Jesus rises from the dead

1 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.

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning,

some women came to the sepulchre with spices.

2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

When they arrived, they found the stone rolled away, [1]

and Jesus's body was missing. [2]

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

And they saw two men standing by them in shining garments. [3]

5 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?

The women bowed their faces to the ground,

and the two men said to them,

Why look for the living among the dead?

6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

He's not here, but is risen.

Remember what he said to you in Galilee?

7Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

The Son of man will be crucified

and rise again on the third day.

8 And they remembered his words,

And they remembered.

9 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

Then they left the sepulchre,

and told the eleven, and all the rest. [4]

10It 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.

Among the women who went to the tomb were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. [5]

11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

But those who they told didn't believed them.

12 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.

Then Peter ran to the sepulchre, saw the linen clothes,

and departed, not knowing what to think.

The road to Emmaus
24:13-32, Cf. Mk 16:12-13

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

That same day, two others went to a village named Emmaus,

which was about eleven kilometers from Jerusalem.

14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

As they walked they talked about things that had happened.

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

While they were walking, Jesus joined them.

16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

But they didn't recognize him. [6]

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

Jesus said to them,

Why are you so sad?

18 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?

One of them, whose name was Cleopas, said,

Are you a stranger around here?

Haven't you heard what's happened recently?

19 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:

20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

21 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.

Jesus said, "What things?"

They said,

The prophet Jesus of Nazareth

was crucified a few days ago.

22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

23 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.

Some women in in our group went to the sepulchre and found that his body was missing.

They also saw some angels who said he was alive. [7]

24 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.

Some others went to the sepulchre and didn't see the body either.

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

Jesus said,

You fools! [8] Don't you believe the prophets?

26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

Don't you know Christ must have suffered these things to enter his glory?

27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

And he explained everything in the scriptures

that concerned himself.

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

As they neared the village,

he prepared to leave them.

29 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.

But they talked him out of it, saying,

It's getting late. Stay with us.

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

As they were eating dinner, he took the bread,

blessed it and gave it to them.

31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

And then, they recognized him.

And he vanished out of their sight. [9]

32 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?

They said to each other,

Didn't our hearts burn within us [10]

when he talked to us about the scriptures?

Jesus appears (and eats fish and honey)
24:33-49, Cf. Jn 20:19-23

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

Then they returned to Jerusalem

and found the eleven who were gathered together. [11]

34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

They said, "The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon." [12]

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

And the others told them how they recognized Jesus in the breaking of the bread.

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

Then, while they were speaking, Jesus came and stood in the middle of them, and said, [13] "Peace be with you."

37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

And they were all afraid, thinking they'd seen a ghost. [14]

38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

Jesus said,

Why are you afraid?

39 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.

Look at my hands and feet. Touch me and see.

A spirit doesn't have flesh and bones like I do. [15]

40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Then he showed them his hands and feet.

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

They were still wondering and were too happy to believe,

he said,

Do you have something to eat?

42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

They fed him a piece of boiled fish and a honeycomb.

43And he took it, and did eat before them.

And he ate it in front of them.

44 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.

Then he said,

I told you when I was with you that

45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

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

it's written that Christ would suffer, die, [16]

and rise from the dead on the third day.

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

And that repentence should be preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

You're a witness to all this.

49 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.

I send my Father's promise to you.

Stay in Jerusalem until you have power from on high. [17]

Jesus goes to heaven

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

They worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.

53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

And they stayed in the temple,

continually praising and blessing God.
