1Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning , they cameunto the sepulchre,bringing the spiceswhich they had prepared , andcertain others withthem.2And they found the stone rolled awayfrom the sepulchre.3And they entered in , and foundnot the body of the LordJesus.4And it came to pass , asthey were much perplexedthereabout , behold , twomen stood bytheminshininggarments:5Andastheywereafraid,and bowed down their facesto the earth, they saiduntothem,Why seek ye the livingaamong the dead?6
He isnothere,but is risen : rememberhow he spake unto you when he wasyetinGalilee,7Saying , The Son of manmust be deliveredinto the hands of sinfulmen,and be crucified , and the thirdday rise again .8And they rememberedhiswords,9Andreturnedfrom the sepulchre, and toldall these things unto the eleven,and to all the rest.10ItwasMaryMagdalene,andJoanna,andMary the mother of James,andother women that were withthem,whichtold these thingsunto the apostles.11Andtheirwordsseemedtothemas idle tales,and they believedthemnot .
12ThenarosePeter, and ranunto the sepulchre;and stooping down , he beheld the linen clotheslaid by themselves,anddeparted , wonderinginhimself at that which was come to pass .
13And,behold , twoofthemwentthatsamedayto a villagecalledEmmaus, which wasfromJerusalem about threescorefurlongs.14Andtheytalkedtogetherofall these things which had happened .
15And it came to pass , that, whiletheycommuned together andreasoned , Jesushimselfdrewnear , and went withthem.16Buttheireyes were holden that they shouldnotknowhim.17And he saiduntothem,What manner of communications are thesethat ye have one toanother, as ye walk , andaresad?18And the one of them,whosename was Cleopas,answeringsaiduntohim, Art thouonly a strangerinJerusalem,andhastnotknown the things which are come to passthereinthesedays?19And he said unto them,What things?And they said unto him,ConcerningJesus of Nazareth,whichwas a prophetmightyindeedandwordbeforeGodandall the people:20
And howthe chief priestsandourrulersdeliveredhimto be condemned to death,and have crucifiedhim.21Butwetrustedthat it had beenhe which should have redeemedIsrael:andbesideallthis, to dayisthethirddaysincethesethings were done .
22Yea, and certainwomenalsoof our companymadeusastonished , which wereearlyat the sepulchre;23And when they foundnothisbody, they came , saying , that they hadalsoseen a vision of angels,whichsaid that he was alive .
24And certain of them which were withuswentto the sepulchre,andfound it evensoas the women had said : buthim they sawnot.25Thenhesaiduntothem,Ofools,andslow of heart to believeallthat the prophets have spoken :26OughtnotChrist to have suffered these things,and to enterintohisglory?27AndbeginningatMosesandall the prophets, he expounded unto theminall the scriptures the things concerninghimself.28And they drew nighunto the village,whither they went : andhe made as though he would have gonefurther.29But they constrainedhim,saying , Abidewithus:for it istowardevening,and the day is far spent . And he went in to tarrywiththem.30And it came to pass , ashe sat at meatwiththem, he tookbread, and blessed it, andbrake , and gave to them.31Andtheireyes were opened , and they knewhim;andhevanishedb out of their sight.32And they said one to another , Didnotourheartburnwithinus,while he talked with usby the way,andwhile he opened to us the scriptures?33And they rose up the samehour, and returnedtoJerusalem,andfound the eleven gathered together , and them that were withthem,34Saying , The Lord is risenindeed,and hath appeared to Simon.35Andtheytold what things were done in the way,andhow he was known of theminbreaking of bread.36And as theythusspake , Jesushimselfstoodin the midst of them,andsaith unto them,Peace be unto you.37But they were terrifiedandaffrighted , and supposed that they had seen a spirit.38And he said unto them,Why are yetroubled ? andwhy do thoughtsariseinyourhearts?39Beholdmyhandsandmyfeet,that it isImyself:handleme,andsee ; for a spirithathnotfleshandbones,as ye seemehave .40And when he had thusspoken , he shewedthem his handsand his feet.41And while theyyet believed notforjoy,andwondered , he said unto them,Have yehereanymeat?42And they gavehim a piece of a broiledfish,andof an honeycomb .
43And he took it, and did eatbeforethem.44And he said unto them,These are the wordswhich I spakeuntoyou,while I was yetwithyou,that all thingsmust be fulfilled , which were writtenin the law of Moses,and in the prophets,and in the psalms,concerningme.45Then opened hetheirunderstanding, that they might understand the scriptures,46Andsaid unto them,Thusit is written , andthus it behovedChrist to suffer , and to risefrom the dead the thirdday:47And that repentanceandremission of sins should be preachedinhisnameamongallnations,beginningatJerusalem.48Andyearewitnesses of these things.49And,behold , Isend the promise of myFatheruponyou:buttarryyein the city of Jerusalem,untilye be endued with powerfrom on high.50And he ledthemout as far astoBethany,and he lifted uphishands, and blessedthem.51And it came to pass , whileheblessedthem, he was partedfromthem,and carried upintoheaven.52Andtheyworshippedhim, and returnedtoJerusalemwithgreatjoy:53Andwerecontinuallyin the temple,praisingandblessingGod.Amen.
