A. D. 33.
147. Christ's resurrection is declared by two
Now upon the first day of the week, very L. 24. 1 early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they 2 found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body 3 of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as 4 Acts 1. they were much perplexed thereabout, a behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: and as they were afraid, and bowed down their 5 faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? he is not 6 here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, 7 The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered 8 his words, and returned from the sepulchre, 9 and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and 10 Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. And their words seemed to 11 them as idle tales, and they believed them not. Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre ; 12 and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
148. Christ himself appeareth to the two disciples
AND, behold, two of them went that same A. D. 33. day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
And they talked together of all these things 15 which had happened. 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 17 not know him. 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 19 days? And he said unto them, "What things?" And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in Acts 2. deed and word before God and all the people: 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers deli- 22. c Acts 13. vered him to be condemned to death, and have 27, 28. 21 crucified him. But we trusted d that it had been a Acts 1.6. he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since 22 these things were done. Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which 23 were early at the sepulchre; and when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that 24 he was alive. 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 25 saw not. Then he said unto them, "O 2 fools, "and slow of heart to believe all that the pro26"phets have spoken: Ought not Christ to Acts 17. "have suffered these things, and to enter into

And they drew nigh unto the village, whither 28 Deu.18.15. they went: and he made as though he would Ps. 16. 9, have gone further. But 'they constrained him, 29 & 132.11. saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, Is 7.14. & and the day is far spent. And he went in to 10, 11. & tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he 30 50.6.& 53. sat at meat with them, he took 2 bread, and 3. 14, blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And 31 15. Ezek. their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. And they 32 Dan. 9. 24. said one to another, Did not our heart burn Mal. 3.1. within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? And 33 32. 26. & they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, saying, 34 The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. And they told what things were 35 done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

AND as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood 36
in the midst of them, and saith unto them,
hearts? behold my hands and my feet, that 39 "it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spi"rit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me "have." And when he had thus spoken, he 40 shewed them his hands and his feet. And while 41 Gen. 45. they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, "Have ye here any meat?"

L. 24.42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, A. D. 33. 43 and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and Acts 10. J. 20. 21 did eat before them. Then said Jesus to them
again, "Peace be unto you: as my Father hath Heb.3.1. 22" sent me, even so send I you." And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith 23 unto them, "Receive ye the Holy Ghost: whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they "are retained."
150. The incredulity and confession of Thomas. J. 20. 24 BUT Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didy25 mus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will 26 not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be unto you." 27 Then saith he to Thomas, "Reach hither thy "finger, and behold my hands; and reach 1 John “hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: 28" and be not faithless, but believing." And
Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord 29 and my God. Jesus saith unto him, "Thomas, "because thou hast seen me, thou hast be"lieved: "blessed are they that have not seen, 2 Cor.5.7. M*. 16. " and yet have believed." And he upbraided 14 them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

151. Christ appeareth again to his disciples.
After these things Jesus shewed himself again J. 21. 1 to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on 10, 21. this wise shewed he himself. There were toge- 2 Phil. 2.9, ther Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, 1.2. & 2.8. and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons 1Pet.3.22 of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. 3 They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. But 4 when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, 5 Children, have ye any meat?" They answered him, No. And he said unto them, "Cast the 6 "net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall "find." They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom unto Peter, It is the Lord. Peter heard that it was the 2 fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other 8 disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. As soon 9 then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, "Bring of the fish which 10 ye have now caught." Simon Peter went up, 11 and drew the net to land full of great fishes,
