Book Chapter Verse Text
John 20 1 Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.
John 20 2 She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, "They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!"
John 20 3 Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see.
John 20 4 The other disciple outran Peter and got there first.
John 20 5 He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.
John 20 6 Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there,
John 20 7 while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.
John 20 8 Then the other disciple also went in, and he saw and believed--
John 20 9 for until then they hadn't realized that the Scriptures said he would rise from the dead.
John 20 10 Then they went home.
John 20 11 Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in.
John 20 12 She saw two white-robed angels sitting at the head and foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying.
John 20 13 "Why are you crying?" the angels asked her. "Because they have taken away my Lord," she replied, "and I don't know where they have put him."
John 20 14 She glanced over her shoulder and saw someone standing behind her. It was Jesus, but she didn't recognize him.
John 20 15 "Why are you crying?" Jesus asked her. "Who are you looking for?" She thought he was the gardener. "Sir," she said, "if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him."
John 20 16 "Mary!" Jesus said. She turned toward him and exclaimed, "Teacher!"
John 20 17 "Don't cling to me," Jesus said, "for I haven't yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father, my God and your God."
John 20 18 Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, "I have seen the Lord!" Then she gave them his message.
John 20 19 That evening, on the first day of the week, the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! "Peace be with you," he said.
John 20 20 As he spoke, he held out his hands for them to see, and he showed them his side. They were filled with joy when they saw their Lord!
John 20 21 He spoke to them again and said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you."
John 20 22 Then he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
John 20 23 If you forgive anyone's sins, they are forgiven. If you refuse to forgive them, they are unforgiven."
John 20 24 One of the disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin ), was not with the others when Jesus came.
John 20 25 They told him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he replied, "I won't believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side."
John 20 26 Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. He said, "Peace be with you."
John 20 27 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don't be faithless any longer. Believe!"
John 20 28 "My Lord and my God!" Thomas exclaimed.
John 20 29 Then Jesus told him, "You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who haven't seen me and believe anyway."
John 20 30 Jesus' disciples saw him do many other miraculous signs besides the ones recorded in this book.
John 20 31 But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life.
John 21 1 Later Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened.
John 21 2 Several of the disciples were there--Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin ), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples.
John 21 3 Simon Peter said, "I'm going fishing.We'll come, too," they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night.
John 21 4 At dawn the disciples saw Jesus standing on the beach, but they couldn't see who he was.
John 21 5 He called out, "Friends, have you caught any fish?No," they replied.
John 21 6 Then he said, "Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you'll get plenty of fish!" So they did, and they couldn't draw in the net because there were so many fish in it.
John 21 7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and swam ashore.
John 21 8 The others stayed with the boat and pulled the loaded net to the shore, for they were only out about three hundred feet.
John 21 9 When they got there, they saw that a charcoal fire was burning and fish were frying over it, and there was bread.
John 21 10 "Bring some of the fish you've just caught," Jesus said.
John 21 11 So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore. There were 153 large fish, and yet the net hadn't torn.
John 21 12 "Now come and have some breakfast!" Jesus said. And no one dared ask him if he really was the Lord because they were sure of it.
John 21 13 Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish.
John 21 14 This was the third time Jesus had appeared to his disciples since he had been raised from the dead.
John 21 15 After breakfast Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?Yes, Lord," Peter replied, "you know I love you.Then feed my lambs," Jesus told him.
John 21 16 Jesus repeated the question: "Simon son of John, do you love me?Yes, Lord," Peter said, "you know I love you.Then take care of my sheep," Jesus said.
John 21 17 Once more he asked him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, "Lord, you know everything. You know I love you." Jesus said, "Then feed my sheep.
John 21 18 The truth is, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked and go wherever you wanted to. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will direct you and take you where you don't want to go."
John 21 19 Jesus said this to let him know what kind of death he would die to glorify God. Then Jesus told him, "Follow me."
John 21 20 Peter turned around and saw the disciple Jesus loved following them--the one who had leaned over to Jesus during supper and asked, "Lord, who among us will betray you?"
John 21 21 Peter asked Jesus, "What about him, Lord?"
John 21 22 Jesus replied, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You follow me."
John 21 23 So the rumor spread among the community of believers that that disciple wouldn't die. But that isn't what Jesus said at all. He only said, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?"
John 21 24 This is that disciple who saw these events and recorded them here. And we all know that his account of these things is accurate.
John 21 25 And I suppose that if all the other things Jesus did were written down, the whole world could not contain the books.
