King James, New Testament
According to Mathew, 50 AD
27:35 – 28:20
Jesus is Crucified
35 Then they crucified Him, and divided
His garments, casting lots, that it be fulfilled
which was spoken by the prophet:
divided My garments among them,
And for my clothing they cast lots.”
36 Sitting down, they kept watch over Him
37 And they put up over His head the accusation written against Him:
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS
38 Then two robbers were crucified with Him one on the right and another on the left.
39 And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads
40 and saying, “You who destroyed the temple and built it in three days, save Yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the scribes and elders, said,
42 “He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If he is the King of Israel, let Him come Down from the cross, and we will believe Him.
43 He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ”
44 Even the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing.
45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness all over the land.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with
a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama Sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God,
why have You forsaken Me?”
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for
48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it
on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.
Signs Accompanying Jesus’ Death
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn
in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked,
and the rocks split,
52 and the graves were
opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen
asleep were raised;
53 and coming out of the
graves after His resurrection, they went to the holy city and appeared to many.
54 So when the centurian and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
55 And many women who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were looking on
from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.
Jesus is buried
57 Now when evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.
58 This man went to Pilate and asked for the
body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body
to be given to him.
59 When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
60 and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of rock; and he rolled a large stone against
the door of the tomb, and departed.
61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting Opposite the tomb.
62 On the next day, which followed the Day of
Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees
gathered Together with Pilate,
63 saying, “Sir, we
remember, While He was still alive, how that deceiver said,
‘After three days I will rise.’
command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him
away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the
dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the
65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your
way, make it as secure as you know how.”
they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.
The Empty Tomb:
28 Now after the
Sabbath, as the first day of the week Began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary Came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a
great Earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended
from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone, from
the door and sat on it.
3 His countenance was
lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4 And the guard
shook for fear of him, and became like dead
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus
who was crucified.
6 He is not here; for He is risen,
as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord Lay.
7 And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen
from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into
Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
8 So they went out quickly from the tomb with
fear and great joy, and ran to bring his disciples
The Appearance of Jesus to the Women
9 And as they went to tell His disciples,
behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came
and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and
tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
The Bribery of the Soldiers
11 Now while they are going, behold, some of
the guard came into the city and reported to the chief
priests all the things that had happened.
12 When they had
assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a
large sum of money to the soldiers,
13 saying, “Tell them, ‘His
disciples came at night and stole Him away while we
14 and if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease
him and make you secure.”
15 So they took the money and
did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly
reported among the Jews until this day.
The Appearance of Jesus to the Disciples
16 Then the eleven disciples went away to
Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed them.
When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
The Great Commission
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying,
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing
them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy
20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded
you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of
the age.” Amen
Gospel According to John, 80-90 A.D.
The Resurrection of
Christ 20.1- 18
20 Now the first day of the week Mary
Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw
that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran
and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus
loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the
tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”
3 Peter therefore went out, and the other
disciple, and were going to the tomb.
4 So they both ran together, and the other
disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. 5 And he, stooping
down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he
did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came. Following him, and went into
the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and the
handkerchief that had been around his head, not lying with the linen
cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. 8 Then the other
disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and
believed. 9 For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must
rise again from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again to
their own houses.
Christ Appears to Mary Magdalene
11 But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping,
and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. 12
And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the
other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 Then they
said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
12 She said to them, “Because they have taken
away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”
14 Now when she had said this, she turned
around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it
was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom
are you seeking?”
She, supposing Him to be the gardener,
said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You
have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!”
(which is to say, Teacher).
17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me,
for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and
say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My
God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the
disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken
these things to her.
Gospel According to Mark, 140 AD
15:24 – 16:20
Jesus is Crucified
24 And when they crucified Him, they divided
His garments, casting lots for them to determine what every man
25 Now it was the third hour, and they
26 And the inscription of His accusation was written
KING OF THE JEWS.
27 With Him they also crucified two robbers,
one on his right the other on His left. 28 So the Scripture
was fulfilled which says, “And He was
numbered with the transgressors.”
29 And those who passed by blasphemed Him,
wagging their heads and saying, “Aha! You who destroyed
the temple and built it in three days,
save Yourself, and come down from the cross!”
31 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking
among themselves with the scribes, said, “He saved others; Himself
He cannot save,
32 Let the Christ, the King of Israel,
descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Even those who were crucified with Him
33 Now when the sixth hour had come, there was
darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, saying,
“Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “ My God, My
God, why have You forsaken Me?”
35 Some of those who stood by, when they heard
that, said, “Look he is calling for Elijah!”
36 Then someone
ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a
reed, and offered it to Him to drink, saying, “Let Him alone; let us see if
Elijah will come to take Him down.”
37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and
breathed His last.
38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two
from top to bottom.
39 So when the centurian, who stood
opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last,
he said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!”
40 There were also women looking on from afar,
among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the
Less and of Joses, and Salome,
41 who also followed Him and
ministered to Him when He was in Galilee, and many other
women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
Jesus Is Buried
42 Now when evening had come, because it was
Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath,
43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting
for the Kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, went in
to Pilate and Asked for the body of Jesus.
44 Pilate marveled
that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if
He had been dead for some time.
45 So when he found out from
the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.
46 Then he bought
fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he
laid Him in the tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and
rolled a stone against the door of the tomb.
47 And Mary
Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses
observed where He was laid.
The Resurrection of Jesus
16 Now when the
Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James,
and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
2 Very early in the morning,
on the first day of the week, they
came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
3 And they said among themselves, “Who will roll
away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?”
4 But when they
looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away — for it
was very large.
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man
clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they
6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed.
You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is
not here. See the place where they laid Him.
7 But go, tell His
disciples — and Peter — that He is going before you into
Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”
8 So they went out quickly and fled from the
tomb, for they Trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to
anyone, For they were afraid.
The Appearances of Jesus
9 Now when He rose early on the first day
of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he
had cast seven demons.
10 She went and told those who had been
with Him, as they mourned and wept.
11 And when they heard that
He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not
12 After that, He appeared in another form to
two of them as they walked and went into the country.
13 And they
went and told it to the rest, but they did
not believe them either.
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat
at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of
heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after
He had risen.
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and
preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes
and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be
17 And these signs will follow those who believe:
In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink
anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands
on the sick, and they will recover.
The Ascension of Jesus
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them,
He was received up into Heaven, and sat down at the right had of
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working
and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
