New King James Version
<<< Previous Chapter
1. Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
4. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments.
5. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?
7. saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.' "
10. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who told these things to the apostles.
12. But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.
13. Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem.
17. And He said to them, "What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?"
18. Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, "Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?"
19. And He said to them, "What things?" So they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who 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 crucified Him.
21. But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.
23. When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.
24. And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see."
25. Then He said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
27. And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
28. Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and He indicated that He would have gone farther.
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 stay with them.
30. Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.
32. And they said to one another, "Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?"
33. So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,
35. And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.
36. Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace to you."
39. Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have."
41. But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, "Have you any food here?"
44. Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me."
46. Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
47. and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
49. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high."
51. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
