1It was very early on the first day of the week and stil dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb.She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb 2and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. 'They have takenthe Lord out of the tomb,' she said, 'and we don't know where they have put him.' 3So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. 4They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; 5he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. 6Simon Peter, fol owing him, also came up, went into the tomb, saw the linen cloths lying on the ground 7and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in aplace by itself. 8Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. 9Til this moment they had stil not understood the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10The disciples then went back home. 11But Mary was standing outside near the tomb, weeping. Then, as she wept, she stooped to lookinside, 12and saw two angels in white sitting where the body of Jesus had been, one at the head, the other atthe feet. 13They said, 'Woman, why are you weeping?' 'They have taken my Lord away,' she replied, 'and I don'tknow where they have put him.' 14As she said this she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, though she did not realise that itwas Jesus. 15Jesus said to her, 'Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?' Supposing him to be thegardener, she said, 'Sir, if you have taken him away, tel me where you have put him, and I will go and removehim.' 16Jesus said, 'Mary!' She turned round then and said to him in Hebrew, 'Rabbuni!' -- which meansMaster. 17Jesus said to her, 'Do not cling to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to thebrothers, and tell them: I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' 18So Mary of Magdala told the disciples, 'I have seen the Lord,' and that he had said these things toher. 19In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room wherethe disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, 'Peace be withyou,' 20and, after saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy atseeing the Lord, 21and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you. 'As the Father sent me, so am I sending you.' 22After saying this he breathed on them and said: Receive the Holy Spirit. 23If you forgive anyone's sins, they are forgiven; if you retain anyone's sins, they are retained. 24Thomas, cal ed the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples said to him, 'We have seen the Lord,' but he answered, 'Unless I can see theholes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put myhand into his side, I refuse to believe.' 26Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors wereclosed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. 'Peace be with you,' he said. 27Then he spoke to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put itinto my side. Do not be unbelieving any more but believe.' 28Thomas replied, 'My Lord and my God!' 29Jesus said to him: You believe because you can see me. Blessed are those who have not seen andyet believe. 30There were many other signs that Jesus worked in the sight of the disciples, but they are notrecorded in this book. 31These are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and thatbelieving this you may have life through his name.
