20 Ona the first day of the weekb Mary Magdalenec came to the tombd early, while it was still dark. She saw that the stonee had been removed from the tomb. 2 So she went running to Simon Peterf and to the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said to them, “They’ve taken the Lord out of the tomb,g and we don’t know where they’ve 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 clothsh lying there, but he did not go in. 6 Then, following him, Simon Peter also came. He entered the tomb and saw the linen cloths lying there. 7 The wrappingi that had been on his head was not lying with the linen clothsj but was folded up in a separate place by itself. 8 The other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, then also went in, saw, and believed. 9 For they did not yet understand the Scripturek that he must risel from the dead.m 10 Then the disciples returned to the place where they were staying.
11 Butn Mary stood outside the tomb,o crying. As she was crying, she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 She saw two angelsp in white sitting where Jesus’s bodyq had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“Because they’ve taken away my Lord,”r 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, but she did not know it was Jesus.s 15 “Woman,” Jesus said to her, “why are you crying? Who is it that you’re seeking?”
Supposing he was the gardener, she replied, “Sir, if you’ve carried him away, tell me where you’ve put him, and I will take him away.”
17 “Don’t cling to me,” Jesus told her, “since I have not yet ascendedu to the Father.v But go to my brothersw and tell them that I am ascending to my Fatherx and your Father, to my Gody and your God.”
19 When it was evening on that first day of the week,aa the disciples were gathered together with the doors locked because they feared the Jews. Jesus came, stood among them, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”ab
20 Having said this, he showed them his hands and his side.ac So the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me,ad I also send you.”ae 22 After saying this, he breathed on themaf and said,C “Receive the Holy Spirit.ag 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”ah
27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Don’t be faithless, but believe.”am
30 Jesus performed many other signsao in the presence of his disciples that are not writtenap in this book.aq 31 But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah,a the Sonb of God,A,c and that by believing you may have life in his name.d
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
