The Resurrection of Jesus
John 20- 21
1 Now the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene, early when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, 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 unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they came unto the sepulcher. 4 So they ran both together, but the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulcher. 5 And he stooped down, and saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher, and saw the linen clothes lie, 7 And the kerchief that was upon his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also the other disciple, which came first to the sepulcher, and he saw it, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the Scripture, That he must rise again from the dead. 10 And the disciples went away again unto their own home. 11 But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping; and as she wept, she bowed herself into the sepulcher, 12 And saw two Angels in white, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 And they said unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She said unto them, They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14 When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She supposing that he had been the gardener, said unto him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and said unto him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master. 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and to your Father, and to my God, and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her. 19 The same day then at night, which was the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said to them, Peace be unto you. 20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands, and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they had seen the Lord. 21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you; as my Father sent me, so send I you. 22 And when he had said that, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive the holy Ghost. 23 Whosoever's sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever's sins ye retain, they are retained. 24 But Thomas one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it. 26 And eight days after, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Then came Jesus, when the doors were shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 After said he to Thomas, Put thy finger here, and see my hands, and put forth thine hand, and put it into my side, and be not faithless, but faithful. 28 Then Thomas answered and said unto him, Thou art my Lord, and my God. 29 Jesus said unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou believest; blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. 30 And many other signs also did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these things are written that ye might believe, that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God, and that in believing ye might have life through his Name. 21:1 After these things, Jesus shewed himself again to his disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and thus shewed he himself; 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas, which is called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples. 3 Simon Peter said unto them, I go a fishing. They said unto him, We also will go with thee. They went their way and entered into a ship straightway, and that night caught they nothing. 4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore; nevertheless the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Jesus then said unto them, Sirs, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. 6 Then he said unto them, Cast out the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. So they cast out, and they were not able at all to draw it, for the multitude of fishes. 7 Therefore said the disciple whom Jesus loved, unto Peter, It is the Lord. When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his coat to him (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea. 8 But the other disciples came by ship, (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits) and they drew the net with fishes. 9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw hot coals, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 10 Jesus said unto them, Bring of the fishes, which ye have now caught. 11 Simon Peter stepped forth and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred, fifty and three; and albeit there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 12 Jesus said unto them, Come, and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? Seeing they knew that he was the Lord. 13 Jesus then came and took bread and gave them, and fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen again from the dead. 15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon the son of Jona, lovest thou me more than these? He said unto him, Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He said unto him, Feed my lambs. 16 He said to him again the second time, Simon the son of Jona, lovest thou me? He said unto him, Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He said unto him, Feed my sheep. 17 He said unto him the third time, Simon the son of Jona, lovest thou me? Peter was sorry because he said to him the third time, Lovest thou me? And said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus said unto him, Feed my sheep. 18 Verily, verily I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thine hands, and another shall gird thee, and lead thee whither thou wouldest not. 19 And this spake he signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had said this, he said to him, Follow me. 20 Then Peter turned about, and saw the disciple whom JESUS loved, following, which had also leaned on his breast at supper, and had said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 21 When Peter therefore saw him, he said to Jesus, Lord, what shall this man do? 22 Jesus said unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is it to thee? Follow thou me. 23 Then went this word abroad among the brethren, that this disciple should not die. Yet Jesus said not to him, He shall not die, but if I will that he tarry till I come, what is it to thee? 24 This is that disciple, which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true. 25 Now there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which if they should be written every one, I suppose the world could not contain the books that should be written, Amen.
