The Gospel of John 65 Mary of Magdala Sees the Risen Lord 11 But Mary stood outside opposite the tomb crying. Then as she was crying she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white sitting there one at the head and one at the feet where Jesus body had been lying. 13 And they said to her Woman why are you crying Because they have taken away my Lord she told them and I dont know where they have put Him. 14 And having said this she turned around and saw Jesus standing there. But she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Woman Jesus said to her why are you crying Who is it youre looking for Supposing that it was the gardener she said to Him Sir if you have removed Him tell me where you have put Him and I will take Him away. 16 Jesus said to her Mary Turning around she said to Him Rabboni which means Teacher. 17 Dont cling to Me Jesus told her since I have not yet as- cended to My Father. But go to My brothers and tell them I am ascending to My Father and your FatherMy God and your God. 18 Mary of Magdala went to report to the disciples that she had seen the Lord and He had told her these things. The Disciples Commissioned 19 When it was evening on that day the first day of the week and the doors were locked where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews Jesus came and stood among them. And He said to them Peace to you 20 And having said this He showed them His hands and His side. So the disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again Peace to you Just as the Father has sent Me I also send you. 22 Having said this He breathed on them and said to them Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any they are forgiven them if you retain the sins of any they are retained.
