But Mary stood outside near the sepulchre weeping, and as she wept, she stooped down and looked into the sepulchreand saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been placed.And they said unto her, Woman, why dost thou weep? She said unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.And when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there and did not know that it was Jesus.Jesus said unto her, Woman, why dost thou weep? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, said unto him, Lord, if thou didst carry him off, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.Jesus said unto her, Mary! Turning herself around, she said unto him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master.Jesus said unto her, Touch me not, for I have not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God.Mary Magdalene came giving the news to the disciples, That I have seen the Lord, and he spoke these things unto me.
Then the same day at evening, being the first of the sabbaths, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst and said unto them, Peace be unto you.And having said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.Then Jesus said to them again, Peace be unto you; as my Father has sent me, even so send I you.And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit;unto those whose sins ye release, they shall be released; and unto those whose sins ye retain, they shall be retained.
