Chapter 24Luke


1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came unto the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, while they were perplexed thereabout, [and] lo, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel: 5 and as they were affrighted and bowed down their :faces unto the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living one among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake to you when he was yet in :Galilee, 7 saying that the Son of :man must be delivered up into sinful men’s hands, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 And they remembered his :words, 9 and returned from the tomb, and reported all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 Now they were Mary :Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James: and the other women with them told these things unto the apostles. 11 And these :words appeared in their sight as idle talk; and they disbelieved them. 12 But :Peter arose, and ran unto the tomb; and stooping over, he seeth the linen cloths by themselves; and he †departed to his home, wondering at what was come to pass.
13 And lo, two of them were going that very day to a village called Emmaus, which was threescore furlongs from Jerusalem. 14 And THEY communed with each other of all these things which had happened. 15 And it came to pass, while they communed and questioned together, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16 But their :eyes were holden that they should not know him. 17 And he said unto them, What :words are these that ye exchange one with another, as ye walk? And they stood still, sad-faced. 18 And one Cleopas by name, answering said unto him, Dost thou alone sojourn in Jerusalem and not know the things :come to pass therein in these :days? 19 And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, Those concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a [man] prophet, mighty in deed and word before :God and all the people: 20 and how the chief priests and our :rulers delivered him unto sentence of death, and crucified him. 21 But we hoped that he it was who should redeem :Israel. Yea and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things came to pass. 22 Moreover certain women of ours amazed us, having been early at the tomb; 23 and when they found not his :body, they came, saying, they had also seen a vision of angels, who say he is alive. 24 And certain of those with us went to the tomb, and found it thus, just as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25 And HE said unto them, O foolish, and slow of :heart to †believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Behooved it not the Christ to suffer these things, and to enter into his :glory? 27 And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they were going: and HE made as though he would go further. 29 And they urged him, saying, Abide with us; for it is toward evening, and the day is now far spent. And he went in :to abide with them. 30 And it came to pass, when he had sat down with them to meat, he took the loaf and blessed; and breaking it he gave to them. 31 And their :eyes were opened, and they knew him; and HE vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one unto another, Was not our :heart burning, while he spake to us in the way, as he opened to us the scriptures? 33 And they rose up that very hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven collected together, and those with them, 34 saying [that], The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And THEY rehearsed the happenings on the way, and how he was known of them in the breaking of the bread. 36 And as they spake these things, he himself stood in their midst, and saith unto them, Peace to you. 37 But they, terrified and becoming affrighted, supposed they beheld a spirit. 38 And he said to them, Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise in your :heart? 39 See my :hands and my :feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; because a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having. 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his :hands and :feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved for :joy, and wondered, he said to them, Have ye here aught to eat? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish. 43 And he took it, and ate before them. 44 And he said unto them, These are my :words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all the things written in the law of Moses, and the Prophets, and the Psalms, concerning me must be fulfilled. 45 Then opened he their :mind to understand the scriptures: 46 and he said to them [that], Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise from the dead the third day; 47 and that repentance unto remission of sins be preached in his :name unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 Ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And lo, I send forth the promise of my :Father upon you: but †tarry YE in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high.

50 And he led them out until over against Bethany: and he lifted up his :hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he :blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into :heaven. 52 And THEY worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple, blessing :God.
