Luke 24:1-12

The Resurrection

1 1But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of 2the Lord Jesus.
4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, 3two men suddenly 4stood near them in dazzling clothing;
5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?
6 "He is not here, but He 5has risen. Remember how He spoke to you 6while He was still in Galilee,
7 saying that 7the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."
8 And 8they remembered His words,
9 and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
10 Now they were 9Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to 10the apostles.
11 But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they 11would not believe them.
12 But Peter got up and 12ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away 13to his home, marveling at what had happened.
