1 On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared.
John 20:1-2 Luke 24:10 Luke 8:2-3 Luke 23:55-56 Mark 15:40 Mark 16:1-8 Matt 27:55-56
2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb,
John 20:1-2 Mark 15:46-47 Mark 16:3-4 Matt 27:60-66 Matt 28:2
3 but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
Luke 24:23 John 20:6-7 Matt 16:5
4 As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side.
Acts 1:10 Mark 16:5 Gen 18:2 John 20:11-12 Matt 28:2-6
5 Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, 'Why look among the dead for someone who is alive?
Mark 16:5-6 Rev 1:18 Dan 8:17-18 Dan 10:7-12 Dan 10:16 Dan 10:19 Heb 7:8
6 He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee:
Luke 9:22 Matt 17:22-23 Matt 28:6 Luke 9:44 Luke 18:31-33 Mark 8:31 Mark 9:9-10
7 that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.'
8 And they remembered his words.
John 2:19-22 John 12:16 John 14:26
9 And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others.
Luke 24:22-24 Mark 16:7-8 Mark 16:10 Matt 28:7-8
10 The women were Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. And the other women with them also told the apostles,
Luke 8:2-3 Mark 15:40-41 John 20:11-18 Mark 6:30 Mark 16:9-11 Matt 27:56
11 but this story of theirs seemed pure nonsense, and they did not believe them.
Mark 16:11 2Kgs 7:2 Acts 12:9 Gen 19:14 Job 9:16 Luke 24:25 Ps 126:1
12 Peter, however, went off to the tomb, running. He bent down and looked in and saw the linen cloths but nothing else; he then went back home, amazed at what had happened.
13 Now that very same day, two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem,
Luke 24:18 Mark 16:12-13
14 and they were talking together about all that had happened.
Deut 6:7 Luke 6:45 Mal 3:6
15 And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side;
Luke 24:36 John 14:18-19 Matt 18:20
16 but their eyes were prevented from recognising him.
John 20:14 John 21:4 Luke 24:31 Mark 16:12 2Kgs 6:18-20
17 He said to them, 'What are all these things that you are discussing as you walk along?' They stopped, their faces downcast.
Ezek 9:4-6 John 16:6 John 16:20-22
18 Then one of them, called Cleopas, answered him, 'You must be the only person staying in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have been happening there these last few days.'
19 He asked, 'What things?' They answered, 'All about Jesus of Nazareth, who showed himself a prophet powerful in action and speech before God and the whole people;
Matt 21:11 Acts 2:22 Acts 7:22 John 4:19 Acts 10:38 John 3:2 John 6:14
20 and how our chief priests and our leaders handed him over to be sentenced to death, and had him crucified.
Luke 23:13 Acts 3:13-15 Acts 4:8-10 Acts 4:27-28 Acts 5:30-31 Acts 13:27-29 Luke 22:66-5
21 Our own hope had been that he would be the one to set Israel free. And this is not all: two whole days have now gone by since it all happened;
Luke 1:68 Luke 2:38 1Pet 1:18-19 Acts 1:6 Isa 59:20 Ps 130:8 Rev 5:9
22 and some women from our group have astounded us: they went to the tomb in the early morning,
John 20:1-2 John 20:18 Luke 24:1-11 Mark 16:9-10 Matt 28:7-8
23 and when they could not find the body, they came back to tell us they had seen a vision of angels who declared he was alive.
24 Some of our friends went to the tomb and found everything exactly as the women had reported, but of him they saw nothing.'
Luke 24:12 John 20:1-10
25 Then he said to them, 'You foolish men! So slow to believe all that the prophets have said!
Heb 5:11-12 Mark 8:17-18 Mark 9:19 Mark 16:14 Mark 7:18
26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?'
1Pet 1:11 Heb 9:22-23 Acts 17:3 Heb 2:8-10 Heb 12:2 Isa 53:1-12 Luke 24:46
27 Then, starting with Moses and going through all the prophets, he explained to them the passages throughout the scriptures that were about himself.
John 1:45 Zech 9:9 John 5:39 Deut 18:15 Isa 7:14 Isa 53:1-12 Luke 24:44
28 When they drew near to the village to which they were going, he made as if to go on;
Mark 6:48 Gen 19:2 Gen 32:26 Gen 42:7
29 but they pressed him to stay with them saying, 'It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over.' So he went in to stay with them.
2Kgs 4:8 Acts 16:14 Luke 14:23 Gen 19:3
30 Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them.
Matt 14:19 Luke 9:16 Luke 24:35 Acts 27:35 John 6:11 Luke 22:19 Mark 6:41
31 And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight.
Luke 24:16 John 8:59 Luke 4:30 John 20:13-16
32 Then they said to each other, 'Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?'
Luke 24:45 Ps 39:3 John 6:63 Acts 17:2-3 Acts 28:23 Heb 4:12 Isa 50:4
33 They set out that instant and returned to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven assembled together with their companions,
Acts 1:14 John 20:19-26 Mark 16:13
34 who said to them, 'The Lord has indeed risen and has appeared to Simon.'
1Cor 15:5 Luke 22:54-62 Mark 16:7
35 Then they told their story of what had happened on the road and how they had recognised him at the breaking of bread.
Acts 2:42 Luke 24:30-31 Mark 16:12-13
36 They were still talking about all this when he himself stood among them and said to them, 'Peace be with you!'
Mark 16:14 John 14:27 John 20:26 1Cor 15:5 2Thess 3:16 Isa 57:18 John 16:33
37 In a state of alarm and fright, they thought they were seeing a ghost.
Job 4:14-16 1Sam 28:13 Acts 12:15 Luke 16:30 Mark 6:49-50 Matt 14:26-27
38 But he said, 'Why are you so agitated, and why are these doubts stirring in your hearts?
Jer 4:14 Heb 4:13 Dan 4:5 Dan 4:19 Matt 16:8
39 See by my hands and my feet that it is I myself. Touch me and see for yourselves; a ghost has no flesh and bones as you can see I have.'
John 20:27 1John 1:1 John 20:20 Num 16:22 1Thess 5:23 Eccl 12:7 Heb 12:9
40 And as he said this he showed them his hands and his feet.
41 Their joy was so great that they still could not believe it, as they were dumbfounded; so he said to them, 'Have you anything here to eat?'
John 21:5 Gen 45:26-28 Job 9:16 John 16:22 John 21:10-13 Ps 126:1-2
42 And they offered him a piece of grilled fish,
43 which he took and ate before their eyes.
44 Then he told them, 'This is what I meant when I said, while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets and in the Psalms, was destined to be fulfilled.'
Luke 24:26-27 Acts 13:33 Zech 12:10 Ps 72:1-20 Zech 9:9 Zech 6:12 Ps 118:22
45 He then opened their minds to understand the scriptures,
Acts 16:14 Ps 119:18 Job 33:16 1John 5:20 2Cor 3:14-18 2Cor 4:4-6 Acts 26:18
46 and he said to them, 'So it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead,
Isa 53:2-12 Isa 50:6 Luke 24:44 Luke 24:7 Acts 17:3 Luke 24:26-27 Ps 22:1-31
47 and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
Acts 5:31 Matt 28:19 Acts 2:38 Acts 20:21 1John 2:12 Isa 49:6 Mal 1:11
48 You are witnesses to this.
Acts 1:8 Acts 2:32 Acts 5:32 Acts 13:31 Acts 1:22 Acts 3:15 Acts 10:39
49 'And now I am sending upon you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city, then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.'
Acts 1:4 Acts 1:8 Isa 59:20-21 John 14:26 Isa 32:15 Isa 44:3-4 Joel 2:28-32
50 Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them.
Acts 1:12 Matt 21:17 Gen 14:18-20 Gen 27:4 Gen 48:9 Gen 49:28 Heb 7:5-7
51 Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven.
2Kgs 2:11 John 20:17 Mark 16:19 Acts 1:9 Eph 4:8-10 Heb 1:3 Heb 4:14
52 They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy;
John 16:22 John 20:28 Matt 28:9 Ps 30:11 1Pet 1:8 John 14:28 John 16:7
53 and they were continually in the Temple praising God.
Mark 16:20 Acts 2:46-47 Acts 5:41-42 Matt 28:20 Rev 22:21
