23 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate.(A) And they began to accuse him, saying, “We have found this man subverting our nation.(B) He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar(C) and claims to be Messiah, a king.”(D)

So Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the king of the Jews?”

“You have said so,” Jesus replied.

Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no basis for a charge against this man.”(E)

But they insisted, “He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee(F) and has come all the way here.”

On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean.(G) When he learned that Jesus was under Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod,(H) who was also in Jerusalem at that time.

When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him.(I) From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform a sign of some sort. He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer.(J) 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him. 11 Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe,(K) they sent him back to Pilate. 12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends(L)—before this they had been enemies.

13 Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people, 14 and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him.(M) 15 Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death. 16 Therefore, I will punish him(N) and then release him.” [17] [a]

18 But the whole crowd shouted, “Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!”(O) 19 (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.)

20 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again. 21 But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

22 For the third time he spoke to them: “Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have him punished and then release him.”(P)

23 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed. 24 So Pilate decided to grant their demand. 25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will.

The Crucifixion of Jesus(Q)

26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene,(R) who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.(S) 27 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed(T) for him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.(U) 29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’(V) 30 Then

“‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!”
    and to the hills, “Cover us!”’[b](W)

31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”(X)

32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.(Y) 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father,(Z) forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[c](AA) And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.(AB)

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him.(AC) They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”(AD)

36 The soldiers also came up and mocked him.(AE) They offered him wine vinegar(AF) 37 and said, “If you are the king of the Jews,(AG) save yourself.”

38 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.(AH)

39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”(AI)

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”(AJ)

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[d](AK)

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”(AL)

The Death of Jesus(AM)

44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon,(AN) 45 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple(AO) was torn in two.(AP) 46 Jesus called out with a loud voice,(AQ) “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”[e](AR) When he had said this, he breathed his last.(AS)

47 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God(AT) and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” 48 When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts(AU) and went away. 49 But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee,(AV) stood at a distance,(AW) watching these things.

The Burial of Jesus(AX)

50 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, 51 who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God.(AY) 52 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. 54 It was Preparation Day,(AZ) and the Sabbath was about to begin.

55 The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee(BA) followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 56 Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes.(BB) But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.(BC)

Jesus Has Risen(BD)

24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared(BE) and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.(BF) While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning(BG) stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:(BH) ‘The Son of Man(BI) must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’(BJ) Then they remembered his words.(BK)

When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them(BL) who told this to the apostles.(BM) 11 But they did not believe(BN) the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves,(BO) and he went away,(BP) wondering to himself what had happened.

On the Road to Emmaus

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles[f] from Jerusalem.(BQ) 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;(BR) 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.(BS)

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”

They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas,(BT) asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

19 “What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth,”(BU) they replied. “He was a prophet,(BV) powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers(BW) handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.(BX) And what is more, it is the third day(BY) since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us.(BZ) They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”(CA)

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”(CB) 27 And beginning with Moses(CC) and all the Prophets,(CD) he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.(CE)

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it(CF) and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him,(CG) and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us(CH) while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures(CI) to us?”

33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lord(CJ) has risen and has appeared to Simon.”(CK) 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.(CL)

Jesus Appears to the Disciples

36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”(CM)

37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.(CN) 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see;(CO) a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”

40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.(CP)

44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you:(CQ) Everything must be fulfilled(CR) that is written about me in the Law of Moses,(CS) the Prophets(CT) and the Psalms.”(CU)

45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer(CV) and rise from the dead on the third day,(CW) 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name(CX) to all nations,(CY) beginning at Jerusalem.(CZ) 48 You are witnesses(DA) of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised;(DB) but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

The Ascension of Jesus

50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany,(DC) he lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.(DD) 52 Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they stayed continually at the temple,(DE) praising God.

23 فَقَامَتْ جَمَاعَتُهُمْ كُلُّهَا، وَسَاقُوا يَسُوعَ إِلَى بِيلاطُسَ. وَبَدَأُوا يَتَّهِمُونَهُ قَائِلِينَ: «تَبَيَّنَ لَنَا أَنَّ هَذَا يُضَلِّلُ أُمَّتَنَا، وَيَمْنَعُ أَنْ تُدْفَعَ الْجِزْيَةُ لِلْقَيْصَرِ وَيَدَّعِي أَنَّهُ الْمَسِيحُ الْمَلِكُ!» فَسَأَلَهُ بِيلاطُسُ: «أَأَنْتَ مَلِكُ الْيَهُودِ؟» فَأَجَابَهُ: «أَنْتَ قُلْتَ!» فَقَالَ بِيلاطُسُ لِرُؤَسَاءِ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالْجُمُوعِ: «لا أَجِدُ ذَنْباً فِي هَذَا الإِنْسَانِ!» وَلَكِنَّهُمْ أَلَحُّوا قَائِلِينَ: «إِنَّهُ يُثِيرُ الشَّعْبَ، مُعَلِّماً فِي الْيَهُودِيَّةِ كُلِّهَا، ابْتِدَاءً مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ حَتَّى هُنَا!» فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ بِيلاطُسُ ذِكْرَ الْجَلِيلِ، اسْتَفْسَرَ: «هَلِ الرَّجُلُ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ؟». وَإِذْ عَلِمَ أَنَّهُ تَابِعٌ لِسُلْطَةِ هِيرُودُسَ، أَحَالَهُ عَلَى هِيرُودُسَ، إِذْ كَانَ هُوَ أَيْضاً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ فِي تِلْكَ الأَيَّامِ.

وَلَمَّا رَأَى هِيرُودُسُ يَسُوعَ، فَرِحَ جِدّاً، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَتَمَنَّى مِنْ زَمَانٍ طَوِيلٍ أَنْ يَرَاهُ بِسَبَبِ سَمَاعِهِ الْكَثِيرَ عَنْهُ، وَيَرْجُو أَنْ يَرَى آيَةً تُجْرَى عَلَى يَدِهِ. فَسَأَلَهُ فِي قَضَايَا كَثِيرَةٍ، أَمَّا هُوَ فَلَمْ يُجِبْهُ عَنْ شَيْءٍ. 10 وَوَقَفَ رُؤَسَاءُ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالْكَتَبَةُ يَتَّهِمُونَهُ بِعُنْفٍ. 11 فَاحْتَقَرَهُ هِيرُودُسُ وَجُنُودُهُ، وَسَخِرَ مِنْهُ، إِذْ أَلْبَسَهُ ثَوْباً بَرَّاقاً وَرَدَّهُ إِلَى بِيلاطُسَ. 12 وَصَارَ بِيلاطُسُ وَهِيرُودُسُ صَدِيقَيْنِ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ، وَقَدْ كَانَتْ بَيْنَهُمَا عَدَاوَةٌ سَابِقَةٌ.

13 فَدَعَا بِيلاطُسُ رُؤَسَاءَ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالْقُوَّادَ وَالشَّعْبَ. 14 وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَحْضَرْتُمْ إِلَيَّ هَذَا الإِنْسَانَ عَلَى أَنَّهُ يُضَلِّلُ الشَّعْبَ. وَهَا أَنَا، بَعْدَمَا فَحَصْتُ الأَمْرَ أَمَامَكُمْ، لَمْ أَجِدْ فِي هَذَا الإِنْسَانِ أَيَّ ذَنْبٍ مِمَّا تَتَّهِمُونَهُ بِهِ، 15 وَلا وَجَدَ هِيرُودُسُ أَيْضاً، إِذْ رَدَّهُ إِلَيْنَا. وَهَا إِنَّهُ لَمْ يَفْعَلْ شَيْئاً يَسْتَوْجِبُ الْمَوْتَ. 16 فَسَأَجْلِدُهُ إِذَنْ وَأُطْلِقُهُ». 17 وَكَانَ عَلَيْهِ أَنْ يُطْلِقَ لَهُمْ فِي كُلِّ عِيدٍ سَجِيناً وَاحِداً. 18 وَلَكِنَّهُمْ صَرَخُوا بِجُمْلَتِهِمْ: «اقْتُلْ هَذَا، وَأَطْلِقْ لَنَا بَارَابَاسَ!» 19 وَكَانَ ذَاكَ قَدْ أُلْقِيَ فِي السِّجْنِ بِسَبَبِ فِتْنَةٍ حَدَثَتْ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ وَبِسَبَبِ قَتْلٍ. 20 فَخَاطَبَهُمْ بِيلاطُسُ ثَانِيَةً وَهُوَ رَاغِبٌ فِي إِطْلاقِ يَسُوعَ. 21 فَرَدُّوا صَارِخِينَ: «اصْلِبْهُ! اصْلِبْهُ!» 22 فَسَأَلَهُمْ ثَالِثَةً: «فَأَيَّ شَرٍّ فَعَلَ هَذَا؟ لَمْ أَجِدْ فِيهِ ذَنْباً عُقُوبَتُهُ الْمَوْتُ. فَسَأَجْلِدُهُ إِذَنْ وَأُطْلِقُهُ!» 23 فَأَخَذُوا يُلِحُّونَ صَارِخِينَ بِأَصْوَاتٍ عَالِيَةٍ، طَالِبِينَ أَنْ يُصْلَبَ! فَتَغَلَّبَتْ أَصْوَاتُهُمْ، 24 وَحَكَمَ بِيلاطُسُ أَنْ يُنَفَّذَ طَلَبُهُمْ. 25 فَأَطْلَقَ الَّذِي كَانَ قَدْ أُلْقِيَ فِي السِّجْنِ بِسَبَبِ الْفِتْنَةِ وَالْقَتْلِ، ذَاكَ الَّذِي طَلَبُوا إِطْلاقَهُ. وَأَمَّا يَسُوعُ فَسَلَّمَهُ بِيلاطُسُ إِلَى إِرَادَتِهِمْ.


26 وَفِيمَا هُمْ يَسُوقُونَهُ (إِلَى الصَّلْبِ)، أَمْسَكُوا رَجُلاً مِنَ الْقَيْرَوَانِ اسْمُهُ سِمْعَانُ، كَانَ رَاجِعاً مِنَ الْحَقْلِ، وَوَضَعُوا عَلَيْهِ الصَّلِيبَ لِيَحْمِلَهُ خَلْفَ يَسُوعَ. 27 وَقَدْ تَبِعَهُ جَمْعٌ كَبِيرٌ مِنَ الشَّعْبِ وَمِنْ نِسَاءٍ كُنَّ يُوَلْوِلْنَ وَيَنْدُبْنَهُ. 28 فَالْتَفَتَ إِلَيْهِنَّ يَسُوعُ، وَقَالَ: «يَا بَنَاتِ أُورُشَلِيمَ، لَا تَبْكِينَ عَلَيِّ، بَلِ ابْكِينَ عَلَى أَنْفُسِكُنَّ وَعَلَى أَوْلادِكُنَّ! 29 فَهَا إِنَّ أَيَّاماً سَتَأْتِي فِيهَا يَقُولُ النَّاسُ: طُوبَى لِلْعَوَاقِرِ اللَّوَاتِي مَا حَمَلَتْ بُطُونُهُنَّ وَلا أَرْضَعَتْ أَثْدَاؤُهُنَّ! 30 عِنْدَئِذٍ يَقُولُونَ لِلْجِبَالِ: اسْقُطِي عَلَيْنَا، وَلِلتِّلالِ: غَطِّينَا! 31 فَإِنْ كَانُوا قَدْ فَعَلُوا هَذَا بِالْغُصْنِ الأَخْضَرِ، فَمَاذَا يَجْرِي لِلْيَابِسِ؟» 32 وَسِيقَ إِلَى الْقَتْلِ مَعَ يَسُوعَ أَيْضاً اثْنَانِ مِنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ.

33 وَلَمَّا وَصَلُوا إِلَى الْمَكَانِ الَّذِي يُدْعَى الْجُمْجُمَةَ، صَلَبُوهُ هُنَاكَ مَعَ الْمُجْرِمَيْنِ، وَاحِدٌ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَالآخَرُ عَنِ اليَسَارِ. 34 وَقَالَ يَسُوعُ: «يَا أَبِي، اغْفِرْ لَهُمْ، لأَنَّهُمْ لَا يَدْرُونَ مَا يَفْعَلُونَ!» وَاقْتَسَمُوا ثِيَابَهُ مُقْتَرِعِينَ عَلَيْهَا.

35 وَوَقَفَ الشَّعْبُ هُنَاكَ يُرَاقِبُونَهُ، وَكَذلِكَ الرُّؤَسَاءُ يَتَهَكَّمُونَ قَائِلِينَ: «خَلَّصَ آخَرِينَ! فَلْيُخَلِّصْ نَفْسَهُ إِنْ كَانَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحَ الْمُخْتَارَ عِنْدَ اللهِ!» 36 وَسَخِرَ مِنْهُ الْجُنُودُ أَيْضاً، فَكَانُوا يَتَقَدَّمُونَ إِلَيْهِ وَيُقَدِّمُونَ لَهُ خَلًّا، 37 قَائِلِينَ: «إِنْ كُنْتَ أَنْتَ مَلِكَ الْيَهُودِ، فَخَلِّصْ نَفْسَكَ» 38 وَكَانَتْ فَوْقَهُ لافِتَةٌ كُتِبَ فِيهَا: «هَذَا هُوَ مَلِكُ الْيَهُودِ». 39 وَأَخَذَ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الْمُجْرِمَيْنِ الْمَصْلُوبَيْنِ يُجَدِّفُ عَلَيْهِ فَيَقُولُ: «أَلَسْتَ أَنْتَ الْمَسِيحَ؟ إِذَنْ خَلِّصْ نَفْسَكَ وَخَلِّصْنَا!» 40 وَلكِنَّ الآخَرَ كَلَّمَهُ زَاجِراً فَقَالَ: «أَحَتَّى أَنْتَ لَا تَخَافُ اللهَ، وَأَنْتَ تُعَانِي الْعُقُوبَةَ نَفْسَهَا؟ 41 أَمَّا نَحْنُ فَعُقُوبَتُنَا عَادِلَةٌ لأَنَّنَا نَنَالُ الْجَزَاءَ الْعَادِلَ لِقَاءَ مَا فَعَلْنَا. وَأَمَّا هَذَا الإِنْسَانُ، فَلَمْ يَفْعَلُ شَيْئاً فِي غَيْرِ مَحَلِّهِ!» 42 ثُمَّ قَالَ: «يَا يَسُوعُ، اذْكُرْنِي عِنْدَمَا تَجِيءُ فِي مَلَكُوتِكَ!» 43 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكَ: الْيَوْمَ سَتَكُونُ مَعِي فِي الْفِرْدَوْسِ!»

موت يسوع

44 وَنَحْوَ السَّاعَةِ السَّادِسَةِ (الثَّانِيَةَ عَشْرَةَ ظُهْراً)، حَلَّ الظَّلامُ عَلَى الأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا حَتَّى السَّاعَةِ التَّاسِعَةِ (الثَّالِثَةِ بَعْدَ الظُّهْرِ). 45 وَأَظْلَمَتِ الشَّمْسُ، وَانْشَطَرَ سِتَارُ الْهَيْكَلِ مِنَ الوَسَطِ. 46 وَقَالَ يَسُوعُ صَارِخاً بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ: «يَا أَبِي، فِي يَدَيْكَ أَسْتَوْدِعُ رُوحِي!» وَإِذْ قَالَ هَذَا، أَسْلَمَ الرُّوحَ. 47 فَلَمَّا رَأَى قَائِدُ الْمِئَةِ مَا حَدَثَ، مَجَّدَ اللهَ قَائِلاً: «بِالْحَقِيقَةِ كَانَ هَذَا الإِنْسَانُ بَارّاً». 48 كَذلِكَ الْجُمُوعُ الَّذِينَ احْتَشَدُوا لِيُرَاقِبُوا مَشْهَدَ الصَّلْبِ، لَمَّا رَأَوْا مَا حَدَثَ، رَجَعُوا قَارِعِينَ الصُّدُورَ. 49 أَمَّا جَمِيعُ مَعَارِفِهِ، بِمَنْ فِيهِمِ النِّسَاءُ اللَّوَاتِي تَبِعْنَهُ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ، فَقَدْ كَانُوا وَاقِفِينَ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ يُرَاقِبُونَ هذِهِ الأُمُورَ.

دفن يسوع

50 وَكَانَ فِي الْمَجْلِسِ الأَعْلَى إِنْسَانٌ اسْمُهُ يُوسُفُ، وَهُوَ إِنْسَانٌ صَالِحٌ وَتَقِيٌّ 51 لَمْ يَكُنْ مُوَافِقاً عَلَى قَرَارِ أَعْضَاءِ الْمَجْلِسِ وَفِعْلَتِهِمْ، وَهُوَ مِنَ الرَّامَةِ إِحْدَى مُدُنِ الْيَهُودِ، وَكَانَ مِنْ مُنْتَظِرِي مَلَكُوتِ اللهِ. 52 فَإِذَا بِهِ قَدْ تَقَدَّمَ إِلَى بِيلاطُسَ وَطَلَبَ جُثْمَانَ يَسُوعَ. 53 ثُمَّ أَنْزَلَهُ (مِنْ عَلَى الصَّلِيبِ) وَكَفَّنَهُ بِكَتَّانِ، وَوَضَعَهُ فِي قَبْرٍ مَنْحُوتٍ (فِي الصَّخْرِ) لَمْ يُدْفَنْ فِيهِ أَحَدٌ مِنْ قَبْلُ. 54 وَكَانَ ذَلِكَ النَّهَارُ يَوْمَ الإِعْدَادِ لِلسَّبْتِ الَّذِي كَانَ قَدْ بَدَأَ يَقْتَرِبُ. 55 وَتَبِعَتْ يُوسُفَ النِّسَاءُ اللَّوَاتِي خَرَجْنَ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ مَعَ يَسُوعَ، فَرَأَيْنَ الْقَبْرَ وَكَيْفَ وُضِعَ جُثْمَانُهُ. 56 ثُمَّ رَجَعْنَ وَهَيَّأْنَ حَنُوطاً وَطِيباً، وَاسْتَرَحْنَ يَوْمَ السَّبْتِ حَسَبَ الْوَصِيَّةِ.


24 وَلكِنْ فِي الْيَوْمِ الأَوَّلِ مِنَ الأُسْبُوعِ، بَاكِراً جِدّاً، جِئْنَ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ حَامِلاتٍ الْحَنُوطَ الَّذِي هَيَّأْنَهُ. فَوَجَدْنَ الْحَجَرَ قَدْ دُحْرِجَ عَنِ الْقَبْرِ. وَلكِنْ لَمَّا دَخَلْنَ لَمْ يَجِدْنَ جُثْمَانَ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ. وَفِيمَا هُنَّ مُتَحَيِّرَاتٌ فِي ذلِكَ، إِذَا رَجُلانِ بِثِيَابٍ بَرَّاقَةٍ قَدْ وَقَفَا بِجَانِبِهِنَّ. فَتَمَلَّكَهُنَّ الْخَوْفُ وَنَكَّسْنَ وُجُوهَهُنَّ إِلَى الأَرْضِ. عِنْدَئِذٍ قَالَ لَهُنَّ الرَّجُلانِ: «لِمَاذَا تَبْحَثْنَ عَنِ الْحَيِّ بَيْنَ الأَمْوَاتِ؟ إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ هُنَا، وَلَكِنَّهُ قَدْ قَامَ! اذْكُرْنَ مَا كَلَّمَكُمْ بِهِ إِذْ كَانَ بَعْدُ فِي الْجَلِيلِ فَقَالَ: إِنَّ ابْنَ الإِنْسَانِ لابُدَّ أَنْ يُسَلَّمَ إِلَى أَيْدِي أُنَاسٍ خَاطِئِينَ، فَيُصْلَبَ، وَفِي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ يَقُومُ». فَتَذَكَّرْنَ كَلامَهُ. وَإِذْ رَجَعْنَ مِنَ الْقَبْرِ، أَخْبَرْنَ الأَحَدَ عَشَرَ وَالآخَرِينَ كُلَّهُمْ بِهذِهِ الأُمُورِ جَمِيعاً. 10 وَكَانَتِ اللَّوَاتِي أَخْبَرْنَ الرُّسُلَ بِذلِكَ هُنَّ مَرْيَمُ الْمَجْدَلِيَّةُ، وَيُوَنَّا، وَمَرْيَمُ أُمُّ يَعْقُوبَ، وَالأُخْرَيَاتُ اللَّوَاتِي ذَهَبْنَ مَعَهُنَّ. 11 فَبَدَا كَلامُهُنَّ فِي نَظَرِ الرُّسُلِ كَأَنَّهُ هَذَيَانٌ، وَلَمْ يُصَدِّقُوهُنَّ. 12 إِلّا أَنَّ بُطْرُسَ قَامَ وَرَكَضَ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ، وَإِذِ انْحَنَى رَأَى الأَكْفَانَ الْمَلْفُوفَةَ وَحْدَهَا، ثُمَّ مَضَى مُتَعَجِّباً مِمَّا حَدَثَ.

في الطريق إلى عمواس

13 وَكَانَ اثْنَانِ مِنْهُمْ مُنْطَلِقَيْنِ فِي ذلِكَ الْيَوْمِ إِلَى قَرْيَةٍ تَبْعُدُ سِتِّينَ غَلْوَةً (نَحْوَ سَبْعَةِ أَمْيَالٍ) عَنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ، اسْمُهَا عِمْوَاسُ. 14 وَكَانَا يَتَحَدَّثَانِ عَنْ جَمِيعِ مَا حَدَثَ 15 وَبَيْنَمَا هُمَا يَتَحَدَّثَانِ وَيَتَبَاحَثَانِ، إِذَا يَسُوعُ نَفْسُهُ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَ إِلَيْهِمَا وَسَارَ مَعَهُمَا. 16 وَلكِنَّ أَعْيُنَهُمَا حُجِبَتْ عَنْ مَعْرِفَتِهِ. 17 وَسَأَلَهُمَا: «أَيُّ حَدِيثٍ يَجْرِي بَيْنَكُمَا وَأَنْتُمَا سَائِرَانِ؟» فَتَوَقَّفَا عَابِسَيْنِ. 18 وَأَجَابَ أَحَدُهُمَا، وَاسْمُهُ كَلْيُوبَاسُ، فَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَأَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ الْغَرِيبُ النَّازِلُ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَلا تَعْلَمُ بِمَا حَدَثَ فِيهَا فِي هذِهِ الأَيَّامِ؟» 19 فَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «مَاذَا حَدَثَ؟» فَقَالا: «مَا حَدَثَ لِيَسُوعَ النَّاصِرِيِّ الَّذِي كَانَ نَبِيًّا مُقْتَدِراً فِي الْفِعْلِ وَالْقَوْلِ أَمَامَ اللهِ وَالشَّعْبِ كُلِّهِ، 20 وَكَيْفَ سَلَّمَهُ رُؤَسَاءُ الْكَهَنَةِ وَحُكَّامُنَا إِلَى عُقُوبَةِ الْمَوْتِ وَصَلَبُوهُ. 21 وَلَكِنَّنَا كُنَّا نَرْجُو أَنَّهُ الْمُوشِكُ أَنْ يَفْدِيَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَمَعَ هَذَا كُلِّهِ، فَالْيَوْمَ هُوَ الْيَوْمُ الثَّالِثُ مُنْذُ حُدُوثِ ذلِكَ. 22 عَلَى أَنَّ بَعْضَ النِّسَاءِ مِنَّا أَذْهَلْنَنَا، إِذْ قَصَدْنَ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ بَاكِراً 23 وَلَمْ يَجِدْنَ جُثْمَانَهُ، فَرَجَعْنَ وَقُلْنَ لَنَا إِنَّهُنَّ شَاهَدْنَ رُؤْيَا: مَلاكَيْنِ يَقُولانِ إِنَّهُ حَيٌّ. 24 فَذَهَبَ بَعْضُ الَّذِينَ مَعَنَا إِلَى الْقَبْرِ فَوَجَدُوا الأَمْرَ صَحِيحاً عَلَى حَدِّ مَا قَالَتِ النِّسَاءُ أَيْضاً، وَأَمَّا هُوَ فَلَمْ يَرَوْهُ!» 25 فَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «يَا قَلِيلَيِ الْفَهْمِ وَبَطِيئَيِ الْقَلْبِ فِي الإِيمَانِ بِجَمِيعِ مَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ الأَنْبِيَاءُ! 26 أَمَا كَانَ لابُدَّ أَنْ يُعَانِيَ الْمَسِيحُ هذِهِ الآلامَ ثُمَّ يَدْخُلَ إِلَى مَجْدِهِ؟» 27 ثُمَّ أَخَذَ يُفَسِّرُ لَهُمَا، مُنْطَلِقاً مِنْ مُوسَى وَمِنَ الأَنْبِيَاءِ جَمِيعاً، مَا وَرَدَ عَنْهُ فِي جَمِيعِ الْكُتُبِ.

28 ثُمَّ اقْتَرَبُوا مِنَ الْقَرْيَةِ الَّتِي كَانَ التِّلْمِيذَانِ يَقْصِدَانِهَا، وَتَظَاهَرَ هُوَ بِأَنَّهُ ذَاهِبٌ إِلَى مَكَانٍ أَبْعَدَ. 29 فَأَلَحَّا عَلَيْهِ قَائِلَيْنِ: «انْزِلْ عِنْدَنَا، فَقَدْ مَالَ النَّهَارُ وَاقْتَرَبَ الْمَسَاءُ». فَدَخَلَ لِيَنْزِلَ عِنْدَهُمَا. 30 وَلَمَّا اتَّكَأَ مَعَهُمَا، أَخَذَ الْخُبْزَ، وَبَارَكَ، وَكَسَّرَ، وَأَعْطَاهُمَا. 31 فَانْفَتَحَتْ أَعْيُنُهُمَا وَعَرَفَاهُ. ثُمَّ اخْتَفَى عَنْهُمَا. 32 فَقَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا لِلآخَرِ: «أَمَا كَانَ قَلْبُنَا يَلْتَهِبُ فِي صُدُورِنَا فِيمَا كَانَ يُحَدِّثُنَا فِي الطَّرِيقِ وَيَشْرَحُ لَنَا الْكُتُبَ؟» 33 ثُمَّ قَامَا فِي تِلْكَ السَّاعَةِ عَيْنِهَا، وَرَجَعَا إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، فَوَجَدَا الأَحَدَ عَشَرَ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُمْ مُجْتَمِعِينَ، 34 وَكَانُوا يَقُولُونُ: «حَقّاً إِنَّ الرَّبَّ قَامَ، وَقَدْ ظَهَرَ لِسِمْعَانَ». 35 فَأَخْبَرَاهُمْ بِمَا حَدَثَ فِي الطَّرِيقِ، وَكَيْفَ عَرَفَا الرَّبَّ عِنْدَ كَسْرِ الْخُبْزِ.

يسوع يظهر للتلاميذ

36 وَفِيمَا هُمَا يَتَكَلَّمَانِ بِذَلِكَ، وَقَفَ يَسُوعُ نَفْسُهُ فِي وَسَطِهِمْ، وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «سَلامٌ لَكُمْ!» 37 وَلكِنَّهُمْ، لِذُعْرِهِمْ وَخَوْفِهِمْ، تَوَهَّمُوا أَنَّهُمْ يَرَوْنَ شَبَحاً. 38 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «مَا بَالُكُمْ مُضْطَرِبِينَ؟ وَلِمَاذَا تَنْبَعِثُ الشُّكُوكُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ؟ 39 انْظُرُوا يَدَيَّ وَقَدَمَيَّ، فَأَنَا هُوَ بِنَفْسِي. الْمِسُونِي وَتَحَقَّقُوا، فَإِنَّ الشَّبَحَ لَيْسَ لَهُ لَحْمٌ وَعِظَامٌ كَمَا تَرَوْنَ لِي». 40 وَإِذْ قَالَ ذَلِكَ، أَرَاهُمْ يَدَيْهِ وَقَدَمَيْهِ. 41 وَإِذْ مَازَالُوا غَيْرَ مُصَدِّقِينَ مِنَ الْفَرَحِ وَمُتَعَجِّبِينَ، قَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَعِنْدَكُمْ هُنَا مَا يُؤْكَلُ؟» 42 فَنَاوَلُوهُ قِطْعَةَ سَمَكٍ مَشْوِيٍّ. 43 فَأَخَذَهَا أَمَامَهُمْ وَأَكَلَ.

44 ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُمْ: «هَذَا هُوَ الكَلامُ الَّذِي كَلَّمْتُكُمْ بِهِ وَأَنَا مَازِلْتُ بَيْنَكُمْ: أَنَّهُ لابُدَّ أَنْ يَتِمَّ كُلُّ مَا كُتِبَ عَنِّي فِي شَرِيعَةِ مُوسَى وَكُتُبِ الأَنْبِيَاءِ وَالْمَزَامِيرِ». 45 ثُمَّ فَتَحَ أَذْهَانَهُمْ لِيَفْهَمُوا الْكُتُبَ، 46 وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «هكَذَا قَدْ كُتِبَ، وَهكَذَا كَانَ لابُدَّ أَنْ يَتَأَلَّمَ الْمَسِيحُ وَيَقُومَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ فِي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ، 47 وَأَنْ يُبَشَّرَ بِاسْمِهِ بِالتَّوْبَةِ وَغُفْرَانِ الْخَطَايَا فِي جَمِيعِ الأُمَمِ انْطِلاقاً مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ. 48 وَأَنْتُمْ شُهُودٌ عَلَى هذِهِ الأُمُورِ. 49 وَهَا أَنَا سَأُرْسِلُ إِلَيْكُمْ مَا وَعَدَ بِهِ أَبِي. وَلَكِنْ أَقِيمُوا فِي الْمَدِينَةِ حَتَّى تُلْبَسُوا الْقُوَّةَ مِنَ الأَعَالِي!»


50 ثُمَّ اقْتَادَهُمْ إِلَى خَارِجِ الْمَدِينَةِ إِلَى بَيْتِ عَنْيَا. وَبَارَكَهُمْ رَافِعاً يَدَيْهِ. 51 وَبَيْنَمَا كَانَ يُبَارِكُهُمْ، انْفَصَلَ عَنْهُمْ وَأُصْعِدَ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ 52 فَسَجَدُوا لَهُ، ثُمَّ رَجَعُوا إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ بِفَرَحٍ عَظِيمٍ، 53 وَكَانُوا يَذْهَبُونَ دَائِماً إِلَى الْهَيْكَلِ، حَيْثُ يُسَبِّحُونَ اللهَ وَيُبَارِكُونَهُ.

Jesus Sentenced to Be Crucified(A)

19 Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged.(B) The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!”(C) And they slapped him in the face.(D)

Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews gathered there, “Look, I am bringing him out(E) to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him.”(F) When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe,(G) Pilate said to them, “Here is the man!”

As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!”

But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him.(H) As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.”(I)

The Jewish leaders insisted, “We have a law, and according to that law he must die,(J) because he claimed to be the Son of God.”(K)

When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, and he went back inside the palace.(L) “Where do you come from?” he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer.(M) 10 “Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?”

11 Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.(N) Therefore the one who handed me over to you(O) is guilty of a greater sin.”

12 From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jewish leaders kept shouting, “If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king(P) opposes Caesar.”

13 When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge’s seat(Q) at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic(R) is Gabbatha). 14 It was the day of Preparation(S) of the Passover; it was about noon.(T)

“Here is your king,”(U) Pilate said to the Jews.

15 But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”

“Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked.

“We have no king but Caesar,” the chief priests answered.

16 Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.(V)

The Crucifixion of Jesus(W)

So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross,(X) he went out to the place of the Skull(Y) (which in Aramaic(Z) is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others(AA)—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.

19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of nazareth,(AB) the king of the jews.(AC) 20 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city,(AD) and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21 The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”(AE)

22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”

This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled(AF) that said,

“They divided my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.”[a](AG)

So this is what the soldiers did.

25 Near the cross(AH) of Jesus stood his mother,(AI) his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.(AJ) 26 When Jesus saw his mother(AK) there, and the disciple whom he loved(AL) standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman,[b] here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

The Death of Jesus(AM)

28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished,(AN) and so that Scripture would be fulfilled,(AO) Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar(AP) was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.”(AQ) With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

31 Now it was the day of Preparation,(AR) and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses(AS) during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other.(AT) 33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced(AU) Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.(AV) 35 The man who saw it(AW) has given testimony, and his testimony is true.(AX) He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. 36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled:(AY) “Not one of his bones will be broken,”[c](AZ) 37 and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”[d](BA)

The Burial of Jesus(BB)

38 Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders.(BC) With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away. 39 He was accompanied by Nicodemus,(BD) the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.[e] 40 Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen.(BE) This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.(BF) 41 At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. 42 Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation(BG) and since the tomb was nearby,(BH) they laid Jesus there.

The Empty Tomb(BI)

20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene(BJ) went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.(BK) So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved,(BL) and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”(BM)

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb.(BN) Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in(BO) at the strips of linen(BP) lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head.(BQ) The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first,(BR) also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture(BS) that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)(BT) 10 Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

11 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb(BU) 12 and saw two angels in white,(BV) seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”(BW)

“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”(BX) 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there,(BY) but she did not realize that it was Jesus.(BZ)

15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?(CA) Who is it you are looking for?”

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic,(CB) “Rabboni!”(CC) (which means “Teacher”).

17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers(CD) and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father(CE) and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

18 Mary Magdalene(CF) went to the disciples(CG) with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders,(CH) Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace(CI) be with you!”(CJ) 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side.(CK) The disciples were overjoyed(CL) when they saw the Lord.

21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you!(CM) As the Father has sent me,(CN) I am sending you.”(CO) 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.(CP) 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”(CQ)

Jesus Appears to Thomas

24 Now Thomas(CR) (also known as Didymus[f]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”

But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side,(CS) I will not believe.”(CT)

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace(CU) be with you!”(CV) 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”(CW)

28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed;(CX) blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”(CY)

The Purpose of John’s Gospel

30 Jesus performed many other signs(CZ) in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.(DA) 31 But these are written that you may believe[g](DB) that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God,(DC) and that by believing you may have life in his name.(DD)

Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish

21 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples,(DE) by the Sea of Galilee.[h](DF) It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas(DG) (also known as Didymus[i]), Nathanael(DH) from Cana in Galilee,(DI) the sons of Zebedee,(DJ) and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.(DK)

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.(DL)

He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.(DM)

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved(DN) said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.[j] When they landed, they saw a fire(DO) of burning coals there with fish on it,(DP) and some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.(DQ) 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples(DR) after he was raised from the dead.

Jesus Reinstates Peter

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”(DS)

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”(DT)

16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”(DU)

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?”(DV) He said, “Lord, you know all things;(DW) you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.(DX) 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death(DY) by which Peter would glorify God.(DZ) Then he said to him, “Follow me!”(EA)

20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved(EB) was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”)(EC) 21 When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

22 Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return,(ED) what is that to you? You must follow me.”(EE) 23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers(EF) that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”

24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things(EG) and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.(EH)

25 Jesus did many other things as well.(EI) If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

الحكم على يسوع بالصلب

19 عِنْدَئِذٍ أَمَرَ بِيلاطُسُ بِأَنْ يُؤْخَذَ يَسُوعُ وَيُجْلَدَ. وَجَدَلَ الْجُنُودُ إِكْلِيلاً مِنَ الشَّوْكِ وَضَعُوهُ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، وَأَلْبَسُوهُ رِدَاءَ أُرْجُوَانٍ. وَأَخَذُوا يَتَقَدَّمُونَ إِلَيْهِ وَيَقُولُونَ: «سَلامٌ، يَا مَلِكَ الْيَهُودِ!» وَيَلْطِمُونَهُ.

وَخَرَجَ بِيلاطُسُ مَرَّةً أُخْرَى إِلَى الْجُمْهُورِ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «سَأُخْرِجُهُ إِلَيْكُمْ لِتَرَوْا أَنِّي لَا أَجِدُ فِيهِ ذَنْباً!» فَخَرَجَ يَسُوعُ وَعَلَيْهِ إِكْلِيلُ الشَّوْكِ وَرِدَاءُ الأُرْجُوَانِ. فَقَالَ لَهُمْ بِيلاطُسُ: «هَا هُوَ الإِنْسَانُ!» فَلَمَّا رَآهُ رُؤَسَاءُ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالْحَرَسُ صَرَخُوا: «اصْلِبْهُ! اصْلِبْهُ!» فَقَالَ لَهُمْ بِيلاطُسُ: «بَلْ خُذُوهُ أَنْتُمْ وَاصْلِبُوهُ، فَإِنِّي لَا أَجِدُ فِيهِ ذَنْباً!» فَأَجَابَهُ الْيَهُودُ: «لَنَا شَرِيعَةٌ. وَبِحَسَبِ شَرِيعَتِنَا يَتَحَتَّمُ عَلَيْهِ الْمَوْتُ، لأَنَّهُ جَعَلَ نَفْسَهُ ابْنَ اللهِ». فَعِنْدَمَا سَمِعَ بِيلاطُسُ هَذَا الْكَلامَ، اشْتَدَّ خَوْفُهُ، وَدَخَلَ إِلَى قَصْرِهِ وَسَأَلَ يَسُوعَ: «مِنْ أَيْنَ أَنْتَ؟» فَلَمْ يُجِبْهُ يَسُوعُ بِشَيْءٍ. 10 فَقَالَ لَهُ بِيلاطُسُ: «أَمَا تُكَلِّمُنِي؟ أَلا تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ لِي سُلْطَةً أَنْ أُطْلِقَكَ، وَسُلْطَةً أَنْ أَصْلِبَكَ؟» 11 فَأَجَابَهُ يَسُوعُ «مَا كَانَ لَكَ عَلَيَّ سُلْطَةٌ قَطُّ، لَوْ لَمْ تَكُنْ قَدْ أُعْطِيَتْ لَكَ مِنْ فَوْقُ. لِذلِكَ فَالَّذِي سَلَّمَنِي إِلَيْكَ لَهُ خَطِيئَةٌ أَعْظَمُ.»

12 مِنْ أَجْلِ ذلِكَ سَعَى بِيلاطُسُ أَنْ يُطْلِقَهُ، وَلَكِنَّ الْيَهُودَ صَرَخُوا: «إِنْ أَطْلَقْتَ هَذَا، فَلَسْتَ مُحِبّاً لِلْقَيْصَرِ. فَإِنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَجْعَلُ نَفْسَهُ مَلِكاً، يُعَادِي الْقَيْصَرَ».

13 فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ بِيلاطُسُ هَذَا الْكَلامَ، أَمَرَ بِإِخْرَاجِ يَسُوعَ، وَجَلَسَ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ الْقَضَاءِ فِي مَكَانٍ يُسَمَّى «الْبَلاطَ»، وَبِالْعِبْرِيَّةِ: «جَبَّاثَا». 14 وَكَانَ الْوَقْتُ نَحْوَ السَّادِسَةِ فِي يَوْمِ الإِعْدَادِ لِلْفِصْحِ. وَقَالَ بِيلاطُسُ لِلْيَهُودِ: «هَا هُوَ مَلِكُكُمْ!» 15 فَصَرَخُوا: «خُذْهُ! خُذْهُ! اصْلِبْهُ!» فَسَأَلَهُمْ بِيلاطُسُ: «أَأَصْلِبُ مَلِكَكُمْ؟» فَأَجَابَهُ رُؤَسَاءُ الْكَهَنَةِ: «لا مَلِكَ لَنَا إِلّا الْقَيْصَرَ». 16 فَسَلَّمَهُ بِيلاطُسُ إِلَيْهِمْ لِيُصْلَبَ.


فَأَخَذُوا يَسُوعَ. 17 فَخَرَجَ وَهُوَ حَامِلٌ صَلِيبَهُ إِلَى الْمَكَانِ الْمَعْرُوفِ بِمَكَانِ الْجُمْجُمَةِ، وَبِالْعِبْرِيَّةِ: «جُلْجُثَةِ»، 18 وَهُنَاكَ صَلَبُوهُ وَصَلَبُوا مَعَهُ رَجُلَيْنِ، وَاحِداً مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ، وَيَسُوعُ فِي الْوَسْطِ.

19 وَعَلَّقَ بِيلاطُسُ لافِتَةً عَلَى الصَّلِيبِ مَكْتُوباً عَلَيْهَا: «يَسُوعُ النَّاصِرِيُّ مَلِكُ الْيَهُودِ». 20 فَقَرَأَ اللّافِتَةَ كَثِيرُونَ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ، لأَنَّ الْمَكَانَ الَّذِي صُلِبَ يَسُوعُ فِيهِ كَانَ قَرِيباً مِنَ الْمَدِينَةِ. وَكَانَتِ اللّافِتَةُ مَكْتُوبَةً بِالْعِبْرِيَّةِ وَاللّاتِينِيَّةِ وَالْيُونَانِيَّةِ. 21 فَقَالَ رُؤَسَاءُ كَهَنَةِ الْيَهُودِ لِبِيلاطُسَ: «لا تَكْتُبْ: مَلِكُ الْيَهُودِ، بَلْ إِنَّ هَذَا الإِنْسَانَ قَالَ: أَنَا مَلِكُ الْيَهُودِ». 22 فَرَدَّ بِيلاطُسُ: «مَا كَتَبْتُ فَقَدْ كَتَبْتُ!»

23 وَلَمَّا صَلَبَ الْجُنُودُ يَسُوعَ أَخَذُوا ثِيَابَهُ وَقَسَّمُوهَا إِلَى أَرْبَعَةِ أَقْسَامٍ، فَأَخَذَ كُلُّ جُنْدِيٍّ قِسْماً. وَأَخَذُوا الْقَمِيصَ أَيْضاً، وَكَانَ مَنْسُوجاً كُلُّهُ مِنْ قِطْعَةٍ وَاحِدَةٍ، بِغَيْرِ خِيَاطَةٍ. 24 فَقَالَ الْجُنُودُ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «لا دَاعِيَ لِتَمْزِيقِهِ، بَلْ لِنَقْتَرِعْ عَلَيْهِ فَنَرَى مَنْ يَكْسِبُهُ!» وَقَدْ حَدَثَ ذلِكَ لِيَتِمَّ مَا جَاءَ فِي الْكِتَابِ: «اقْتَسَمُوا ثِيَابِي بَيْنَهُمْ، وَعَلَى قَمِيصِي اقْتَرَعُوا». وَهَذَا هُوَ مَا فَعَلَهُ الْجُنُودُ.

25 وَهُنَاكَ، عِنْدَ صَلِيبِ يَسُوعَ، وَقَفَتْ مَرْيَمُ أُمُّهُ، وَأُخْتُ أُمِّهِ مَرْيَمُ زَوْجَةُ كِلُوبَا؛ وَمَرْيَمُ الْمَجْدَلِيَّةُ. 26 فَلَمَّا رَأَى يَسُوعُ أُمَّهُ، وَالتِّلْمِيذَ الَّذِي كَانَ يُحِبُّهُ وَاقِفاً بِالْقُرْبِ مِنْهَا، قَالَ لأُمِّهِ: «أَيَّتُهَا الْمَرْأَةُ، هَذَا ابْنُكِ!» 27 ثُمَّ قَالَ لِلتِّلْمِيذِ: «هذِهِ أُمُّكَ». وَمُنْذُ ذلِكَ الْحِينِ أَخَذَهَا التِّلْمِيذُ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ.

موت يسوع

28 بَعْدَ هَذَا رَأَى يَسُوعُ أَنَّ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ قَدِ اكْتَمَلَ، فَقَالَ: «أَنَا عَطْشَانُ»، لِيَتِمَّ مَا جَاءَ فِي الْكِتَابِ. 29 وَكَانَ هُنَاكَ وِعَاءٌ مَلِيءٌ بِالْخَلِّ، فَغَمَسُوا فِي الْخَلِّ إِسْفِنْجَةً وَضَعُوهَا عَلَى زُوفَا، وَرَفَعُوهَا إِلَى فَمِهِ. 30 فَلَمَّا ذَاقَ يَسُوعُ الْخَلَّ، قَالَ: «قَدْ أُكْمِلَ!» ثُمَّ نَكَّسَ رَأْسَهُ وَأَسْلَمَ الرُّوحَ.

31 وَلَمَّا كَانَ الإِعْدَادُ يَتِمُّ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ، طَلَبَ الْيَهُودُ مِنْ بِيلاطُسَ أَنْ تُكْسَرَ سِيقَانُ الْمَصْلُوبِينَ، فَتُؤْخَذَ جُثَثُهُمْ لِئَلّا تَبْقَى مُعَلَّقَةً عَلَى الصَّلِيبِ يَوْمَ السَّبْتِ، وَلاسِيَّمَا لأَنَّ ذلِكَ السَّبْتَ كَانَ يَوْماً عَظِيماً. 32 فَجَاءَ الْجُنُودُ وَكَسَرُوا سَاقَيْ كِلا الرَّجُلَيْنِ الْمَصْلُوبَيْنِ مَعَ يَسُوعَ. 33 أَمَّا يَسُوعُ، فَلَمَّا وَصَلُوا إِلَيْهِ وَجَدُوهُ قَدْ مَاتَ، فَلَمْ يَكْسِرُوا سَاقَيْهِ. 34 وَإِنَّمَا طَعَنَهُ أَحَدُ الْجُنُودِ بِحَرْبَةٍ فِي جَنْبِهِ، فَخَرَجَ فِي الْحَالِ دَمٌ وَمَاءٌ. 35 وَالَّذِي رَأَى هَذَا هُوَ يَشْهَدُ، وَشَهَادَتُهُ حَقٌّ وَهُوَ يَعْلَمُ تَمَاماً أَنَّهُ يَقُولُ الْحَقَّ، لِكَيْ تُؤْمِنُوا أَنْتُمْ أَيْضاً. 36 وَقَدْ حَدَثَ هَذَا لِيَتِمَّ مَا جَاءَ فِي الْكِتَابِ: «لَنْ يُكْسَرَ مِنْهُ عَظْمٌ!» 37 وَقَدْ جَاءَ أَيْضاً فِي مَوْضِعٍ آخَرَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ: «سَيَنْظُرُونَ إِلَى ذَاكَ الَّذِي طَعَنُوهُ».

دفن جثمان يسوع

38 بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ طَلَبَ يُوسُفُ الَّذِي مِنَ الرَّامَةِ إِلَى بِيلاطُسَ أَنْ يَأْذَنَ لَهُ بِأَخْذِ جُثْمَانِ يَسُوعَ، وَكَانَ يُوسُفُ هَذَا تِلْمِيذاً لِيَسُوعَ وَلَكِنْ فِي السِّرِّ، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ خَائِفاً مِنَ الْيَهُودِ، فَأَذِنَ لَهُ بِيلاطُسُ. فَجَاءَ يُوسُفُ وَأَخَذَ جُثْمَانَ يَسُوعَ. 39 وَجَاءَ أَيْضاً نِيقُودِيمُوسُ الَّذِي كَانَ قَدْ أَتَى مِنْ قَبْلُ إِلَى يَسُوعَ لَيْلاً، وَأَحْضَرَ مَعَهُ حَوَالَيْ ثَلاثِينَ لِتْراً مِنْ طِيبِ الْمُرِّ الْمَخْلُوطِ بِالْعُودِ. 40 فَأَخَذَا جُثْمَانَ يَسُوعَ وَلَفَّاهُ بِأَكْفَانٍ مَعَ الطِّيبِ، كَمَا كَانَتْ عَادَةُ الْيَهُودِ فِي الدَّفْنِ. 41 وَكَانَ فِي الْمَكَانِ الَّذِي صُلِبَ يَسُوعُ فِيهِ بُسْتَانٌ، وَفِي الْبُسْتَانِ قَبْرٌ جَدِيدٌ، لَمْ يَسْبِقْ أَنْ دُفِنَ فِيهِ أَحَدٌ. 42 فَدَفَنَا يَسُوعَ فِي ذَلِكَ الْقَبْرِ لأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَرِيباً، وَلأَنَّ ذلِكَ الْيَوْمَ كَانَ يَوْمَ الإِعْدَادِ عِنْدَ الْيَهُودِ.

القبر الفارغ

20 وَفِي الْيَوْمِ الأَوَّلِ مِنَ الأُسْبُوعِ، بَكَّرَتْ مَرْيَمُ الْمَجْدَلِيَّةُ إِلَى قَبْرِ يَسُوعَ، وَالظَّلامُ مُخَيِّمٌ، فَرَأَتِ الْحَجَرَ قَدْ رُفِعَ عَنْ بَابِ الْقَبْرِ. فَأَسْرَعَتْ وَجَاءَتْ إِلَى سِمْعَانَ بُطْرُسَ وَالتِّلْمِيذِ الآخَرِ الَّذِي كَانَ يَسُوعُ يُحِبُّهُ وَقَالَتْ لَهُمَا: «أَخَذُوا الرَّبَّ مِنَ الْقَبْرِ، وَلا نَدْرِي أَيْنَ وَضَعُوهُ!» فَخَرَجَ بُطْرُسُ وَالتِّلْمِيذُ الآخَرُ وَتَوَجَّهَا إِلَى الْقَبْرِ. وَكَانَا يَرْكُضَانِ مَعاً. وَلكِنَّ التِّلْمِيذَ الآخَرَ سَبَقَ بُطْرُسَ فَوَصَلَ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ قَبْلَهُ، وَانْحَنَى فَرَأَى الأَكْفَانَ مُلْقَاةً عَلَى الأَرْضِ، وَلكِنَّهُ لَمْ يَدْخُلْ. ثُمَّ وَصَلَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ فِي إِثْرِهِ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ وَدَخَلَهُ، فَرَأَى أَيْضاً الأَكْفَانَ مُلْقَاةً عَلَى الأَرْضِ. وَالْمِنْدِيلُ الَّذِي كَانَ عَلَى رَأْسِ يَسُوعَ وَجَدَهُ مَلْفُوفاً وَحْدَهُ فِي مَكَانٍ مُنْفَصِلٍ عَنِ الأَكْفَانِ. عِنْدَ ذَلِكَ دَخَلَ التِّلْمِيذُ الآخَرُ، الَّذِي كَانَ قَدْ وَصَلَ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ أَوَّلاً، وَرَأَى فَآمَنَ. فَإِنَّ التَّلامِيذَ لَمْ يَكُونُوا حَتَّى ذَلِكَ الْوَقْتِ قَدْ فَهِمُوا أَنَّ الْكِتَابَ تَنَبَّأَ بِأَنَّهُ لابُدَّ أَنْ يَقُومَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ. 10 ثُمَّ رَجَعَ التِّلْمِيذَانِ إِلَى بَيْتِهِمَا.

11 أَمَّا مَرْيَمُ فَظَلَّتْ وَاقِفَةً فِي الْخَارِجِ تَبْكِي عِنْدَ الْقَبْرِ. وَفِيمَا هِيَ تَبْكِي، انْحَنَتْ إِلَى الْقَبْرِ. 12 فَرَأَتْ مَلاكَيْنِ بِثِيَابٍ بِيضٍ، جَالِسَيْنِ حَيْثُ كَانَ جُثْمَانُ يَسُوعَ مَوْضُوعاً، وَاحِداً عِنْدَ الرَّأْسِ وَالآخَرَ عِنْدَ الْقَدَمَيْنِ. 13 فَسَأَلاهَا: «يَا امْرَأَةُ، لِمَاذَا تَبْكِينَ؟» أَجَابَتْ: «أَخَذُوا سَيِّدِي، وَلا أَدْرِي أَيْنَ وَضَعُوهُ». 14 قَالَتْ هَذَا وَالْتَفَتَتْ إِلَى الْوَرَاءِ، فَرَأَتْ يَسُوعَ وَاقِفاً، وَلكِنَّهَا لَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ يَسُوعُ. 15 فَسَأَلَهَا: «يَا امْرَأَةُ، لِمَاذَا تَبْكِينَ؟ عَمَّنْ تَبْحَثِينَ؟» فَظَنَّتْ أَنَّهُ الْبُسْتَانِيُّ، فَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، إِنْ كُنْتَ أَنْتَ قَدْ أَخَذْتَهُ فَقُلْ لِي أَيْنَ وَضَعْتَهُ لِآخُذَهُ». 16 فَنَادَاهَا يَسُوعُ: «يَا مَرْيَمُ!» فَالْتَفَتَتْ وَهَتَفَتْ بِالْعِبْرِيَّةِ: «رَبُّونِي»، أَيْ: يَا مُعَلِّمُ. 17 فَقَالَ لَهَا: «لا تُمْسِكِي بِي! فَإِنِّي لَمْ أَصْعَدْ بَعْدُ إِلَى الآبِ، بَلِ اذْهَبِي إِلَى إِخْوَتِي وَقُولِي لَهُمْ: إِنِّي سَأَصْعَدُ إِلَى أَبِي وَأَبِيكُمْ، وَإِلَهِي وَإِلَهِكُمْ!» 18 فَرَجَعَتْ مَرْيَمُ الْمَجْدَلِيَّةُ وَبَشَّرَتِ التَّلامِيذَ قَائِلَةً: «إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ الرَّبَّ!» وَأَخْبَرَتْهُمْ بِمَا قَالَ لَهَا.

19 وَلَمَّا حَلَّ مَسَاءُ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ، وَهُوَ الْيَوْمُ الأَوَّلُ مِنَ الأُسْبُوعِ، كَانَ التَّلامِيذُ مُجْتَمِعِينَ فِي بَيْتٍ أَغْلَقُوا أَبْوَابَهُ خَوْفاً مِنَ الْيَهُودِ، وَإذَا يَسُوعُ يَحْضُرُ وَسْطَهُمْ قَائِلاً: «سَلامٌ لَكُمْ!» 20 وَإِذْ قَالَ هَذَا، أَرَاهُمْ يَدَيْهِ وَجَنْبَهُ، فَفَرِحَ التَّلامِيذُ إِذْ أَبْصَرُوا الرَّبَّ. 21 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «سَلامٌ لَكُمْ. كَمَا أَنَّ الآبَ أَرْسَلَنِي، أُرْسِلُكُمْ أَنَا». 22 قَالَ هَذَا وَنَفَخَ فِيهِمْ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «اقْبَلُوا الرُّوحَ الْقُدُسَ. 23 مَنْ غَفَرْتُمْ خَطَايَاهُمْ غُفِرَتْ لَهُمْ، وَمَنْ أَمْسَكْتُمْ خَطَايَاهُمْ، أُمْسِكَتْ!»

24 وَلكِنَّ تُومَا، أَحَدَ التَّلامِيذِ الاثَنْي عَشَرَ، وَهُوَ الْمَعْرُوفُ بِالتَّوْأَمِ، لَمْ يَكُنْ مَعَ التَّلامِيذِ، حِينَ حَضَرَ يَسُوعُ. 25 فَقَالَ لَهُ التَّلامِيذُ الآخَرُونَ: «إِنَّنَا رَأَيْنَا الرَّبَّ!» فَأَجَابَ: «إِنْ كُنْتُ لَا أَرَى أَثَرَ الْمَسَامِيرِ فِي يَدَيْهِ، وَأَضَعُ إِصْبِعِي فِي مَكَانِ الْمَسَامِيرِ، وَأَضَعُ يَدِي فِي جَنْبِهِ، فَلا أُومِنُ!»

26 وَبَعْدَ ثَمَانِيَةِ أَيَّامٍ، إِذْ كَانَ تَلامِيذُهُ مُجْتَمِعِينَ ثَانِيَةً دَاخِلَ الْبَيْتِ وَتُومَا مَعَهُمْ، حَضَرَ يَسُوعُ وَالأَبْوَابُ مُغَلَّقَةٌ، وَوَقَفَ فِي الْوَسَطِ وَقَالَ: «سَلامٌ لَكُمْ!» 27 ثُمَّ قَالَ لِتُومَا: «هَاتِ إِصْبَعَكَ إِلى هُنَا، وَانْظُرْ يَدَيَّ، وَهَاتِ يَدَكَ وَضَعْهَا فِي جَنْبِي. وَلا تَكُنْ غَيْرَ مُؤْمِنٍ بَلْ كُنْ مَؤْمِناً!» 28 فَهَتَفَ تُومَا: «رَبِّي وَإِلَهِي». 29 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «أَلأَنَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي آمَنْتَ؟ طُوبَى لِلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ دُونَ أَنْ يَرَوْا.»

الغرض من إنجيل يوحنا

30 وَقَدْ أَجْرَى يَسُوعُ أَمَامَ تَلامِيذِهِ آيَاتٍ أُخْرَى كَثِيرَةً لَمْ تُدَوَّنْ فِي الْكِتَابِ. 31 وَأَمَّا هَذِهِ الآيَاتُ فَقَدْ دُوِّنَتْ لِتؤْمِنُوا بِأَنَّ يَسُوعَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللهِ، وَلِكَيْ تَكُونَ لَكُمْ حَيَاةٌ بِاسْمِهِ إِذْ تُؤْمِنُونَ.

21 بَعْدَ ذلِكَ أَظْهَرَ يَسُوعُ نَفْسَهُ لِلتَّلامِيذِ مَرَّةً أُخْرَى عِنْدَ شَاطِئِ بُحَيْرَةِ طَبَرِيَّةَ. وَقَدْ أَظْهَرَ نَفْسَهُ هَكَذَا: اجْتَمَعَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ وَتُومَا، الْمَعْرُوفُ بِالتَّوْأَمِ، وَنَثَنَائِيلُ، وَهَوَ مِنْ قَانَا بِمِنْطَقَةِ الْجَليلِ، وَابْنَا زَبَدِي، وَتِلْمِيذَانِ آخَرَانِ. فَقَالَ لَهُمْ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ: «أَنَا ذَاهِبٌ لِلصَّيْدِ!» فَقَالُوا: «وَنَحْنُ أَيْضاً نَذْهَبُ مَعَكَ». فَذَهَبُوا وَرَكِبُوا الْقَارِبَ، وَلكِنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَصِيدُوا شَيْئاً فِي تِلْكَ اللَّيْلَةِ. وَلَمَّا طَلَعَ الْفَجْرُ، وَقَفَ يَسُوعُ عَلَى الشَّاطِئِ، وَلكِنَّ التَّلامِيذَ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا أَنَّهُ يَسُوعُ. فَسَأَلَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «يَا فِتْيَانُ، أَمَا عِنْدَكُمْ سَمَكٌ؟» أَجَابُوهُ: «لا!» فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَلْقُوا الشَّبَكَةَ إِلَى يَمِينِ الْقَارِبِ، تَجِدُوا!» فَأَلْقَوْهَا، وَلَمْ يَعُودُوا يَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ يَجْذِبُوهَا لِكَثْرَةِ مَا فِيهَا مِنَ السَّمَكِ! فَقَالَ التِّلْمِيذُ الَّذِي كَانَ يَسُوعُ يُحِبُّهُ، لِبُطْرُسَ: «إِنَّهُ الرَّبُّ!» وَكَانَ بُطْرُسُ عُرْيَاناً، فَمَا إِنْ سَمِعَ أَنَّ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الرَّبُّ، حَتَّى تَسَتَّرَ بِرِدَائِهِ، وَأَلْقَى نَفْسَهُ فِي الْمَاءِ سَابِحاً. وَجَاءَ بَاقِي التَّلامِيذِ بِالْقَارِبِ وَهُمْ يَجُرُّونَ شَبَكَةَ السَّمَكِ، إِذْ كَانُوا غَيْرَ بَعِيدِينَ عَنِ الشَّاطِئِ إِلّا نَحْوَ مِئَتَيْ ذِرَاعٍ. فَلَمَّا نَزَلُوا إِلَى الشَّاطِئِ، رَأَوْا هُنَاكَ جَمْراً وَسَمَكاً مَوْضُوعاً عَلَيْهِ، وَخُبْزاً. 10 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «هَاتُوا مِنَ السَّمَكِ الَّذِي صِدْتُمُوهُ الآنَ!» 11 فَصَعِدَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ إِلَى الْقَارِبِ وَجَذَبَ الشَّبَكَةَ إِلَى الْبَرِّ، فَإِذَا فِيهَا مِئَةٌ وَثَلاثٌ وَخَمْسُونَ سَمَكَةً مِنَ السَّمَكِ الْكَبِيرِ، وَمَعَ هذِهِ الْكَثْرَةِ لَمْ تَتَمَزَّقِ الشَّبَكَةُ. 12 وَقَالَ يَسُوعُ لِلتَّلاميِذِ: «تَعَالَوْا كُلُوا». وَلَمْ يَجْرُؤْ أَحَدٌ مِنَ التَّلامِيذِ أَنْ يَسْأَلَهُ: مَنْ أَنْتَ؟ لأَنَّهُمْ عَرَفُوا أَنَّهُ الرَّبُّ. 13 ثُمَّ تَقَدَّمَ يَسُوعُ وَأَخَذَ الْخُبْزَ وَنَاوَلَهُمْ، وَكَذلِكَ السَّمَكَ. 14 هذِهِ هِيَ الْمَرَّةُ الثَّالِثَةُ الَّتِي أَظْهَرَ فِيهَا يَسُوعُ نَفْسَهُ لِتَلامِيذِهِ بَعْدَمَا قَامَ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ.

المسيح يتحدث إلى بطرس

15 وَبَعْدَمَا أَكَلُوا سَأَلَ يَسُوعُ سِمْعَانَ بُطْرُسَ: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا يُحِبُّنِي هؤُلاءِ؟» فَأَجَابَهُ «نَعَمْ يَا رَبُّ، أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ!» فَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَطْعِمْ حُمْلانِي!» 16 ثُمَّ سَأَلَهُ ثَانِيَةً: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي؟» فَأَجَابَهُ: «نَعَمْ يَا رَبُّ. أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ!» قَالَ لَهُ: «ارْعَ خِرَافِي» 17 فَسَأَلَهُ مَرَّةً ثَالِثَةً: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي؟» فَحَزِنَ بُطْرُسُ لأَنَّ يَسُوعَ قَالَ لَهُ فِي الْمَرَّةِ الثَّالِثَةِ: «أَتُحِبُّنِي». وَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَا رَبُّ، أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ. أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ!» فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «أَطْعِمْ خِرَافِي! 18 الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكَ: إِنَّكَ لَمَّا كُنْتَ شَابّاً كُنْتَ تَرْبِطُ حِزَامَكَ عَلَى وَسَطِكَ وَتَذْهَبُ حَيْثُ تُرِيدُ. وَلكِنْ عِنْدَمَا تَصِيرُ شَيْخاً فَإِنَّكَ تَمُدُّ يَدَيْكَ، وَآخَرُ يَرْبُطُ حِزَامَكَ وَيَذْهَبُ بِكَ حَيْثُ لَا تُرِيدُ!» 19 وَقَدْ قَالَ يَسُوعُ هَذَا إِشَارَةً إِلَى الْمِيتَةِ الَّتِي سَوْفَ يَمُوتُهَا بُطْرُسُ فَيُمَجِّدُ بِها اللهَ. وَلَمَّا قَالَ لَهُ ذلِكَ، قَالَ لَهُ: «اتْبَعْنِي».

20 وَنَظَرَ بُطْرُسُ وَرَاءَهُ، فَرَأَى التِّلْمِيذَ الَّذِي كَانَ يَسُوعُ يُحِبُّهُ يَتْبَعُهُمَا، وَهُوَ التِّلْمِيذُ الَّذِي مَالَ إِلَى صَدْرِ يَسُوعَ فِي أَثْنَاءِ الْعَشَاءِ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، مَنْ هُوَ الَّذِي سَيَخُونُكَ؟» 21 فَلَمَّا رَآهُ بُطْرُسُ سَأَلَ يَسُوعَ: «يَا رَبُّ وَهَذَا، مَاذَا يَكُونُ لَهُ؟» 22 أَجَابَهُ يَسُوعُ: «لَوْ شِئْتُ أَنْ يَبْقَى حَتَّى أَرْجِعَ، فَمَا شَأْنُكَ؟ اتْبَعْنِي أَنْتَ!» 23 فَشَاعَ خَبَرٌ بَيْنَ الإِخْوَةِ أَنَّ ذَلِكَ التِّلْمِيذَ لَنْ يَمُوتَ. وَلكِنَّ يَسُوعَ لَمْ يَقُلْ لِبُطْرُسَ: «إِنَّهُ لَنْ يَمُوتَ!» بَلْ قَالَ: «لَوْ شِئْتُ أَنْ يَبْقَى حَتَّى أَرْجِعَ، فَمَا شَأْنُكَ؟»

24 هَذَا التِّلْمِيذُ هُوَ الَّذِي يَشْهَدُ بِهذِهِ الأُمُورِ، وَقَدْ دَوَّنَهَا هُنَا. وَنَحْنُ نَعْلَمُ أَنَّ شَهَادَتَهُ حَقٌّ.

25 وَهُنَاكَ أُمُورٌ أُخْرَى كَثِيرَةٌ عَمِلَهَا يَسُوعُ، أَظُنُّ أَنَّهَا لَوْ دُوِّنَتْ وَاحِدَةً فَوَاحِدَةً، لَمَا كَانَ الْعَالَمُ كُلُّهُ يَسَعُ مَا دُوِّنَ مِنْ كُتُبٍ!

The Resurrection of Christ

15 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel(A) I preached to you,(B) which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved,(C) if you hold firmly(D) to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

For what I received(E) I passed on to you(F) as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins(G) according to the Scriptures,(H) that he was buried,(I) that he was raised(J) on the third day(K) according to the Scriptures,(L) and that he appeared to Cephas,[b](M) and then to the Twelve.(N) After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.(O) Then he appeared to James,(P) then to all the apostles,(Q) and last of all he appeared to me also,(R) as to one abnormally born.

For I am the least of the apostles(S) and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted(T) the church of God.(U) 10 But by the grace(V) of God I am what I am, and his grace to me(W) was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them(X)—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.(Y) 11 Whether, then, it is I or they,(Z) this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

The Resurrection of the Dead

12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead,(AA) how can some of you say that there is no resurrection(AB) of the dead?(AC) 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised,(AD) our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead.(AE) But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.(AF) 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep(AG) in Christ are lost. 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.(AH)

20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead,(AI) the firstfruits(AJ) of those who have fallen asleep.(AK) 21 For since death came through a man,(AL) the resurrection of the dead(AM) comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.(AN) 23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits;(AO) then, when he comes,(AP) those who belong to him.(AQ) 24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom(AR) to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.(AS) 25 For he must reign(AT) until he has put all his enemies under his feet.(AU) 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.(AV) 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.”[c](AW) Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.(AX) 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him,(AY) so that God may be all in all.(AZ)

29 Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them? 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour?(BA) 31 I face death every day(BB)—yes, just as surely as I boast about you in Christ Jesus our Lord. 32 If I fought wild beasts(BC) in Ephesus(BD) with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised,

“Let us eat and drink,
    for tomorrow we die.”[d](BE)

33 Do not be misled:(BF) “Bad company corrupts good character.”[e](BG) 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God(BH)—I say this to your shame.(BI)

The Resurrection Body

35 But someone will ask,(BJ) “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?”(BK) 36 How foolish!(BL) What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.(BM) 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.(BN) 39 Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. 41 The sun has one kind of splendor,(BO) the moon another and the stars another;(BP) and star differs from star in splendor.

42 So will it be(BQ) with the resurrection of the dead.(BR) The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;(BS) 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory;(BT) it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

قيامة المسيح

15 عَلَى أَنِّي أُذَكِّرُكُمْ، أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ بِالإِنْجِيلِ الَّذِي بَشَّرْتُكُمْ بِهِ، وَقَبِلْتُمُوهُ وَمَازِلْتُمْ قَائِمِينَ فِيهِ، وَبِهِ أَيْضاً أَنْتُمْ مُخَلَّصُونَ، إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَتَمَسَّكُونَ بِالْكَلِمَةِ الَّتِي بَشَّرْتُكُمْ بِها، إِلّا إِذَا كُنْتُمْ قَدْ آمَنْتُمْ عَبَثاً. فَالْوَاقِعُ أَنِّي سَلَّمْتُكُمْ، فِي أَوَّلِ الأَمْرِ، مَا كُنْتُ قَدْ تَسَلَّمْتُهُ، وَهُوَ أَنَّ الْمَسِيحَ مَاتَ مِنْ أَجْلِ خَطَايَانَا وَفْقاً لِمَا فِي الْكُتُبِ، وَأَنَّهُ دُفِنَ، وَأَنَّهُ قَامَ فِي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ وَفْقاً لِمَا فِي الْكُتُبِ، وَأَنَّهُ ظَهَرَ لِبُطْرُسَ، ثُمَّ لِلاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ. وَبَعْدَ ذلِكَ ظَهَرَ لأَكْثَرَ مِنْ خَمْسِ مِئَةِ أَخٍ مَعاً مَازَالَ مُعْظَمُهُمْ حَيًّا، فِي حِينِ رَقَدَ الآخَرُونَ. ثُمَّ ظَهَرَ لِيَعْقُوبَ، وَبَعْدَ ذلِكَ لِلرُّسُلِ جَمِيعاً. وَآخِرَ الْجَمِيعِ، ظَهَرَ لِي أَنَا أَيْضاً، وَكَأَنِّي طِفْلٌ وُلِدَ فِي غَيْرِ أَوَانِهِ! فَإِنِّي أَنَا أَصْغَرُ الرُّسُلِ شَأْناً، وَلَسْتُ أَهْلاً لأَنْ أُدْعَى رَسُولاً لأَنِّي اضْطَهَدْتُ كَنِيسَةَ اللهِ. 10 وَلكِنْ، بِنِعْمَةِ اللهِ صِرْتُ عَلَى مَا أَنَا عَلَيْهِ الآنَ، وَنِعْمَتُهُ الْمَوْهُوبَةُ لِي لَمْ تَكُنْ عَبَثاً، إِذْ عَمِلْتُ جَاهِداً أَكْثَرَ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ الآخَرِينَ جَمِيعاً. إِلّا أَنِّي لَمْ أَكُنْ أَنَا الْعَامِلَ، بَلْ نِعْمَةُ اللهِ الَّتِي كَانَتْ مَعِي. 11 وَسَوَاءٌ أَكُنْتُ أَنَا أَمْ كَانُوا هُمْ، فَهكَذَا نُبَشِّرُ، وَهكَذَا آمَنْتُمْ.

قيامة الأموات

12 وَالآنَ، مَادَامَ يُبَشَّرُ بِأَنَّ الْمَسِيحَ قَامَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ، فَكَيْفَ يَقُولُ بَعْضُكُمْ إِنَّهُ لَا قِيَامَةَ لِلأَمْوَاتِ؟ 13 فَإِنْ كَانَتْ قِيَامَةُ الأَمْوَاتِ غَيْرَ مَوْجُودَةٍ، فَمَعْنَى ذَلِكَ أَنَّ الْمَسِيحَ لَمْ يَقُمْ أَيْضاً! 14 وَلَوْ لَمْ يَكُنِ الْمَسِيحُ قَدْ قَامَ، لَكَانَ تَبْشِيرُنَا عَبَثاً وَإِيمَانُكُمْ عَبَثاً، 15 وَلَكَانَ تَبَيَّنَ عِنْدَئِذٍ أَنَّنَا شُهُودُ زُورٍ عَلَى اللهِ، إِذْ إِنَّنَا شَهِدْنَا عَلَى اللهِ أَنَّهُ أَقَامَ الْمَسِيحَ، وَهُوَ لَمْ يُقِمْهُ لَوْ صَحَّ أَنَّ الأَمْوَاتَ لَا يُقَامُونَ. 16 إِذَنْ، لَوْ كَانَ الأَمْوَاتُ لَا يُقَامُونَ، لَكَانَ الْمَسِيحُ لَمْ يَقُمْ أَيْضاً. 17 وَلَوْ لَمْ يَكُنِ الْمَسِيحُ قَدْ قَامَ، لَكَانَ إِيمَانُكُمْ عَبَثاً، وَلَكُنْتُمْ بَعْدُ فِي خَطَايَاكُمْ، 18 وَلَكَانَ الَّذِينَ رَقَدُوا فِي الْمَسِيحِ قَدْ هَلَكُوا! 19 وَلَوْ كَانَ رَجَاؤُنَا فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَقْتَصِرُ عَلَى هَذِهِ الْحَيَاةِ، لَكُنَّا أَشْقَى النَّاسِ جَمِيعاً! 20 أَمَّا الآنَ فَالْمَسِيحُ قَدْ قَامَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ بِكْراً لِلرَّاقِدِينَ. 21 فَبِمَا أَنَّ الْمَوْتَ كَانَ بِإِنْسَانٍ، فَإِنَّ قِيَامَةَ الأَمْوَاتِ أَيْضاً تَكُونُ بِإِنْسَانٍ. 22 فَإِنَّهُ، كَمَا يَمُوتُ الْجَمِيعُ فِي آدَمَ، فَكَذَلِكَ سَيَحْيَى الْجَمِيعُ فِي الْمَسِيحِ، 23 عَلَى أَنَّ لِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ رُتْبَتَهُ: فَأَوَّلاً الْمَسِيحُ بِصِفَتِهِ الْبِكْرَ؛ وَبَعْدَهُ خَاصَّتُهُ لَدَى رُجُوعِهِ، 24 وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ الآخِرَةُ حِينَ يُسَلِّمُ الْمَسِيحُ الْمُلْكَ لِلهِ الآبِ بَعْدَ أَنْ يَكُونَ قَدْ أَبَادَ كُلَّ رَئَاسَةٍ وَكُلَّ سُلْطَةٍ وَكُلَّ قُوَّةٍ. 25 فَإِنَّهُ لابُدَّ أَنْ يَمْلِكَ «إِلَى أَنْ يَضَعَ جَمِيعَ الأَعْدَاءِ تَحْتَ قَدَمَيْهِ». 26 وَآخِرُ عَدُوٍّ يُبَادُ هُوَ الْمَوْتُ، 27 ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُ قَدْ «أَخْضَعَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ تَحْتَ قَدَمَيْهِ». وَلَكِنْ، فِي قَوْلِهِ إِنَّ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ قَدْ أُخْضِعَ، فَمِنَ الْوَاضِحِ أَنَّهُ يَسْتَثْنِي اللهَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَاضِعاً لِلابْنِ. 28 وَعِنْدَمَا يَتِمُّ إِخْضَاعُ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ لِلابْنِ، فَإِنَّ الابْنَ نَفْسَهُ سَيَخْضَعُ لِلَّذِي أَخْضَعَ لَهُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ، لِكَيْ يَكُونَ اللهُ هُوَ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ!

29 وَالآنَ، إِنْ صَحَّ أَنَّ الأَمْوَاتَ لَا يَقُومُونَ أَبَداً، فَمَا مَعْنَى مَا يَفْعَلُهُ الَّذِينَ يَعْتَمِدُونَ بَدَلَ الَّذِينَ يَمُوتُونَ؟ لِمَاذَا إِذَنْ يَعْتَمِدُونَ بَدَلاً مِنْهُمْ؟ 30 وَلِمَاذَا نُعَرِّضُ نَحْنُ أَنْفُسَنَا لِلْخَطَرِ كُلَّ سَاعَةٍ؟ 31 فَبِحَسَبِ افْتِخَارِي بِكُمْ فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ رَبِّنَا، أَشْهَدُ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ أَنِّي أَمُوتُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ! 32 وَلَوْ كُنْتُ بِمَنْطِقِ الْبَشَرِ قَدْ تَعَرَّضْتُ لِلْمَوْتِ فِي أَفَسُسَ بَيْنَ مَخَالِبِ الْوُحُوشِ، فَأَيُّ نَفْعٍ يَعُودُ عَلَيَّ إِنْ كَانَ الَّذِينَ يَمُوتُونَ لَا يَقُومُونَ؟ وَلِمَ لَا «نَأْكُلُ وَنَشْرَبُ، لأَنَّنَا غَداً نَمُوتُ؟» 33 لَا تَنْقَادُوا إِلَى الضَّلالِ: إِنَّ الْمُعَاشَرَاتِ الرَّدِيئَةَ تُفْسِدُ الأَخْلاقَ الْجَيِّدَةَ! 34 عُودُوا إِلَى الصَّوَابِ كَمَا يَجِبُ وَلا تُخْطِئُوا، فَإِنَّ بَعْضاً مِنْكُمْ يَجْهَلُونَ اللهَ تَمَاماً أَقُولُ هَذَا لِكَيْ تَخْجَلُوا!

35 وَلَكِنَّ أَحَداً قَدْ يَقُولُ: «كَيْفَ يُقَامُ الأَمْوَاتُ؟ وَبِأَيِّ جِسْمٍ يَعُودُونَ؟» 36 يَا غَافِلُ! إِنَّ مَا تَزْرَعُهُ لَا يَحْيَا إِلّا بَعْدَ أَنْ يَمُوتَ. 37 وَمَا تَزْرَعُهُ لَيْسَ هُوَ الْجِسْمَ الَّذِي سَيَطْلُعُ بَلْ مُجَرَّدُ حَبَّةٍ مِنَ الْحِنْطَةِ مَثَلاً أَوْ غَيْرِهَا مِنَ البُزُورِ. 38 ثُمَّ يُعْطِيهَا اللهُ الْجِسْمَ الَّذِي يُرِيدُ، كَمَا يُعْطِي كُلَّ نَوْعٍ مِنَ الْبُزُورِ جِسْمَهُ الْخَاصَّ. 39 وَلَيْسَ لِلأَجْسَادِ كُلِّهَا شَكْلٌ وَاحِدٌ بَلْ لِلنَّاسِ جَسَدٌ وَلِلْحَيَوَانَاتِ جَسَدٌ آخَرُ وَلِلسَّمَكِ آخَرُ وَلِلطَّيْرِ آخَرُ. 40 ثُمَّ إِنَّ هُنَاكَ أَجْسَاماً سَمَاوِيَّةً وَأَجْسَاماً أَرْضِيَّةً. وَلَكِنَّ الأَجْسَامَ السَّمَاوِيَّةَ لَهَا بَهَاءٌ، وَالأَرْضِيَّةَ لَهَا بَهَاءٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ. 41 فَالشَّمْسُ لَهَا بَهَاءٌ، وَالْقَمَرُ لَهُ بَهَاءٌ آخَرُ، وَالنُّجُومُ لَهَا بَهَاءٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ، لأَنَّ كُلَّ نَجْمٍ يَخْتَلِفُ عَنِ الآخَرِ بِبَهَائِهِ. 42 وَهَكَذَا الْحَالُ فِي قِيَامَةِ الأَمْوَاتِ: يُزْرَعُ الْجَسَدُ مُنْحَلًّا، وَيُقَامُ غَيْرَ مُنْحَلٍّ، 43 يُزْرَعُ مُهَاناً، وَيُقَامُ مَجِيداً، يُزْرَعُ ضَعِيفاً، وَيُقَامُ قَوِيًّا، 44 يُزْرَعُ جِسْماً مَادِّيًّا، وَيُقَامُ جِسْماً رُوحِيًّا. فَبِمَا أَنَّ هُنَاكَ جِسْماً مَادِّيًّا، فَهُنَاكَ أَيْضاً جِسْمٌ رُوحِيٌّ. 45 فَهكَذَا أَيْضاً قَدْ كُتِبَ: «صَارَ الإِنْسَانُ الأَوَّلُ، آدَمُ، نَفْساً حَيَّةً» وَأَمَّا آدَمُ الأَخِيرُ فَهُوَ روحٌ بَاعِثٌ لِلْحَيَاةِ. 46 عَلَى أَنَّ الرُّوحِيَّ لَمْ يَكُنْ أَوَّلاً، بَلْ جَاءَ الْمَادِّيُّ أَوَّلاً ثُمَّ الرُّوحِيُّ: 47 الإِنْسَانُ الأَوَّلُ مِنَ الأَرْضِ وَقَدْ صُنِعَ مِنَ التُّرَابِ؛ أَمَّا الإِنْسَانُ الثَّانِي فَهُوَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ. 48 فَعَلَى مِثَالِ الْمَصْنُوعِ مِنَ التُّرَابِ، سَيَكُونُ الْمَصْنُوعُونَ مِنَ التُّرَابِ، وَعَلَى مِثَالِ السَّمَاوِيِّ سَيَكُونُ السَّمَاوِيُّونَ. 49 وَمِثْلَمَا حَمَلْنَا صُورَةَ الْمَصْنُوعِ مِنَ التُّرَابِ، سَنَحْمِلُ أَيْضاً صُورَةَ السَّمَاوِيِّ.

50 ثُمَّ إِنِّي، أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ، أُؤَكِّدُ لَكُمْ أَنَّ الأَجْسَامَ ذَاتَ اللَّحْمِ وَالدَّمِ لَا يُمْكِنُهَا أَنْ تَرِثَ مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ، كَمَا لَا يُمْكِنُ لِلْمُنْحَلِّ أَنْ يَرِثَ غَيْرَ الْمُنْحَلِّ.

51 وَهَا أَنَا أَكْشِفُ لَكُمْ سِرّاً: إِنَّنَا لَنْ نَرْقُدَ جَمِيعاً، وَلَكِنَّنَا سَنَتَغَيَّرُ جَمِيعاً، 52 فِي لَحْظَةٍ، بَلْ فِي طَرْفَةِ عَيْنٍ عِنْدَمَا يُنْفَخُ فِي الْبُوقِ الأَخِيرِ. فَإِنَّهُ سَوْفَ يُنْفَخُ فِي الْبُوقِ، فَيَقُومُ الأَمْوَاتُ بِلا انْحِلالٍ. وَأَمَّا نَحْنُ، فَسَنَتَغَيَّرُ. 53 فَلابُدَّ لِهَذَا الْجِسْمِ الْقَابِلِ لِلانْحِلالِ أَنْ يَلْبَسَ عَدَمَ انْحِلالٍ، وَلِهَذَا الْفَانِي أَنْ يَلْبَسَ خُلُوداً. 54 وَبَعْدَ أَنْ يَلْبَسَ هَذَا الْمُنْحَلُّ عَدَمَ انْحِلالٍ، وَهَذَا الْفَانِي خُلُوداً، تَتِمُّ الْكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي قَدْ كُتِبَتْ: «ابْتُلِعَ الْمَوْتُ فِي النَّصْرِ!» 55 فَأَيْنَ، يَا مَوْتُ، شَوْكَتُكَ؟ وَأَيْنَ، يَا مَوْتُ نَصْرُكَ؟ 56 وَشَوْكَةُ الْمَوْتِ إِنَّمَا هِيَ الْخَطِيئَةُ، وَقُوَّةُ الْخَطِيئَةِ إِنَّمَا هِيَ الشَّرِيعَةُ. 57 وَلَكِنِ الشُّكْرُ لِلهِ الَّذِي يَمْنَحُنَا النَّصْرَ بِرَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ! 58 إِذَنْ، يَا إِخْوَتِي الأَحِبَّاءَ، كُونُوا رَاسِخِينَ غَيْرَ مُتَزَحْزِحِينَ، كَثِيرِي الاجْتِهَادِ فِي عَمَلِ الرَّبِّ دَائِماً، عَالِمِينَ أَنَّ جَهْدَكُمْ فِي الرَّبِّ لَيْسَ عَبَثاً!
