Luke 24

Christ's resurrection is declared by two angels to the women that come to the sepulchre.

Luke 24:1 Bvt vpon one of the Sabbathes very early in the mornynge, they came vnto the Sepulcre, and brought ye spyces which they had prepared, and certayne wemen with the. Luke 24:2 Neuertheles they founde the stone rolled awaye from the sepulcre, Luke 24:3 and wente in, and founde not the body of ye LORDE Iesu. Luke 24:4 And it happened as they were amased therat, beholde, there stode by them two men in shyninge garmentes. Luke 24:5 And they were afrayed, and cast downe their faces to the earth. Then sayde they vnto the: What seke ye? the lyuynge amoge the deed? Luke 24:6 He is not here. He is rysen vp. Remembre, how yt he tolde you wha he was yet in Galile, Luke 24:7 and sayde: The sonne of man must be delyuered in to the hades of synners, and be crucified, and the thirde daye ryse agayne. Luke 24:8 And they remebred his wordes,

These report it to others.

Luke 24:9 and wente from the sepulcre, and tolde all this vnto the eleuen, and to all the other. Luke 24:10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Iohanna, and Mary Iames, and the other with them, that tolde this vnto the Apostles. Luke 24:11 And theyr wordes semed vnto them, as though they had bene but fables, and they beleued them not. Luke 24:12 But Peter arose, and ranne to the sepulcre, and stouped in, and sawe the lynnen clothes layed by them selues, and departed. And he wondred within himself at that which had happened.

Christ himself appeareth to the two disciples that went to Emmaus:

Luke 24:13 And beholde, two of them wente that same daye, to a towne (which was thre score furloges from Ierusalem) whose name was called Emaus. Luke 24:14 And they talked together of all these thinges yt had happened. Luke 24:15 And it chaunced as they were thus talkinge and reasonynge together, Iesus himself drue nye, and wente with them. Luke 24:16 But their eyes were holden, that they shulde not knowe hi. Luke 24:17 And he sayde vnto them: What maner of comunicacions are these that ye haue one to another as ye walke, and are sad? Luke 24:18 Then answered the one, whose name was Cleophas, and sayde vnto him: Art thou onely a straunger at Ierusale, not knowinge what is come to passe there in these dayes? Luke 24:19 And he sayde vnto the: What? They sayde vnto him: That of Iesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet, mightie in dede and worde, before God and all ye people, Luke 24:20 how oure hye prestes and rulers delyuered him to the condemnacion of death, and crucified him. Luke 24:21 But we hoped that he shulde haue delyuered Israel. And besydes all this, todaye is the thirde daye that this was done. Luke 24:22 Yee & certayne wemen also of oure company which were early at the Sepulcre, Luke 24:23 and founde not his body, came and tolde, that they had sene a visio of angels, which sayde he was alyue. Luke 24:24 And certayne of them that were with vs, wente vnto the sepulcre, and founde it euen so as ye weme sayde, but hi founde they not. Luke 24:25 And he sayde vnto the: O ye fooles and slowe of hert to beleue all that the prophetes haue spoke? Luke 24:26 Ought not Christ to haue suffred these thinges, and to entre in to his glory? Luke 24:27 And he beganne at Moses and at all the prophetes, and expounded vnto them all the scriptures, that were spoken of him. Luke 24:28 And they drue nye vnto the towne, which they wete vnto, and he made as though he wolde haue gone farther. Luke 24:29 And they compelled him, and sayde: Abyde with vs, for it draweth towardes night, and the daye is farre passed. And he wente in to tary with the. Luke 24:30 And it came to passe whan he sat at the table with the, he toke the bred, gaue thankes, brake it, and gaue it them. Luke 24:31 Then were their eyes opened, and they knewe him. And he vanyshed out of their sight. Luke 24:32 And they sayde, betwene the selues: Dyd not oure hert burne with in vs, whan he talked with vs by the waye, whyle he opened the scriptures vnto vs? Luke 24:33 And they rose vp the same houre, turned agayne to Ierusalem, and founde ye eleue gathered together, and them that were with them, which Luke 24:34 sayde: The LORDE is rysen of a trueth, and hath appeared vnto Symon. Luke 24:35 And they tolde the what had happened by ye waye, and how they knewe him in breakynge of the bred.

afterwards he appeareth to the Apostles, and reproveth their unbelief:

Luke 24:36 But whyle they were talkynge therof, Iesus himself stode in the myddes amonge the, and sayde: Peace be with you. Luke 24:37 But they were abashed and afrayed, supposinge that they had sene a sprete. Luke 24:38 And he saide vnto the: Why are ye abashed? & wherfore ryse there soch thoughtes in yor hertes? Luke 24:39 Beholde my hades & my fete, it is euen I my self. Handle me, and se, for a sprete hath not flesh and bones, as ye se me haue. Luke 24:40 And whan he had thus spoke, he shewed the his hodes and his fete. Luke 24:41 But whyle they yet beleued not for ioye and wondred, he sayde vnto them: Haue ye eny thinge here to eate? Luke 24:42 And they set before him a pece of a broyled fish, and an hony combe. Luke 24:43 And he toke it, and ate it before the. Luke 24:44 And he sayde vnto them: These are the wordes, which I spake vnto you, whyle I was yet with you. For it must all be fulfilled that was wrytten of me in the lawe of Moses, in the prophetes, & in the Psalmes. Luke 24:45 The opened he their vnderstondinge, that they might vnderstonde the scriptures, Luke 24:46 and sayde vnto them: Thus is it wrytte, and thus it behoued Christ to suffre, & the thirde daye to ryse agayne fro the deed,

giveth them a charge:

Luke 24:47 and to let repentaunce and remyssion, of synnes be preached in his name amoge all nacions, and to begynne at Ierusale. Luke 24:48 As for all these thinges, ye are wytnesses of the.

promiseth the Holy Ghost:

Luke 24:49 And beholde, I wil sende vpon you the promes of my father: but ye shal tary in the cite of Ierusalem, tyll ye be endewed with power from aboue.

Luke 24:50 But he led them out vnto Bethany, and lift vp his handes, and blessed them.

and so ascendeth into heaven.

Luke 24:51 And it came to passe wha he blessed them, he departed from them, and was caried vp in to heauen. Luke 24:52 And they worshipped him, and turned agayne to Ierusalem with greate ioye: Luke 24:53 and were contynnally in ye teple, geuynge prayse and thankes vnto God. Amen.
