What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
20 Now on the afirst day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the bstone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the cother disciple, dwhom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”
3 ePeter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. 4 So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. 5 And he, stooping down and looking in, saw fthe linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and gthe 1handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. 8 Then the hother disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. 9 For as yet they did not 2know the iScripture, that He must rise again from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again to their own homes.
11 jBut Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 Then they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”
She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said to her, m“Mary!”
She turned and said to 3Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher).
17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet nascended to My Father; but go to oMy brethren and say to them, p‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to qMy God and your God.’ ”
19 sThen, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were 5assembled, for tfear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, u“Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He vshowed them His hands and His side. wThen the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! xAs the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 yIf you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
24 Now Thomas, zcalled the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and areach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be bunbelieving, but believing.”
30 And dtruly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 ebut these are written that fyou may believe that Jesus gis the Christ, the Son of God, hand that believing you may have life in His name.
