to them: Loose him, and let him go.

And when the sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early, on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they came to the sepulcher. And they said among themselves: Who will roll away the stone for us from the door of the sepulcher? read more.
for it was very great. And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away. And they entered the sepulcher, and saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe: and they were frightened. But he said to them: Be not frightened; you seek Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here: see the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples, and Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you. And they went out, and fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment seized upon them. And they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid. Now when Jesus had risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven demons. And she went and told it to those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And though they heard that he was alive, and had been seen by her, they did not believe. After this he appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest. But they did not believe them. Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

And on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared; and with them came certain others. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher; and they entered in, but found not the body of the Lord Jesus. read more.
And it came to pass, while they were much perplexed at this, behold, two men stood by them in shining raiment. And while they feared and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them: Why seek you among the dead for him that lives? He is not here, but he has risen; remember that he spoke to you while he was yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, and returned from the sepulcher, and told all these things to the eleven and to the rest. It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and the others with them, that told these things to the apostles. And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. But Peter arose and ran to the sepulcher, and stooping down, he saw the linen clothes lying by themselves; and he departed, wondering in himself at that which had come to pass. And, behold, two of them were going, on the same day, to a village called Emmaus, distant from Jerusalem sixty furlongs. And they were talking to one another about all these things which had taken place. And it came to pass, that, while they conversed and reasoned together, Jesus himself drew near, and went on with them. But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not recognize him. And he said to them: What matters are these which you are discussing with one another as you walk and are sad? And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered and said to him: Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem, and have not known the things that have taken place there in these days? And he said to them: What things? They said to him: The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and in word before God and all the people; and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. But we trusted that it was he that was about to redeem Israel. And besides all this, to-day is the third day since these things were done. And further, certain women of our company, who were early at the sepulcher, astonished us: for they found not his body, and came and told that they had seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. And some of those who were with us went to the sepulcher, and found it even as the women had said, but him they saw not. And he said to them: inconsiderate, and slow of heart to believe all things that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning from Moses, and all the prophets, he explained to them, in all the Scriptures, the things concerning himself. And they drew near the village to which they were going; and he made as if he would go further. And they constrained him, saying: Remain with us, for it is near the evening, and the day has declined. And he went in to remain with them. And it came to pass, while he reclined at table with them, that he took bread and blessed; and he broke, and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he disappeared from them. And they said one to an other, Did not our heart burn within us while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? And they arose the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven, and those who were with them, assembled, and saying: The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon. And they told what had taken place on the way, and how he was made known to them in the breaking of bread. And while they were speaking of these things, Jesus him self stood in the midst of them, and said to them: Peace be to you. But they were terrified and frightened, and thought that they saw a spirit. And he said to them: Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have. And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they did not believe as yet for joy, and were astonished, he said to them: Have you any thing here to eat? And they gave him a piece of broiled fish, and of a honey comb. And he took it, and did eat before them. And he said to them: These are the words that I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled that are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then he opened their mind, that they might understand the scriptures, and he said to them: Thus it is written, and thus was it necessary that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day,



Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen. And he said to them: Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is immersed, shall be saved; he that believes not, shall be condemned. read more.
And these signs shall attend those who believe. In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and, if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. The Lord, therefore, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven: and he sat down at the right hand of God.


These twelve Jesus sent forth after he had charged them, saying: Go not into the road that leads to the Gentiles, and enter not a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. read more.
Cure the sick, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

And the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into the mountain, where Jesus had appointed to meet them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying: All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me. read more.
Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations, immersing them (the disciples) into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo; I am with you all the days, even to the end of the age.

And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them out, two and two, and gave them authority over unclean spirits. And he commanded them to take nothing for their journey, but a staff only; no bag, no bread, no money in their purses; but to be shod with sandals, and not to put on two coats. read more.
And he said to them: Wherever you enter a house, there make your home till you depart from that place. And whoever will not receive you, nor hear you, when you go out from that place, shake off the dust under your feet, for a testimony against them. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city. And they went out and preached that men should repent; and they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and cured them.

Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.

And he called his twelve disciples to him, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure dis eases: and he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. And he said to them: Take nothing for your journey, neither staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; nor have two coats each. read more.
And whatever house you enter, there remain, and thence depart. And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off even the dust from your feet, for a testimony against them. And they departed, and went through every village, preaching the gospel, and per forming cures everywhere.

And after these things, the Lord appointed seventy others, also, and sent them, two and two, before his face, into every city and place to which he himself was about to go. He said, therefore, to them: The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest that he send out laborers into his harvest. Go; behold, I send you as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry no purse, nor bag, nor sandals; and salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest on him; but, if not, it shall return upon you. And in that house remain, eating and drinking what they have to give; for the laborer is worthy of his hire; go not from house to house. And whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them: The kingdom of God has come near to you. But whatever city you enter, and they receive you not, go out into the streets of it, and say: Even the dust of your city, which cleaves to us, we do wipe off against you; yet know this, that the kingdom of God has come near to you. I say to you, It shall be more tolerable, in that day, for Sodom, than for that city.

And he said to them: These are the words that I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled that are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you. But do you remain in the city of Jerusalem, till you be clothed with power from on high.

I mean this: that each one of you says, I am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. Is the Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? or were you immersed into the name of Paul? I thank God that I immersed none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; read more.
that no one may say that I immersed into my own name. I did, in deed, immerse the household of Stephanus; besides, I know not whether I immersed any other. For Christ sent me not to immerse, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of speech, lest the cross of the Christ should be deprived of its power.


And he said to them: These are the words that I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled that are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

Jesus said: Let the dead bury their own dead; but do you go and publish abroad the kingdom of God.

the mystery which was concealed from the ages and the generations, but is now made manifest to his saints, to whom God would make known what is the glorious riches of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory, whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound teaching, but according to their own desires they will pro cure for themselves an abundance of teachers to gratify their itching ears:

But Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honor, unless in his own country, and among his own relatives, and in his own house.

And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that this is he who has been appointed by God as the judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear testimony, that whoever believes on him shall receive remission of sins through his name.



And looking around on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their heart, he said to the man: Stretch forth your hand; and he stretched it forth: and his hand was restored.

And there was a certain man in Lystra, without strength in his feet, who sat, for he was a cripple from his mother's womb, and had never walked. This man heard Paul speak, who, looking earnestly on him, and seeing that he had faith to be saved, said, with a loud voice: Stand erect upon your feet. And he leaped and walked.
