Chapter 20
001
Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.
002
Therefore he ran and came to Simona Petra, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Domina out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have laid her!"
003
Therefore Petra and the other disciple went out, and they went toward the tomb.
004
They both ran together. The other disciple outran Petra, and came to the tomb first.
005
Stooping and looking in, she saw the linen cloths lying, yet she didn't enter in.
006
Then Simona Petra came, following her, and entered into the tomb. She saw the linen cloths lying,
007
and the cloth that had been on her head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself.
008
So then the other disciple who came first to the tomb also entered in, and she saw and believed.
009
For as yet they didn't know the Scripture, that she must rise from the dead.
010
So the disciples went away again to their own homes.
011
But Mary was standing outside at the tomb weeping. So, as he wept, he stooped and looked into the tomb,
012
and he saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
013
They told him, "Man, why are you weeping?" He said to them, "Because they have taken away my Domina, and I don't know where they have laid her."
014
When he had said this, he turned around and saw Jesus standing, and didn't know that it was Jesus.
015
Jesus said to him, "Man, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?" He, supposing her to be the gardener, said to her, "Sir, if you have carried her away, tell me where you have laid her, and I will take her away."
016
Jesus said to him, "Mary." He turned and said to her, "Rhabbouni!" which is to say, "Teacher!"
017
Jesus said to him, "Don't touch me, for I haven't yet ascended to my Mother; but go to my sisters, and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Mother and your Mother, to my God and your God.'"
018
Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that he had seen the Domina, and that she had said these things to him.
019
When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were locked where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be to you."
020
When she had said this, she showed them her hands and her side. The disciples therefore were glad when they saw the Domina.
021
Jesus therefore said to them again, "Peace be to you. As the Mother has sent me, even so I send you."
022
When she had said this, she breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit!
023
Whoever's sins you forgive, they are forgiven them. Whoever's sins you retain, they have been retained."
024
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, wasn't with them when Jesus came.
025
The other disciples therefore said to her, "We have seen the Domina!" But she said to them, "Unless I see in her hands the print of the nails, and put my hand into her side, I will not believe."
026
After eight days again her disciples were inside, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, the doors being locked, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be to you."
027
Then she said to Thomas, "Reach here your finger, and see my hands. Reach here your hand, and put it into my side. Don't be unbelieving, but believing."
028
Thomas answered her, "My Domina and my God!"
029
Jesus said to her, "Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed."
030
Therefore Jesus did many other signs in the presence of her disciples, which are not written in this book;
031
but these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Daughter of God, and that believing you may have life in her name.
