Luke 24 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
24 Now upon the first day of the week very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared; and certain others were with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher.
3 And they entered in and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments.
5 And as they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, “Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke unto you when He was yet in Galilee,
7 saying, ‘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 sepulcher and told all these things unto the eleven and to all the rest.
10 It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and other women who were with them, who told these things unto the apostles.
11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
12 Then arose Peter and ran unto the sepulcher; and stooping down, he beheld the linen cloths laid by themselves. And he departed, wondering to himself at that which had come to pass.
13 And behold, two of them were going that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about seven miles.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 And it came to pass that while they communed and reasoned together, Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
16 But their eyes were held, that they should not know Him.
17 And He said unto them, “What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another as ye walk and are sad?”
18 And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto Him, “Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which have come to pass there in these days?”
19 And He said unto them, “What things?” And they said unto Him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;
20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death and have crucified Him.
21 But we trusted that it had been He who should have redeemed Israel. And besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done.
22 Yea, and certain women also of our company, who were early at the sepulcher, made us astonished.
23 And when they found not His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive.
24 And certain of those who were with us went to the sepulcher and found it even so as the women had said, but Him they saw not.”
25 Then He said unto them, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”
27 And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
28 And they drew nigh unto the village whither they were going, and He made as though He would have gone further.
29 But they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening and the day is far spent.” And He went in to tarry with them.
30 And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread and blessed it, and broke and gave it to them.
31 And their eyes were opened and they knew Him. And He vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said to one another, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us on the way and while He opened to us the Scriptures?”
33 And they rose up that same hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them,
34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed and hath appeared to Simon!”
35 And they told what things were done on the way, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.
36 And as they thus spoke, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them and said unto them, “Peace be unto you.”
37 But they were terrified and afraid, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And He said unto them, “Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me to have.”
40 And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and His feet.
41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, “Have ye here any meat?”
42 And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb.
43 And He took it and ate before them.
44 And He said unto them, “These are the words which I spoke unto you while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms concerning Me.”
45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures,
46 and said unto them, “Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
49 And behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you; but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem until ye be endued with power from on high.”
50 And He led them out as far as to Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
51 And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them and carried up into Heaven.
52 And they worshiped Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
John 20-21 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
20 On the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher and saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher.
2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said unto them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him!”
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher.
4 And they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came first to the sepulcher.
5 And stooping down and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he went not in.
6 Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher and saw the linen cloths as they lay
7 and the napkin that had been about His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then the other disciple, who came first to the sepulcher, went in also; and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11 But Mary stood outside at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher,
12 and saw two angels in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou?” She said unto them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.”
14 And when she had thus said, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, “Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said unto her, “Mary!” She turned herself and said unto Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, “Master”).
17 Jesus said unto her, “Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say unto them, ‘I ascend unto My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her.
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in their midst and said unto them, “Peace be unto you.”
20 And when He had so said, He showed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, “Peace be unto you. As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you.”
22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.
23 Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.”
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said unto them, “Unless I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days the disciples were again within, and Thomas was with them. Then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be unto you.”
27 Then said He to Thomas, “Reach hither thy finger and behold My hands, and reach hither thy hand and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing.”
28 And Thomas answered and said unto Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said unto him, “Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed. Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.”
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book.
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, ye might have life through His name.
21 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way showed He Himself:
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples.
3 Simon Peter said unto them, “I am going fishing.” They said unto him, “We also go with thee.” They went forth and entered into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus said unto them, “Children, have ye any meat?” And they answered Him, “No.”
6 And He said unto them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find.” They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said unto Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his fisher’s coat unto him (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little boat (for they were not far from land, but, as it were, two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fishes.
9 As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon and bread.
10 Jesus said unto them, “Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.”
11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty three; and though there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
12 Jesus said unto them, “Come and dine.” And none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who art Thou?” knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then came and took bread and gave it to them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me more than these?” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He said unto him, “Feed My lambs.”
16 He said to him again the second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me?” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He said unto him, “Feed My sheep.”
17 He said unto him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me?” Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, “Lovest thou Me?” And he said unto Him, “Lord, Thou knowest all things. Thou knowest that I love Thee.” Jesus said unto him, “Feed My sheep.
18 Verily, verily I say unto thee, when thou wast young, thou girded thyself and walked whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.”
19 This spoke He, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said unto him, “Follow Me.”
20 Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at supper, and said, “Lord, who is he that betrayeth Thee?”
21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “Lord, and what shall this man do?”
22 Jesus said unto him, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou Me.”
23 Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. Yet Jesus had not said unto him, “He shall not die,” but, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?”
24 This is the disciple who testifieth of these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
