John 20

John 20:1  
Now on the first day of the week, very early, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the place and saw that the stone had been taken away from it.

John 20:2  
Then she went running to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple who was loved by Jesus, and said to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the place of the dead and we have no knowledge where they have put him.

John 20:3  
So Peter and the other disciple went out to the place of the dead.

John 20:4  
They went running together, and the other disciple got in front of Peter and came first to the hole in the rock;

John 20:5  
And looking in, he saw the linen bands on the earth; but he did not go in,

John 20:6  
Then Simon Peter came after him and went into the hole in the rock; and he saw the linen bands on the earth,

John 20:7  
And the cloth, which had been round his head, not with the linen bands but rolled up in a place by itself.

John 20:8  
Then the other disciple who came there first went in; and he saw and belief came to him.

John 20:9  
For at that time they had no knowledge that the Writings said that he would have to come again from the dead.

John 20:10  
So then the disciples went away again to their houses.

John 20:11  
But Mary was still there outside the hole in the rock, weeping; and while she was weeping and looking into the hole,

John 20:12  
She saw two angels in white seated where the body of Jesus had been, one at the head and the other at the feet.

John 20:13  
They said to her, Woman, why are you weeping? She said to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I have no knowledge where they have put him.

John 20:14  
And then looking round, she saw Jesus there, but had no idea that it was Jesus.

John 20:15  
Jesus said to her, Woman, why are you weeping? who are you looking for? She, taking him for the gardener, said to him, Sir, if you have taken him away from here, say where you have put him and I will take him away.

John 20:16  
Jesus said to her, Mary! Turning, she said to him in Hebrew, Rabboni! (which is to say, Master).

John 20:17  
Jesus said to her, Do not put your hand on me, for I have not gone up to the Father: but go to my brothers and say to them, I go up to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.

John 20:18  
Mary Magdalene went with the news to the disciples, and said she had seen the Lord and that he had said these things to her.

John 20:19  
At evening on that day, the first day of the week, when, for fear of the Jews, the doors were shut where the disciples were, Jesus came among them and said to them, May peace be with you!

John 20:20  
And when he had said this, he let them see his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

John 20:21  
And Jesus said to them again, May peace be with you! As the Father sent me, even so I now send you.

John 20:22  
And when he had said this, breathing on them, he said to them, Let the Holy Spirit come on you:

John 20:23  
Any to whom you give forgiveness, will be made free from their sins; and any from whom you keep back forgiveness, will still be in their sins.

John 20:24  
Now Thomas, one of the twelve, named Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

John 20:25  
So the other disciples said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, If I do not see in his hands the print of the nails and put my finger into the print of the nails, and if I do not put my hand into his side, I will never have belief.

John 20:26  
And after eight days, his disciples were again in the house and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were shut, Jesus came, and taking his place in the middle of them, he said, May peace be with you!

John 20:27  
Then he said to Thomas, Put out your finger, and see my hands; and put your hand here into my side: and be no longer in doubt but have belief.

John 20:28  
And Thomas said in answer, My Lord and my God!

John 20:29  
Jesus said to him, Because you have seen me you have belief: a blessing will be on those who have belief though they have not seen me!

John 20:30  
A number of other signs Jesus did before his disciples which are not recorded in this book:

John 20:31  
But these are recorded, so that you may have faith that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and so that, having this faith you may have life in his name.
