1 Early on the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the sepulchre in the darkness and saw that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.  
20:2 Then she runs, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and says unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.   2 She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple—who Jesus held dear—and told both of them, "They have taken the LORD out of the sepulchre and no one knows where they have laid Him."

20:5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.   5 Then stooping down and looking inside, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not enter in.  
20:6 Then comes Simon Peter following him, and went into the tomb, and sees the linen clothes lie,   6 However, Simon Peter came up fast behind him and went into the sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths also.  
20:7 And the cloth, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.   7 And he noticed that the face cloth used in the burial of Jesus was folded up and placed separately from the linen wrappings.  
20:8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the tomb, and he saw, and believed.   8 The other disciple, who had arrived first at the sepulchre, also went in and saw the same things and believed.  
20:9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.   9 For until this happened, they did not understand the Scripture which said: He must be resurrected from the dead.   THE SEAL OF

20:12 And sees two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.   12 She saw two angels clothed in white who were sitting there, one at the head and one at the foot, where the body of Jesus had lain before.  
20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weep you? She says unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.   13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She responded, "They have taken my LORD away and I do not know where they laid Him."

20:15 Jesus says unto her, Woman, why weep you? whom seek you? She, supposing him to be the gardener, says unto him, Sir, if you have borne him behind, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.   15 When Jesus said, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom do you seek?" Supposing Him to be the gardener, she replied, "Sir, if you have taken Him away, tell me where He is, and I will remove the body." K.J.V. "borne him hence"

20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and says unto them, Peace be unto you.   19 On the evening of the same day, even though the doors of the gathering place were locked because the disciples feared the Judean leaders, Jesus appeared and stood in their midst, and said to them, "Peace be to you!"  
20:20 And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.   20 After this signal greeting, He showed them His hands and His wounded side. The disciples were overcome with joy when they saw the LORD.  
20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father has sent me, even so send I you.   21 Again Jesus said, "Peace be to you: and as the Father sent me, I now send you.

20:23 Whomsoever sins all of you remit, they are remitted unto them; and whomsoever sins all of you retain, they are retained.   23 "If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; and if the sins of anyone are not forgiven, their sins remain."

20:25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.   25 So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the LORD!" His reply was, "Unless I see in His hands the impression made by the nails and touch the wound, and put my hand to His side, I will never believe."  
20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.   26 Eight days later, the disciples were in the same place with the doors locked again and Thomas was with them: when Jesus appeared in their midst and said, "Peace be to you."  
20:27 Then says he to Thomas, Reach here your finger, and behold my hands; and reach here your hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.   27 And He said to Thomas, "Bring your finger here and feel my hands; bring your hand here to my side: so that you, having such little faith, do not doubt and thus, believe."  
20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.   28 Thomas then exclaimed, "My LORD and my God."  
20:29 Jesus says unto him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.   29 "Because you have seen me, Thomas," replied Jesus, "you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed."  
20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:   30 Jesus did many other [miraculous] signs in the presence of His disciples which are not written in this book.
