042:024:001
Now upon the first day of the week,
very early in the morning,
they came unto the sepulchre,
bringing the spices which they had prepared,
and certain others with them.


042:024:002
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.


042:024:003
And they entered in,
and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.


042:024:004
And it came to pass,
as they were much perplexed thereabout,
behold,
two men stood by them in shining garments:


042:024:005
And as they were afraid,
and bowed down their faces to the earth,
they said unto them,
Why seek ye the living among the dead?


042:024:006
He is not here,
but is risen:
remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,


042:024:007
Saying,
The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men,
and be crucified,
and the third day rise again.


042:024:008
And they remembered his words,


042:024:009
And returned from the sepulchre,
and told all these things unto the eleven,
and to all the rest.


042:024:010
It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna,
and Mary the mother of James,
and other women that were with them,
which told these things unto the apostles.


042:024:011
And their words seemed to them as idle tales,
and they believed them not.


042:024:012
Then arose Peter,
and ran unto the sepulchre;
and stooping down,
he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves,
and departed,
wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.


042:024:013
And,
behold,
two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus,
which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.


042:024:014
And they talked together of all these things which had happened.


042:024:015
And it came to pass,
that,
while they communed together and reasoned,
Jesus himself drew near,
and went with them.


042:024:016
But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.


042:024:017
And he said unto them,
What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another,
as ye walk,
and are sad?


042:024:018
And the one of them,
whose name was Cleopas,
answering said unto him,
Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem,
and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?


042:024:019
And he said unto them,
What things?
And they said unto him,
Concerning Jesus of Nazareth,
which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:


042:024:020
And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death,
and have crucified him.


042:024:021
But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel:
and beside all this,
to day is the third day since these things were done.


042:024:022
Yea,
and certain women also of our company made us astonished,
which were early at the sepulchre;


042:024:023
And when they found not his body,
they came,
saying,
that they had also seen a vision of angels,
which said that he was alive.


042:024:024
And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre,
and found it even so as the women had said:
but him they saw not.


042:024:025
Then he said unto them,
O fools,
and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:


042:024:026
Ought not Christ to have suffered these things,
and to enter into his glory?


042:024:027
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets,
he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.


042:024:028
And they drew nigh unto the village,
whither they went:
and he made as though he would have gone further.


042:024:029
But they constrained him,
saying,
Abide with us:
for it is toward evening,
and the day is far spent.
And he went in to tarry with them.


042:024:030
And it came to pass,
as he sat at meat with them,
he took bread,
and blessed it,
and brake,
and gave to them.


042:024:031
And their eyes were opened,
and they knew him;
and he vanished out of their sight.


042:024:032
And they said one to another,
Did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way,
and while he opened to us the scriptures?


042:024:033
And they rose up the same hour,
and returned to Jerusalem,
and found the eleven gathered together,
and them that were with them,


042:024:034
Saying,
The Lord is risen indeed,
and hath appeared to Simon.


042:024:035
And they told what things were done in the way,
and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.


042:024:036
And as they thus spake,
Jesus himself stood in the midst of them,
and saith unto them,
Peace be unto you.


042:024:037
But they were terrified and affrighted,
and supposed that they had seen a spirit.


042:024:038
And he said unto them,
Why are ye troubled?
and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?


042:024:039
Behold my hands and my feet,
that it is I myself:
handle me,
and see;
for a spirit hath not flesh and bones,
as ye see me have.


042:024:040
And when he had thus spoken,
he shewed them his hands and his feet.


042:024:041
And while they yet believed not for joy,
and wondered,
he said unto them,
Have ye here any meat?


042:024:042
And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish,
and of an honeycomb.


042:024:043
And he took it,
and did eat before them.


042:024:044
And he said unto them,
These are the words which I spake unto you,
while I was yet with you,
that all things must be fulfilled,
which were written in the law of Moses,
and in the prophets,
and in the psalms,
concerning me.


042:024:045
Then opened he their understanding,
that they might understand the scriptures,


042:024:046
And said unto them,
Thus it is written,
and thus it behoved Christ to suffer,
and to rise from the dead the third day:


042:024:047
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations,
beginning at Jerusalem.


042:024:048
And ye are witnesses of these things.


042:024:049
And,
behold,
I send the promise of my Father upon you:
but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem,
until ye be endued with power from on high.


042:024:050
And he led them out as far as to Bethany,
and he lifted up his hands,
and blessed them.


042:024:051
And it came to pass,
while he blessed them,
he was parted from them,
and carried up into heaven.


042:024:052
And they worshipped him,
and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:


042:024:053
And were continually in the temple,
praising and blessing God.
Amen.
