Weymouth Bible – John Chapter 20

John 20:1
On the first day of the week, very early, while it was still dark, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from it.

John 20:2
So she ran, as fast as she could, to find Simon Peter and the other disciple–the one who was dear to Jesus–and to tell them, “They have taken the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have put Him.”

John 20:3
Peter and the other disciple started at once to go to the tomb, both of them running,

John 20:4
but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and reached it before he did.

John 20:5
Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying there on the ground, but he did not go in.

John 20:6
Simon Peter, however, also came, following him, and entered the tomb. There on the ground he saw the cloths;

John 20:7
and the towel, which had been placed over the face of Jesus, not lying with the cloths, but folded up and put by itself.

John 20:8
Then the other disciple, who had been the first to come to the tomb, also went in and saw and was convinced.

John 20:9
For until now they had not understood the inspired teaching, that He must rise again from among the dead.

John 20:10
Then they went away and returned home.

John 20:11
Meanwhile Mary remained standing near the tomb, weeping aloud. She did not enter the tomb, but as she wept she stooped and looked in,

John 20:12
and saw two angels clothed in white raiment, sitting one at the head and one at the feet where the body of Jesus had been.

John 20:13
They spoke to her. “Why are you weeping?” they asked. “Because,” she replied, “they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have put him.”

John 20:14
While she was speaking, she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, but did not recognize Him.

John 20:15
“Why are you weeping?” He asked; “who are you looking for?” She, supposing that He was the gardener, replied, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him and I will remove him.”

John 20:16
“Mary!” said Jesus. She turned to Him. “Rabboni!” she cried in Hebrew: the word means `Teacher!’

John 20:17
“Do not cling to me,” said Jesus, “for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But take this message to my brethren: `I am ascending to my father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

John 20:18
Mary of Magdala came and brought word to the disciples. “I have seen the Master,” she said. And she told them that He had said these things to her.

John 20:19
On that same first day of the week, when it was evening and, for fear of the Jews, the doors of the house where the disciples were, were locked, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and said to them, “Peace be to you!”

John 20:20
Having said this He showed them His hands and also His side; and the disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Master.

John 20:21
A second time, therefore, He said to them, “Peace be to you! As the Father sent me, I also now send you.”

John 20:22
Having said this He breathed upon them and said, “Receive the holy Spirit.

John 20:23
If you remit the sins of any persons, they remain remitted to them. If you bind fast the sins of any, they remain bound.”

John 20:24
Thomas, one of the twelve–surnamed `the Twin’ –was not among them when Jesus came.

John 20:25
So the rest of the disciples told him, “We have seen the Master!” His reply was, “Unless I see in his hands the wound made by the nails and put my finger into the wound, and put my hand into his side, I will never believe it.”

John 20:26
A week later the disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them, when Jesus came–though the doors were locked–and stood in their midst, and said, “Peace be to you.”

John 20:27
Then He said to Thomas, “Bring your finger here and feel my hands; bring you hand and put it into my side; and do not be ready to disbelieve but to believe.”

John 20:28
“My Lord and my God!” replied Thomas.

John 20:29
“Because you have seen me,” replied Jesus, “you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 20:30
There were also a great number of other signs which Jesus performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not recorded in this book.

John 20:31
But these have been recorded in order that you may believe that He is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, through believing, you may have life through His name.
