12 pulchre; and seeth two angels in white, sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of

13 Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, "Woman, why weepest thou?" She saith unto them, " Because they have taken away my Lord*, and I know not where they

14 have laid him." When she had said thus, she turned /rer*e//'back, and seeth Jesus standing; but knew not that

15 it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, "Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekestthou?" She, supposing him to be the keeper of the garden, saith unto him, "Sir, if thou have carried him hence, tell me where thou hast laid

16 him, and I will take him away." Jesus saith unto her, "Mary." She turned, and saith unto him in the Hebrew tongue, "Rabboni." Which signifieth, My Teach

17 ert. Jesus saith unto her, "Embrace me not: for I do not yet ascend to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them,' I ascend \ to my Father and your Father,

18 and to my God and your God.'" Mary Magdalene cometh and telleth the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had said these things unto her.

19 Then in the evening of that day, being the first day of the week, the doors where the disciples were assembled having been shut for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst; and saith unto them, "Peace be unto

20 you." And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad, when

21 they saw the Lord. Then Jesus said to them again, "Peace be unto you: as the Father sent me, so I send

22 you." And when he had said this, he breathed on them,

23 and saith unto them, '- Receive ye the holy spirit. If ye remit the sins of any, they are remitted unto them; if ye retain them, they are retained."

24 But Thomas, called Didymus, one of the twelve, was 25 not with them when Jesus came. Then the other disciples

said unto him, "We have seen the Lord"." But he said unto them, "Unless I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put mine hand into his side, I shall not believe."

26 And, within eight day st, his'disciples were again within, and Thomas with them: then Jesus cometh, the doors having been shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace

27 be unto you." Then he saith to Thomas, "Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thine hand, and put it into my side; and be not unbelieving,

28 but believing." Thomas answered, and said unto him,

29 "My Lord, and my Godf!" Jesus saith unto him, "Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; happy are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his

31 disciples, which are not written in this book: 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. <

Ch. Xxi. After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the lake of Tiberias: and in this manner

2 he shewed himself. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his

3 disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, "I am going to fish." They say unto him, "We also will go with thee." They departed, and went into a ship immediately; and

4 on that night they caught nothing. But when morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: the disciples

5 however knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, "Young men||, have ye any food?" They 6 answered him, "No." And he said unto them, "Cast

the net on the right side of the ship, and ye will get some." They cast it therefore: and now they were not

7 able to draw it, for the multitude of fishes. Wherefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith to Peter, "It is the Lord*." Now, when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt on his upper garment (for he was naked),

8 and cast himself into the lake. And the other disciples came in the vessel, (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits) dragging the net full of

9 fishes. As soon then as they landed, they see a fire of

10 coals lying, and fish laid thereon; and bread. Jesus saith unto them, "Bring of the fishes which ye have now

11 caught." Simon Peter went into the vessel, and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, an hundred and fiftythree: and although there were so many, yet the net was

12 not broken. Jesus saith unto them, "Come and dine." Now none of the disciples durst inquire of him, "Who

13 art thou \" knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus [then] cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth to them, and fish

14 in like manner. Jesus shewed himself to his disciples now this third time, after he had risen from the dead.

15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, "Simon son of Jonah, lovest thou me more than these love me t?" He saith unto Jesus, " Yes, Lord f: : thou

16 knowest that I love thee." Jesus saith unto him, "Feed my lambs." Jesus saith to him again a second time ; "Simon son of Jonah, lovest thou me?" He saith unto Jesus, "Yes, Lord: thou knowest that I love thee." Jesus

17 saith unto him, "Tend my sheep." Jesus saith unto him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me?" Peter was grieved that Jesus said unto him the third time, "Lovest thou me?" and he said unto Jesus, "Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee." Jesus

18 saith unto him, "Feed my sheep. Verily verily I say unto thee", When thou wast young, thou didst gird thyself and walk whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou wilt stretch forth thine hands, and another will gird thee, and carry thee whither thou would

19 est not." Now he spake this, signifying by what death Peter would glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith to Peter, "Follow me."

20 Then Peter turned about, and seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who had leaned on his breast also at supper, and had said, "Lord, which is he who de

21 livereth thee up?" When Peter saw him, he saith to

22 Jesus, "Lord, and what shall this man do?" Jesus saith unto him, "If I will that he remain till I come, what /»

33 that to thee? Follow thou me." This report therefore went abroad among the brethren, that this disciple was not* to die; yet Jesus said not to him, "He shall not dic;" but, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to thee I"

24 This is the disciple who testified of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is

25 truet. And there are many other things also that Jesus did, which, if they were written every one, I think that even the world itself could not contain the books which would be writtenf.

2 until the day in which he was taken up, after having given commandments, by the holy spirit, to the apostles

3 whom he had chosen: to whom he also shewed himself alive, after his suffering, by many infallible proofs; being seen by them forty days, and speaking of the things

4 concerning the kingdom of God. And then, assembling them together, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to waitf for the promise of the Father;

5 "which," aaid he, "ye have heard from me. For John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized

6 with the holy spirit not many days hence." When therefore they were come together, they asked him, saying, "Lord, art thou at this time restoring|| the kingdom to

7 Israel I" And he said unto them, "It is not for you to know the times or seasons, which the Father hath put in

8 his own disposal. But ye shall receive power, when the holy spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses to me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Sa
