Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to him in Hebrew,
"Rabboni!" (which means, Teacher). Jesus said to her, "Stop clinging to
me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren and
say to them, 'I ascend to my father and your father, and my God and your
God.'" Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, "I have seen the
Lord," and that he had said these things to her.
So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when
the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus
came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you." And
when he had said this, he showed them both his hands and his side. The
disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them
again, "Peace be with you; as the Father has sent me, I also send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive
the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been
forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained."
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when
Jesus came. So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the
Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the imprint of the
nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into
his side, I will not believe."
After eight days his disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them.
Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said,
"Peace be with you." Then he said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger,
and see my hands; and reach here your hand and put it into my side; and do
not be unbelieving, but believing." Thomas answered and said to him, "My
Lord and my God!"
