John 20:1–10

The Empty Tomb

1 aNow on the first day of the week bMary Magdalene * came early to the tomb, while it * was still dark, and * saw cthe stone already taken away from the tomb.

2 So she * ran and * came to Simon Peter and to the other adisciple whom Jesus loved, and * said to them, “bThey have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”

3 aSo Peter and the other disciple went forth, and they were going to the tomb.

4 The two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter and came to the tomb first;

5 and astooping and looking in, he * saw the blinen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.

6 And so Simon Peter also * came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he * saw the linen wrappings lying there,

7 and athe face-cloth which had been on His head, not lying with the blinen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.

8 So the other disciple who ahad first come to the tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed.

9 For as yet athey did not understand the Scripture, bthat He must rise again from the dead.

10 So the disciples went away again ato their own homes.
