24 1But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came unto
the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2And they found
the stone rolled away from the tomb.
3And they entered in, and found not
the body of the Lord Jesus.
4And it came to pass, while they were
perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel:
5and as they were affrighted and bowed down their faces to the earth,
they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6He is not
here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in
7saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands
of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
remembered his words,
9and returned from the tomb, and told all these
things to the eleven, and to all the rest.
10Now they were Mary
Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James: and the other
women with them told these things unto the apostles.
11And these words
appeared in their sight as idle talk; and they disbelieved them.
Peter arose, and ran unto the tomb; and stooping and looking in, he seeth the
linen cloths by themselves; and he departed to his home, wondering at that
which was come to pass.
13And behold, two of them were going that very
day to a village named Emmaus, which was threescore furlongs from Jerusalem.
14And they communed with each other of all these things which had
15And it came to pass, while they communed and questioned
together, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
eyes were holden that they should not know him.
17And he said unto them,
What communications are these that ye have one with another, as ye walk? And
they stood still, looking sad.
18And one of them, named Cleopas,
answering said unto him, Dost thou alone sojourn in Jerusalem and not know
the things which are come to pass there in these days?
19And he said unto
them, What things? And they said unto him, The things concerning Jesus the
Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the
20and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be
condemned to death, and crucified him.
21But we hoped that it was he who
should redeem Israel. Yea and besides all this, it is now the third day since
these things came to pass.
22Moreover certain women of our company amazed
us, having been early at the tomb;
23and when they found not his body,
they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that
he was alive.
24And certain of them that were with us went to the tomb,
and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
he said unto them, O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that
the prophets have spoken!
26Behooved it not the Christ to suffer these
things, and to enter into his glory?
27And beginning from Moses and from
all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things
28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they
were going: and he made as though he would go further.
constrained him, saying, Abide with us; for it is toward evening, and the day
is now far spent. And he went in to abide with them.
30And it came to
pass, when he had sat down with them to meat, he took the bread and blessed;
and breaking it he gave to them.
31And their eyes were opened,
and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32And they said
one to another, Was not our heart burning within us, while he spake to us in
the way, while he opened to us the scriptures?
33And they rose up that
very hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together,
and them that were with them,
34saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and
hath appeared to Simon.
35And they rehearsed the things that
happened in the way, and how he was known of them in the breaking of the
36And as they spake these things, he himself stood in the midst of
them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37But they were
terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they beheld a spirit.
he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise
in your heart?
39See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle
me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having.
40And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
41And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said unto
them, Have ye here anything to eat?
42And they gave him a piece of a
43And he took it, and ate before them.
44And he said
unto them, These are my words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with
you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of
Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me.
45Then opened he
their mind, that they might understand the scriptures;
46and he said unto
them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from
the dead the third day;
47and that repentance and remission of sins
should be preached in his name unto all the nations, beginning from
48Ye are witnesses of these things.
49And behold, I send
forth the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city, until ye
be clothed with power from on high.
50And he led them out until they
were over against Bethany: and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he parted from them, and
was carried up into heaven.
52And they worshipped him, and returned to
Jerusalem with great joy:
