约翰福音 20

耶稣复活

1周日清晨,天还未亮,抹大拉的玛丽亚就来到坟墓前,发现封住墓口的石头已经挪开了。 她赶快跑去告诉西门·彼得和耶稣所爱的那个门徒,说:“有人把主从坟墓里搬走了,不知放到哪里去了。”

彼得和那个门徒听了就出去,往坟墓那边跑。 两个人一起跑,但那个门徒比彼得跑得快,所以先到了坟墓。 他并没有进去,只是探头往里看,看见细麻布还在那里。 西门·彼得随后也来了,他进到里边,看到细麻布放在那里, 耶稣的裹头巾则卷着放在另一处,没有和细麻布放在一起。 先到的那个门徒也进来了,看见这种情形,就信了。 因为他们还不明白圣经上有关耶稣必要从死里复活的话。 10 然后,他们各自回家去了。

11 玛丽亚却站在坟墓外面哭泣,边哭边往坟墓里面看, 12 看见两个穿着白衣的天使分别坐在原来安放耶稣遗体的头脚两端。

13 天使对她说:“妇人,你为什么哭呢?”

她说:“有人把我的主搬走了,不知道放在什么地方。” 14 说完,她转过身来,看见耶稣站在那里,但她不知道那就是耶稣。

15 耶稣问她:“妇人,你为什么哭?你在找谁?”

玛丽亚还以为祂是园丁,就说:“先生,如果是你把祂搬走了,请告诉我放在哪里了,我好搬回来。”

16 耶稣说:“玛丽亚。”

玛丽亚立即转过头来用希伯来话对祂说:“拉波尼!”拉波尼的意思是老师。

17 耶稣说:“不要拉着我,我还没有升到父那里。你先去找我的众弟兄,告诉他们我要升天去见我的父,也是你们的父;去见我的上帝,也是你们的上帝。”

18 抹大拉的玛丽亚就去向门徒报讯,说:“我看见主了!”又把主对她说的话告诉门徒。

向门徒显现

19 当天晚上,即周日晚上,门徒因为害怕犹太人,把房门都关上了。忽然,耶稣来了,站在他们当中,对他们说:“愿你们平安!” 20 说完,让他们看祂的手和肋旁。门徒看见主,十分欢喜。

21 耶稣又说:“愿你们平安!父怎样差遣我,我也照样差遣你们。” 22 然后祂向他们吹了一口气,说:“你们领受圣灵吧! 23 你们赦免谁的罪,谁的罪就得到赦免;你们不赦免谁的罪,谁的罪就得不到赦免。”

向多马显现

24 耶稣显现的时候,十二个门徒中绰号“双胞胎”的多马不在场。 25 其他门徒告诉他:“我们看见主了!”可是多马说:“除非我亲眼看见祂手上的钉痕,用手摸到祂手上的钉痕和祂的肋旁,否则我决不信。”

26 过了八天,门徒又聚在一起,多马也在,门都关着。突然耶稣来了,站在他们当中说:“愿你们平安!” 27 然后对多马说:“把你的指头放在我手上摸摸看,伸出手来摸摸我的肋旁。不要怀疑,要信!”

28 多马回答说:“我的主,我的上帝!”

29 耶稣说:“你看见我才信,那些没有看见就信的人有福了。”

30 耶稣在门徒面前还行了许多神迹,只是没有记在这本书里。 31 而记载这些事的目的是为了使你们相信耶稣就是基督,是上帝的儿子,并且使你们这些信祂的人可以靠祂的名得到生命。

The Message

John 20

Resurrection!

11-2 Early in the morning on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone was moved away from the entrance. She ran at once to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, breathlessly panting, “They took the Master from the tomb. We don’t know where they’ve put him.”

3-10 Peter and the other disciple left immediately for the tomb. They ran, neck and neck. The other disciple got to the tomb first, outrunning Peter. Stooping to look in, he saw the pieces of linen cloth lying there, but he didn’t go in. Simon Peter arrived after him, entered the tomb, observed the linen cloths lying there, and the kerchief used to cover his head not lying with the linen cloths but separate, neatly folded by itself. Then the other disciple, the one who had gotten there first, went into the tomb, took one look at the evidence, and believed. No one yet knew from the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead. The disciples then went back home.

11-13 But Mary stood outside the tomb weeping. As she wept, she knelt to look into the tomb and saw two angels sitting there, dressed in white, one at the head, the other at the foot of where Jesus’ body had been laid. They said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?”

13-14 “They took my Master,” she said, “and I don’t know where they put him.” After she said this, she turned away and saw Jesus standing there. But she didn’t recognize him.

15 Jesus spoke to her, “Woman, why do you weep? Who are you looking for?”

She, thinking that he was the gardener, said, “Mister, if you took him, tell me where you put him so I can care for him.”

16 Jesus said, “Mary.”

Turning to face him, she said in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” meaning “Teacher!”

17 Jesus said, “Don’t cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.’”

18 Mary Magdalene went, telling the news to the disciples: “I saw the Master!” And she told them everything he said to her.

To Believe

19-20 Later on that day, the disciples had gathered together, but, fearful of the Jews, had locked all the doors in the house. Jesus entered, stood among them, and said, “Peace to you.” Then he showed them his hands and side.

20-21 The disciples, seeing the Master with their own eyes, were exuberant. Jesus repeated his greeting: “Peace to you. Just as the Father sent me, I send you.”

22-23 Then he took a deep breath and breathed into them. “Receive the Holy Spirit,” he said. “If you forgive someone’s sins, they’re gone for good. If you don’t forgive sins, what are you going to do with them?”

24-25 But Thomas, sometimes called the Twin, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples told him, “We saw the Master.”

But he said, “Unless I see the nail holes in his hands, put my finger in the nail holes, and stick my hand in his side, I won’t believe it.”

26 Eight days later, his disciples were again in the room. This time Thomas was with them. Jesus came through the locked doors, stood among them, and said, “Peace to you.”

27 Then he focused his attention on Thomas. “Take your finger and examine my hands. Take your hand and stick it in my side. Don’t be unbelieving. Believe.”

28 Thomas said, “My Master! My God!”

29 Jesus said, “So, you believe because you’ve seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing.”

30-31 Jesus provided far more God-revealing signs than are written down in this book. These are written down so you will believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and in the act of believing, have real and eternal life in the way he personally revealed it.
