The Empty Tomb...
And on the first day of the week Miryam from Magdala came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
So she ran and came to Shim`on Kepha, and to the other taught one whom Yahushua loved, and said to them, `They have taken the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they laid Him.`
Then Kepha and the other taught one went out, and they were going to the tomb,
and the two were running together, but the other taught one outran Kepha and came to the tomb first.
And stooping down he saw the linen wrappings lying, but he did not go in.
Then Shim'on Kepha came, following him, and went into the tomb. And he saw the linen wrappings lying,
and the cloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but folded up in a place by itself.
So, then, the other taught one, who came to the tomb first, also went in. And he saw and believed.
For they did not yet know the Scripture, that He has to rise again from the dead.
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene...
Therefore the taught ones went away again, by themselves.
But Miryam was standing outside by the tomb weeping. Then as she wept, she stooped down to the tomb,
and saw two messengers in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Yahushua had been laid.
And they said to her, 'Woman, why do you weep?' She said to them, 'Because they took away my Master, and I do not know where they laid Him.'
And having said this, she turned around and saw Yahushua standing, but she did not know that it was Yahushua.
Yahushua said to her, 'Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?' Thinking He was the gardener, she said to Him, 'Master, if You have carried Him away, say to me where You put Him, and I shall take Him away.'
Yahushua said to her, 'Miryam!' She turned and said to Him, 'Rabboni!' (which means Teacher).
Yahushua said to her, `Do not hold on to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go to My brothers and say to them, `I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My Elohim and your Elohim.``
Miryam from Magdala came announcing to the taught ones that she had seen the Master, and that He had told her this.
Jesus Appears to His Disciples...
When therefore it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the taught ones met, for fear of the Yehudim, Yahushua came and stood in the midst, and said to them, `Peace to you.`
And having said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The taught ones therefore rejoiced when they saw the Master.
Then Yahushua said to them again, `Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.`
And having said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, 'Receive the Set-apart Spirit.
'If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.'
Jesus Appears to Thomas...
But T`oma, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Yahushua came,
so the other taught ones said to him, 'We have seen the Master.' But he said to them, 'Unless I see in His hands the mark of the nails, and put my finger into the imprint of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I shall by no means believe.'
And after eight days His taught ones were again inside, and T'oma with them. Yahushua came, the doors having been shut, and He stood in the midst, and said, 'Peace to you!'
Then He said to T'oma, 'Bring your finger here, and see My hands. And bring your hand and put it into My side - and do not be unbelieving, but believing.'
And T`oma answered and said to Him, `My Master and my Elohim!`
Yahushua said to him, 'T'oma, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.'
There were indeed many other signs that Yahushua did in the presence of His taught ones, which are not written in this book,
but these have been written so that you believe that Yahushua is the Messiah, the Son of Elohim, and that, believing, you might possess life in His Name.
