John 20:15-17Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
15 Jesus says to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” That one, thinking that He is the gardener, says to Him, “Sir, if you carried Him away, tell me where you put Him, and I will take Him”. 16 Jesus says to her, “Mary”. That one, having turned, says to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). 17 Jesus says to her, “Do not be clinging-to[a] Me, for I have not[b] yet gone-up to the Father. But go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am going-up[c] to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God’”.
John 20:17Or, holding-on-to. Mary needs to stop clinging, and be going.
John 20:17Jesus may mean He must first ascend to the Father (for reasons of which we are ignorant); or, that there is no need to cling to Him now because He is not yet returning to the Father. She will see Him again (over the next forty days).
John 20:17Jesus may mean ascending now, first; or, going to go-up. He is beginning the process of going up, but has not done so yet.
