(A)“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. (B)Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the (C)seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the (D)sojourner who is within your gates. 11 For (E)in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

12 At that time (A)Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, and (B)they began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, (C)“Look, your disciples are doing (D)what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath.” He said to them, (E)“Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate (F)the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read (G)in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless? I tell you, (H)something greater than the temple is here. And if you had known (I)what this means, (J)‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For (K)the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”

A Man with a Withered Hand

He went on from there and (L)entered their synagogue. 10 And a man was there with a withered hand. And they asked him, (M)“Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—(N)so that they might accuse him. 11 He said to them, “Which one of you who has a sheep, (O)if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 (P)Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So (Q)it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”

The Resurrection

16 (A)(B)When the Sabbath was past, (C)Mary Magdalene, (D)Mary the mother of James, and (E)Salome (F)bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away (G)the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—(H)it was very large. And (I)entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, (J)dressed in (K)a white robe, and (L)they were alarmed. And he said to them, (M)“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that (N)he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, (O)just as he told you.”

33 And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they (A)found the eleven and (B)those who were with them gathered together, 34 saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and (C)has appeared to Simon!” 35 Then they told what had happened on the road, and (D)how he was known to them in (E)the breaking of the bread.

21 Jesus said to her, (A)“Woman, believe me, (B)the hour is coming when (C)neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 (D)You worship what you do not know; (E)we worship what we know, for (F)salvation is (G)from the Jews. 23 But (H)the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father (I)in spirit and (J)truth, for the Father (K)is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Jesus Appears to the Disciples

19 (A)On the evening (B)of that day, the first day of the week, (C)the doors being locked where the disciples were (D)for fear of the Jews,[a] Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, (E)“Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, (F)he showed them his hands and his side. Then (G)the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As (H)the Father has sent me, (I)even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he (J)breathed on them and said to them, (K)“Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 (L)If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

Jesus and Thomas

24 Now (M)Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin,[b] was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, (N)“Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. (O)Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, (P)“Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, (Q)“Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, (R)“My Lord and my God!”

Eutychus Raised from the Dead

(A)One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. (B)Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since (C)he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. For (D)none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, (E)whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. For to this end Christ (F)died and lived again, that he might be Lord both (G)of the dead and of the living.
