Luke 24
1Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them.
2And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation].
4And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5And as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek you2f the living among the dead?
6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke unto you when he was yet in Galil [circuit, district],
7Saying, The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
8And they remembered his words,
9And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
10It was Miryam [waters of strength] Magdala [a tower], and Yochanan [gift of God], and Miryam [waters of strength] [the mother] of Ya’akov [heal-grabber], and other [women that were] with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
11And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
12Then arose Kefa [pebble], and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] [about] threescore furlongs.
14And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Yeshua [God is Salvation] himself drew near, and went with them.
16But their eyes were held that they should not know him.
17And he said unto them, What manner of communications [are] these that you2f have one to another, as you2f walk, and are sad?
18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Are youi only a stranger in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and have not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Yeshua [God is Salvation] of Natzeret [one separated], which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God-Theos and all the people:
20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God]: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
22Yes, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found [it] even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
26Ought not Moshiach [Messiah] to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27And beginning at Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
28And they drew near unto the village, to which they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to wait with them.
30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [it], and broke, and gave to them.
31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
34Saying, The Lord - Kurios is risen indeed, and has appeared to Shim’on [he has heard].
35And they told what things [were done] in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
36And as they thus spoke, Yeshua [God is Salvation] himself stood in the midst of them, and says unto them, Peace [be] unto you.
37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a Spirit [Ruach].
38And he said unto them, Why are you2f troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a Spirit [Ruach] has not flesh and bones, as you2f see me have.
40And when he had thus spoken, he showed them [his] hands and [his] feet.
41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have you2f here any meat?
42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
43And he took [it], and did eat before them.
44And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.
45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Moshiach [Messiah] to suffer (allow, to let, permit), and to rise from the dead the third day:
47And that repentance and forgiveness (pardon) of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
48And you2f are witnesses of these things.
49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but wait you2f in the city of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], until you2f be endued with power from on high.
50And he led them out as far as to Beit-Anyah [house of figs], and he lifted up his hands, and Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) them.
51And it came to pass, while he Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
52And they worshipped him, and returned to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] with great joy:
53And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God-Theos. Amen.
