and the other disciple, and came to the sepulchre : 4 and they both ran together; but the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulchre: 5 and stooping down, he saw the linen clothes lying; yet he went not in. 6 Then Simon Peter also cometh, following him; and he went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lying; 7 and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself: 8 then the other disciple, who came first to the sepulchre, went in also, and he saw, and believed : 9 for, as yet they understood not the scripture, that he was to rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again to their own homes: 11 but Mary stood at the sepulchre without, weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down to the sepulchre, 12 and seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain : 13 and they say to her, Woman, why weepest thou? she saith to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

14 When she had said this, she turned round, and saw Jesus standing; but knew not that it was Jesus: 15 Jesus saith to her,Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? she, thinking that he was the gardener, saith to him, Sir, if thou hast carried him from hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away: 16 Jesus saith to her, Mary! she turned herself, and saith to him, in the Hebrew tongue, Rabboni; which is to say, Master: 17 Jesus saith to her, Touch me not; for I have not yet ascended to the Father: but, go to my brethren, and tell them, I ascend to my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene went and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord ; and that he had spoken to her those words. 19 When, then, it was evening on the same day, which was the first day of the week, and while the doors where the disciples were assembled were locked, through fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, Peace be to you! 20 and when he had so said, he shewed to them both his hands and his side: then the

said to him, My Lord, and my God | 29 Jesus saith to him, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they who see me not, and yet believe. 30 And many other signs Jesus did in the presence of the "disciples, which are not written in this book: 31 but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, ye may have life through his name.

CHAPTER XXI.

FTER these things Jesus manifested himself again to the disciples, at the sea of Tiberias; and he manifested himself thus. 2 Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didumus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples, were together: 3 Simon Peter saith to them, I am going to fish; they say to him, We also will go with thee: they went forth, and entered into a ship; and that night they caught nothing: 4 and when it was morning, Jesus stood on the shore; but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus saith to them, Children, have ye anything to eat? they answered him, No:

disciples rejoiced, when they
saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them
again, Peace be to you! as my
Father sent me, so I also send
you :
22 and when he had said
this, he breathed on them, and
saith to them, Receive ye the
Holy Spirit:
23 whose sins ye remit, they
are remitted to them ; and
whose ye retain, they are re-
tained.
24 But Thomas, one of the
twelve, called Didumus, was
not with them when Jesus
came .
25 the other disciples, there-
fore, said to him, We have
seen the Lord : but he said
to them, Unless I see in his
hands the print of the nails,
and put my finger to the
print of the nails, and put
my hand to his side, I will
not believe.
26 And after eight days, his
disciples were again within,
and Thomas with them : then
cometh Jesus, while the doors
were locked, and stood in the
midst; and said, Peace be to
you!
27 then he saith to Thomas,
Bring hither thy finger, and
behold my hands; and bring
hither thy hand, and put it to
my side; and be not unbe-
lieving, but believing:
28 and Thomas answered and

v. 5–12.

6 and he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye will find : they cast it, therefore, and were not able to draw it, for the multitude of fishes: 7 therefore the disciple whom Jesus loved saith to Peter, It is the Lord! when, then, Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his coat about him, (for he was naked,) and cast himself into the sea: 8 and the other disciples came in a boat, (for they were not far from land, only about two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with the fishes. 9 As soon then as they came to land, they saw a fire burning, and a fish laid upon it, and bread: 10 Jesus saith to them, Bring some of the fish which ye have just caught: 11 Simon Peter therefore went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty-three: and although they were so many, the net was not broken. 12 Jesus saith to them, Come and dine: none of the disciples dared to ask him, Who art thou? knowing that he was the Lord: 13 Jesus cometh, and taketh the bread, and giveth it to them; and likewise the fish. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus manifested himself

to the disciples, after he was risen from the dead. 15 When, then, they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter; Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these ? he saith to him, Yea, Lord ; thou knowest that I love thee: he saith to him, Feed my lambs. 16 He saith to him again, a second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? he saith to him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee: he saith to him, Tend my sheep. 17 He saith to him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, Lovest thou me? and he said to him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee: Jesus saith to him, Feed my sheep: 18 verily, verily, I tell thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldst; but when thou shalt be old, thou wilt stretch out thy hands, and another will gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldst not: 19 and this he said, signifying by what death he should glorify God: and when he had spoken this, he saith to him, Follow thou me : 20 Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple following whom Jesus loved, (who had leaned at his breast at the supper, and had said, Lord, which is he who betrayeth thee?) 21 Peter, therefore, seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall he do? 22 Jesus saith to him, If I will that he remain till I come, what is it to thee? follow thou ine : 23 then this saying went forth

to the brethren, that that disciple should not die; yet Jesus said not to him, that he should not die, but, If I will that he remain till I come, what is it to thee ?

24 This disciple is he who both testifieth of these things, and hath written these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

CHAPTER I.

THE former relation I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus both did and taught, from the beginning, 2 until the day in which he was taken up; after having given commandments, through the Holy Spirit, to the apostles whom he had chosen : 3 to whom also, after he had suffered, he shewed himself to be living by many proofs; being seen by them during forty days; and speaking to them of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4 and, being assembled with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait there for the promise of the Father, Which, said he, ye heard from me: 5 for, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit, not many days hence. 6 Being therefore assembled with him, they asked him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this

time restore the kingdom to Israel? 7 and he said to them, It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father hath reserved to his own authority: 8 but ye shall receive power, from the Holy Spirit coming upon you; and shall be my witnesses, in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. 9 And when he had said these words, while they were yet beholding him, he was taken up, and a cloud concealed him from their sight: 10 and while they were gazing toward heaven, as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white clothing; 11 who also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye looking up to heaven? this Jesus, who hath been taken up from you into heaven, will so come in the same manner as ye have seen him go toward heaven. 12 Then they returned to Jersualem from the mount called, of Olives, which is a
