20 On m the first day of the week n * Mary Magdalene o came to the tomb p early, while it was still dark. She saw that the stone q had been removed r from the tomb. 2 So she ran to Simon Peter s and to the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, t and we don’t know where they have put Him!”
3 At that, Peter and the other disciple went out, heading for the tomb. 4 The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and got to the tomb first. 5 Stooping down, he saw the linen cloths u lying there, yet he did not go in. 6 Then, following him, Simon Peter came also. He entered the tomb and saw the linen cloths lying there. 7 The wrapping v that had been on His head was not lying with the linen cloths w but was folded up in a separate place by itself. 8 The other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, then entered the tomb, saw, and believed. 9 For they still did not understand the Scripture x that He must rise y from the dead. z 10 Then the disciples went home again.
11 But a Mary stood outside facing the tomb, b crying. As she was crying, she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 She saw two angels c in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet, where Jesus’ body d had been lying. 13 They said to her, “* Woman, why are you crying?”
“Because they’ve taken away my Lord,” e she told them, “and I don’t know where they’ve put Him.” 14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, though she did not know it was Jesus. f
Supposing He was the gardener, she replied, “Sir, if you’ve removed Him, tell me where you’ve put Him, and I will take Him away.”
17 “Don’t cling to Me,” Jesus told her, “for I have not yet ascended i to the Father. j But go to My brothers k and tell them that I am ascending to My Father l and your Father—to My God m and your God.”
19 In the evening of that first day of the week, p the disciples were gathered together with the doors locked because of their fear of the * Jews. Then Jesus came, stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” q
20 Having said this, He showed them His hands and His side. r So the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
