John 20:1–20

The Resurrection of Christ

Matt. 28:1–8; Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–12

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. 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.”

ePeter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw fthe linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and gthe 1handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. Then the hother disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. 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.

Christ Appears to Mary Magdalene

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.”

14 kNow when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and ldid not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”

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, mMary!”

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, pI am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to qMy God and your God.’ ”

18 rMary Magdalene came and told the 4disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things to her.
