The Resurrection of Jesus
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and other disciple, The one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him'. Then Peter and the other disciples set out and went towards the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciples outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bentdown to look in and saw the linen wrapping lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter come, following him, and wento into the tomb. He saw the linen wrapping lying there and the cloth that had been on Jesus head, not lying with the linen wrapping but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples returned to their homes.
But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb; and saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying one on the head and other at the feet. They said to her, 'Woman why are you weeping?' She said to them, 'They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they had laid him'. When she had said this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, 'Woman, why are you weeping? Fpr whom are you looking?' Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, 'Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away'. Jesus said to her, 'Mary!', She turned and said to him in Hebrew, 'Rabboun!' (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, 'Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."' Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, 'I have seen the Lord'; and she told them the he had said these things to her.
