NASB — Luke 24 — KJV

The Resurrection

1 aBut 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 athe Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, atwo men suddenly bstood 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 ahas Irisen. Remember how He spoke to you bwhile He was still in Galilee, 7 saying that athe Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” 8 And athey 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 aMary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the [mother] of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to bthe apostles. 11 But these words appeared Ito them as nonsense, and they awould not believe them. 12 But Peter got up and aran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he *saw the linen wrappings Ionly; and he went away bto his home, marveling at what had happened.

The Road to Emmaus

13 ¶ And behold, atwo of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was Iabout seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. 15 While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and [began] traveling with them. 16 But atheir eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. 17 And He said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad. 18 One [of them], named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, “Are You Ithe only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?” 19 And He said to them, “What things?” And they said to Him, “The things about aJesus the Nazarene, who was a bprophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our arulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to aredeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened. 22 But also some women among us amazed us. aWhen they were at the tomb early in the morning, 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said that He was alive. 24 Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see.” 25 And He said to them, “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that athe prophets have spoken! 26 aWas it not necessary for the IChrist to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 Then beginning Iwith aMoses and Iwith all the bprophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.

28 ¶ And they approached the village where they were going, and aHe acted as though He were going farther. 29 But they urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is [getting] toward evening, and the day Iis now nearly over.” So He went in to stay with them. 30 When He had reclined [at the table] with them, He took the bread and ablessed [it], and breaking [it], He [began] giving [it] to them. 31 Then their aeyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from Itheir sight. 32 They said to one another, “IWere not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He awas IIexplaining the Scriptures to us?” 33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and afound gathered together the eleven and bthose who were with them, 34 saying, “aThe Lord has really risen and bhas appeared to Simon.” 35 They [began] to relate Itheir experiences on the road and how aHe was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.

36 ¶ While they were telling these things, aHe 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 aa spirit. 38 And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your Ihearts? 39 aSee My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; btouch 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 Iacould not believe [it] because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, bHave you anything here to eat?” 42 They gave Him a piece of a broiled fish; 43 and He took it and aate [it] before them.

Christ's resurrection is declared by two angels to the women that come to the sepulchre.

1 ¶ Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 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 thereabout, 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 spake 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 sepulchre, 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 that were] with them, which 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 sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Christ himself appeareth to the two disciples that went to Emmaus:

13 ¶ And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem [about] threescore furlongs. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16 But their eyes were holden 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 the 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 are come to pass there in these days? 19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which 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 which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, 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 at 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 went: 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 brake, and gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? 33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they told what things [were done] in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

afterwards he appeareth to the Apostles, and reproveth their unbelief:

36 ¶ And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you. 37 But they were terrified and affrighted, 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 have. 40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed 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 an honeycomb. 43 And he took [it], and did eat before them. 44 And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake 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 behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
