Luke 24:1-John 2:25
24:1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 They entered in, and did not find the body of the Lord Yeshua. 4 It happened, while they were greatly perplexed about this, look, two men stood by them in dazzling clothing. 5 Becoming terrified, they bowed their faces down to the earth.
They said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee, 7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again?”
8 Then they remembered his words. 9 And returning from the tomb, they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now they were Miriam Magdalene and Yohanah and Miriam the mother of Jacob and the other women with them told these things to the emissaries. 11 These words seemed to them to be nonsense, and they did not believe them. 12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb. Stooping and looking in, he saw the strips of linen by themselves, and he departed to his home, wondering what had happened.
13 And look, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 They talked with each other about all of these things which had happened. 15 It happened, while they talked and questioned together, that Yeshua himself came near, and went with them. 16 But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17 And he said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad.
18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only stranger in Jerusalem who does not know the things which have happened there in these days?”
19 He said to them, “What things?”
They said to him, “The things concerning Yeshua, the Nazarene, a man who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people; 20 and how the chief cohanim and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 21 But we were hoping that it was he who would redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things happened. 22 Also, certain women of our company amazed us, having arrived early at the tomb; 23 and when they did not find his body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 24 Some of us went to the tomb, and found it just like the women had said, but they did not see him.”
25 Then he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken. 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and to enter into his glory?” 27 Beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. 28 They drew near to the village, where they were going, and he acted like he would go further.
29 They urged him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is almost evening, and the day is almost over.”
He went in to stay with them. 30 It happened, that when he had sat down at the table with them, he took the matzah and gave thanks. Breaking it, he gave to them. 31 Their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said to one another, “Weren’t our hearts burning within us, while he spoke to us along the way, and while he opened the Scriptures to us?” 33 They rose up that very hour, returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and those who were with them, 34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon.” 35 They related the things that happened along the way, and how he was recognized by them in the breaking of the matzah.
36 As they said these things, Yeshua himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace be to you.”
37 But they were terrified and filled with fear, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled? Why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is truly me. Touch me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.” 40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 While they still did not believe for joy, and wondered, he said to them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”
42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish. 43 And he took it and ate in front of them. 44 And he said to them, “This is what I told you, while I was still with you, that all things which are written in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms, concerning me must be fulfilled.”
45 Then he opened their minds, that they might understand the Scriptures. 46 He said to them, “Thus it is written, for the Messiah to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance leading to forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 And look, I send forth the promise of my Father on you. But wait in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”
50 He led them out as far as Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 It happened, while he blessed them, that he departed from them, and was carried up into heaven. 52 They worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of humanity. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. 6 There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. 9 The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, but the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to his own, and those who were his own did not receive him. 12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him and shouted out, saying, “This was the one of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.'” 16 For of his fullness we all received, and grace upon grace. 17 For the Law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Yeshua the Messiah. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only Son, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.
19 And this is John’s testimony, when the Jewish leaders sent cohanim and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
20 And he confessed, and did not deny, but he confessed, “I am not the Messiah.”
21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.”
22 They said therefore to him, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”
23 He said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as Isaiah the prophet said.”
24 (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.) 25 And they asked him, “Why then do you immerse, if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”
26 John answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but among you stands one whom you do not know. 27 He is the one who comes after me, whose sandal strap I’m not worthy to loosen.” 28 These things were done in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was immersing.
29 The next day, he saw Yeshua coming to him, and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me, because he existed before me.’ 31 I did not know him, but for this reason I came immersing in water: that he would be revealed to Israel.” 32 And John testified, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained on him. 33 And I did not recognize him, but he who sent me to immerse in water, he said to me, ‘On whomever you will see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, this is he who immerses in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and have testified that this is the Chosen One of God.”
35 Again, the next day, John was standing with two of his talmidim, 36 and he looked at Yeshua as he walked, and said, “Look, the Lamb of God.” 37 And the two talmidim heard him say this, and they followed Yeshua. 38 And Yeshua turned and saw them following, and said to them, “What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?”
39 He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
They came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four in the afternoon. 40 One of the two who heard John, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother, Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah.” (which is translated, Anointed One). 42 He brought him to Yeshua. Yeshua looked at him, and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Kefa” (which is translated, Peter). 43 On the next day, he was determined to go out into Galilee, and he found Philip. And Yeshua said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets wrote: Yeshua of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?”
Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
47 Yeshua saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, “Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”
48 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?”
Yeshua answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”
49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God. You are King of Israel.”
50 Yeshua answered him, “Because I told you, ‘I saw you underneath the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
2:1 And the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Yeshua was there. 2 Now Yeshua also was invited, with his talmidim, to the wedding. 3 And when the wine ran out, Yeshua’s mother said to him, “They have no wine.”
4 Yeshua said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come.”
5 His mother said to the servants, “Whatever he says to you, do it.” 6 Now there were six stone water jars set there after the Jewish manner of purifying, containing two or three metretes apiece. 7 Yeshua said to them, “Fill the water jars with water.” They filled them up to the brim. 8 He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. You have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This beginning of his signs Yeshua did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his talmidim believed in him.
12 After this, he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother and brothers, and his talmidim; and they stayed there a few days. 13 The Jewish Passover was near, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. 14 And he found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the money changers sitting. 15 And he made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew their tables. 16 To those who sold the doves, he said, “Take these things out of here. Do not make my Father’s house a marketplace.” 17 His talmidim remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
18 The Jewish leaders therefore answered him, “What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?”
19 Yeshua answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20 The Jewish leaders therefore said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his talmidim remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Yeshua had said.
23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name, after seeing his signs which he did. 24 But Yeshua did not trust himself to them, because he knew everyone, 25 and because he did not need anyone to testify concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man.
