Luke 24 : 1 – 12
Women Visit the Garden Tomb
1 Now on the first day of the week, at daybreak, the women came to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared.
2 They found the stone had been rolled away from the tomb;
3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Yeshua.
4 And while they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them.
5 The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you search for the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but He is risen! Remember what He told you when He was still in the Galilee,
7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be executed, and on the third day rise up.”
8 And they were reminded of His words.
9 And when they returned from the tomb, they told all these things to the eleven and to everyone else.
10 Now it was Miriam from Magdala, Joanna, the Miriam of Jacob and others together with them who were telling these things to the emissaries.
John 12 : 41 – 50
41 Isaiah said these things because he saw His glory and spoke of Him.
42 Nevertheless many, even among the leaders, put their trust in Him. But because of the Pharisees, they were not confessing Yeshua, so they would not be thrown out of the synagogue;
43 for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.
44 Yeshua cried out, “Whoever puts trust in Me believes not in Me but in the One who sent Me!
45 And whoever beholds Me beholds the One who sent Me.
46 As light I have come into the world, so that everyone who trusts in Me should not remain in darkness.
47 “If anyone hears My words but doesn’t keep them, I do not judge him; for I came to save the world, not to judge the world.
48 The one who rejects Me and doesn’t receive My words has a judge; the word I spoke will judge him on the last day.
49 For I did not speak on My own, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and speak.
50 And I know that His commandment is life everlasting. Therefore what I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.”
