|Scripture Readings: John 19:31-20:29
“And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter.
And Peter remembered the word of the Lord,
how he had said unto him, Before the cock
crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And Peter
went out, and wept bitterly.”
Joseph of Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus,
made a request to Pilate to let him take away the
body of Jesus: and Pilate said he might do so.
So he went and took away his body. And
Nicodemus came with a roll of myrrh and aloes mixed.
Then they took the body of Jesus, folding linen about
it with the spices and placed Him in the tomb.
|Three Days Later
Now on the first day of the week, very early, while
it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the
place and saw that the stone had been taken
away from it. Then she went running to Peter
and John and said to them, They have taken
away the Lord out of the place of the dead and
we have no knowledge where they have put him.
|The Empty Tomb
So Peter and John ran to the tomb and
John looked in and he saw the linen bands
and the cloth, which had been round his head.
So then they went away again to their houses.
He is risen!!
He is risen indeed!!!
Thomas, one of the twelve, was not with them
when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to
him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to
them, If I do not see in his hands the print of the
nails and put my finger into the print of the nails,
and if I do not put my hand into his side, I will
never have belief.
After eight days, his disciples were again in the house
and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were
shut, Jesus came, and taking his place in the middle of
them, he said, May peace be with you! Then he said
to Thomas, Put out your finger, and see my hands;
and put your hand here into my side: and be no
longer in doubt but have belief. And Thomas said in
answer, My Lord and my God! Jesus said to him,
Because you have seen me you have belief: blessed
are those who have not seen Me, and yet believe!
