24 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead?6 He is not here, but He has [a]risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.”8 And they remembered His words,9 and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.11 But these words appeared [b]to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he *saw the linen wrappings [c]only; and he went away to his home, marveling at what had happened.
36 While they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be to you.”37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.38 And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your [a]hearts?39 See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.”40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.41 While they still [b]could not believe it because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”42 They gave Him a piece of a broiled fish;43 and He took it and ate it before them.
44 Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”45 Then He opened their [c]minds to understand the Scriptures,46 and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the [d]Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,47 and that repentance [e]for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed [f]in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.48 You are witnesses of these things.
