The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation [day], [so] that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day [special one],) besought [asked] Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they [their bodies WU] might be taken away. JH 19:31 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. JH 19:32 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: JH 19:33 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith [immediately] came there out blood and water. JH 19:34 And he that saw it bare record [has testified], and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. JH 19:35 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. JH 19:36 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. JH 19:37
And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought [asked] Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave [permission]. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. JH 19:38 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first [previously WU] came to Jesus by night, and [he WU] brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight [seventy-five pounds]. JH 19:39 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. JH 19:40 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre [tomb], wherein [in which] was never man yet laid. JH 19:41 There laid they Jesus therefore because of [it was WU] the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh [near] at hand. JH 19:42
The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre [tomb], and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre [entrance WU]. JH 20:1 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. JH 20:2 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. JH 20:3 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. JH 20:4 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the [strips of WU] linen clothes lying [there WU]; yet went he not in. JH 20:5 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, JH 20:6 And the napkin [cloth], that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. JH 20:7 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. JH 20:8 For as yet they knew [understood WU] not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. JH 20:9
Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. JH 20:10 But Mary stood without [outside] at the sepulchre [tomb] weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, JH 20:11 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. JH 20:12 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him. JH 20:13
And when she had thus said, she turned herself back [around], and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. JH 20:14 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne [carried] him hence [away], tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. JH 20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master [Teacher]. JH 20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren [brothers], and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. JH 20:17
Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her. JH 20:18
