John 20

ABU(i) 1 AND on the first day of the week Mary the Magdalene comes early, while it is yet dark, to the sepulchre, and sees the stone taken away out of the sepulchre. 2 She runs therefore and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and says to them: They took away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went to the sepulchre. 4 And the two ran together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And stooping down he sees the linen cloths lying; yet he went not in. 6 Then comes Simon Peter following him; and he went into the sepulchre, and sees the linen cloths lying, 7 and the napkin that was about his head not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then therefore the other disciple, who came first to the sepulchre, went in also; and he saw, and believed. 9 For not even yet did they know the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10 The disciples therefore went away again to their own home. 11 And Mary was standing by the sepulchre without, weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped clown into the sepulchre, 12 and beholds two angels in white, sitting the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus lay. 13 And they say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She says to them: Because they took away my Lord, and I know not where they laid him. 14 Having said this, she turned back and beholds Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus says to her: Woman, why weepest thou? Whom dost thou seek? She, supposing that it was the gardener, says to him: Sir, if thou didst bear him hence, tell me where thou laidest him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus says to her: Mary! Turning, she says to him in Hebrew: Rabboni! (which is to say, Teacher!) 17 Jesus says 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 my God and your God. 18 Mary the Magdalene comes bringing word to the disciples, that she has seen the Lord, and that he spoke these things to her. 19 When therefore it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, the doors having been shut, where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst; and he says to them: Peace be to you. 20 And having said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced therefore, when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus therefore 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 says to them: Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them; and whosesoever 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 to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I see in his hands the print of the nails, and thrust my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus comes, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. 27 After that, he says to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger, and see my hands; and reach thy hand, and thrust it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord, and my God. 29 Jesus says to him: Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed. Happy they who saw not, and have believed! 30 Many other signs also did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye may have life in his name.
