24:2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
24:3 They entered in, and didn`t find the Lord Jesus` body.
24:6 He isn`t here, but is risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee,
24:8 They remembered his words,
24:9 returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest.
24:11 These words seemed to them to be nonsense, and they didn`t believe them.
24:12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb. Stooping and looking in, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he departed to his home, wondering what had happened.
24:13 Behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was sixty stadia from Jerusalem.
24:14 They talked with each other about all of these things which had happened.
24:15 It happened, while they talked and questioned together, that Jesus himself came near, and went with them.
24:16 But their eyes were kept from recognizing him.
24:17 He said to them, "What are you talking about as you walk, and are sad?"
24:18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered him, "Are you the only one travelling in Jerusalem who doesn`t know the things which have happened there in these days?"
24:19 He said to them, "What things?" They said to him, "The things concerning Jesus, the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;
24:20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him.
24:23 and when they didn`t find his body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive.
24:24 Some of us went to the tomb, and found it just like the women had said, but they didn`t see him."
24:26 Didn`t the Christ have to suffer these things, and to enter into his glory?"
24:28 They drew near to the village, where they were going, and he acted like he would go further.
24:30 It happened, when he had sat down at the table with them, he took the bread and gave thanks. Breaking it, he gave to them.
24:31 Their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he vanished out of their sight.
24:32 They said one to another, "Wasn`t our heart burning within us, while he spoke to us along the way, and while he opened the scriptures to us?"
24:33 They rose up that very hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and those who were with them,
24:34 saying, "The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!"
24:36 As they said these things, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace be to you."
24:37 But they were terrified and filled with fear, and supposed that they saw a spirit.
24:38 He said to them, "Why are you troubled? Why do questionings arise in your hearts?
24:40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
24:41 While they still didn`t believe for joy, and wondered, he said to them, "Do you have anything here to eat?"
24:43 He took it, and ate in front of them.
24:45 Then he opened their minds, that they might understand the scriptures.
24:47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
24:48 You are witnesses of these things.
24:50 He led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
24:51 It happened, while he blessed them, that he withdrew from them, and was carried up into heaven.
24:52 They worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
24:53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
