And behold, there had been a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord having descended from heaven, came and rolled away the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment was white as snow. From fear of him the keepers did shake and become like dead men. read more.
But the angel answered and said to the women: Fear not; for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified.

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.

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 saw two angels in white raiment, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the foot, where the body of Jesus had lain.


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,


But after I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

But after I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples, that he has risen from the dead: and behold, he goes before you into Galilee. There you shall see him. Lo, I have told you.

Then Jesus said to them: Fear not; go, tell my brethren to go into Galilee, and there they shall see me.

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.

But go, tell his disciples, and Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you.

But the angel answered and said to the women: Fear not; for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples, that he has risen from the dead: and behold, he goes before you into Galilee. There you shall see him. Lo, I have told you. And they went out quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying: Hail! And they came and laid hold of his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them: Fear not; go, tell my brethren to go into Galilee, and there they shall see me. While they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city, and told the chief priests all things that were done. And when they came together with the elders, they held a consultation, and gave much money to the soldiers, saying: Say that his disciples came by night and stole him away, while we were asleep. And if this shall be heard in the presence of the governor, we will persuade him, and make you secure. And they took the money, and did as they were taught. And their report of this matter is everywhere published among the Jews to this day.

And early on the first day of the week, while it was yet dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 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 out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him. Then Peter and the other disciple went out, and came to the tomb. read more.
And the two ran together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb; and he stooped down and saw the linen cloths lying, but he did not go in. Then came Simon Peter, following him; and he went into the tomb, and saw the linen cloths lying, and the handkerchief that had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded in a place by itself. Then, therefore, the other disciple, who came first to the tomb, went in, and saw, and believed. For, as yet, they did not know the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples went away again by them selves. But Mary stood without near the tomb, weeping; and as she wept, she stooped down and looked into the tomb, and saw two angels in white raiment, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the foot, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they said to her: Woman, why do you weep? She said to them: They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. Having said this, she turned back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her: "Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek? Supposing that it was the gardener, she said to him: Sir, if you have taken him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus said to her: Mary. She turned, and said to him: Rabboni; which is, translated, Teacher. Jesus said 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. Mary Magdalen came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had said these things to her.


But go, tell his disciples, and Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you.
