RF JOH 20:1 The First Evidence of the Resurrection.
Now on the first day following the Sabbaths,1 while it was early, in fact, still dusk, Mary the Magdalene went to the tomb, and observed that the stone had been removed from its entrance.
RF JOH 20:2 She therefore came running to Simon Peter, and the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them: "They have taken away the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have placed Him."
RF JOH 20:3 Peter therefore went out, along with the other disciple, and came to the tomb.
RF JOH 20:4 They started running together; but the other disciple running more quickly than Peter, arrived first at the tomb,
RF JOH 20:5 and stooping down, he observed the winding-sheet lying there; he did not, however, enter.
RF JOH 20:6 Then Simon Peter, who was following him, also arrived, and entered into the tomb; when he saw how the grave clothes lay,
RF JOH 20:7 as well as the napkin which had been upon His head, not lying with the winding-sheet, but folded up apart in a place by itself.
RF JOH 20:8 The other disciple, who arrived first, then also entered the tomb, and saw and believed.
RF JOH 20:9 [For they did not as yet understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.]
RF JOH 20:10 These disciples accordingly returned to their own companions.
RF JOH 20:11 Jesus Appears to Mary the Magdalene.
Mary, however, stood outside, near the sepulchre, weeping. So crying, as she was, she stooped down to look into the tomb,
RF JOH 20:12 when she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
RF JOH 20:13 Addressing her, they asked, "Why, woman, are you weeping?'" Because they have taken away my Lord," was her answer, "and I do not know where they have placed Him."
RF JOH 20:14 Having said this, she turned round, and saw Jesus Himself standing there, and did not perceive that it was Jesus.
RF JOH 20:15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why do you weep? What do you seek? "She, thinking that it was the gardener, said to Him: "Sir, if You have removed Him from here, tell me where You have placed Him, and I will take Him away."
RF JOH 20:16 Jesus addressed her: "Mary!" Turning round, she exclaimed in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" which means "Master!"
RF JOH 20:17 Jesus said to her, "Touch Me not, because I have not as yet ascended to the Father. Go to My brothers, however, and tell them, 'I go up to My Father and your Father; and My God and your God!"
RF JOH 20:18 Mary the Magdalene came reporting to the disciples: "I have seen the Lord "; and what He had said to her.
RF JOH 20:19 Manifestation to the Ten.
On the evening therefore of that same day, the first after the Sabbaths, the doors having been shut where the disciples were, owing to dread of the Judeans, Jesus came and stood among them, and said to them: "Peace to you!"
RF JOH 20:20 And having said this, He showed them His hands as well as His side. The disciples were accordingly delighted at seeing the LORD.
RF JOH 20:21 He therefore said to them again: "Peace to you! As the Father sent Me, so in the same way I send you."
RF JOH 20:22 And having said this, He infused Himself into them,2 and said, "Receive Holy Spirit.
1.This is literally according to the Greek text: and it is important to observe that at that particular period, two Sabbaths, or days of sacred rest, actually fell together in the Jewish calendar. The Crucifixion took place on Thursday, [Editors note: Wednesday] not on a Friday, as is popularly supposed. This allows for the Lord Jesus having been held in the grip of death for three full days and three nights. (See Introduction to Westcott and Hort's Greek Testament.) This was Thursday, March 17th A.D. 29.
2. Gen 2 End of verse 7.
RF JOH 20:23 If you expel sins from any, they will be free. If you subdue them, they shall be subdued."
RF JOH 20:24 Manifestation to Thomas and Others.
Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.
RF JOH 20:25 The other disciples therefore told him: "We have seen the Lord." In reply to them, however, he said: "Unless I can see the impression of the nails in His hands, and can put my finger in the nail-holes, and can put my hand into His side, I shall certainly never believe it."
RF JOH 20:26 Eight days afterwards, the disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus appeared standing among them,
RF JOH 20:27 and said: "Peace to you." Then to Thomas He said: "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands, and reach your hand, and thrust it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but a believer."
RF JOH 20:28 "My LORD and my God!" exclaimed Thomas, in reply to Him.
RF JOH 20:29 "Because you have seen Me, you have believed," answered Jesus; "happy they who have not seen, yet are believers."
RF JOH 20:30 Many other evidences were also produced by Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this narrative.
RF JOH 20:31 But these are recorded in order that you may believe that He is the Messiah, the Son of God; and believing, that you might become possessed of life by means of His power.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
