Yokhanan 20 – יוחנן כ


1At the beginning of the week, very early while it was still dark, Miryam of Magdala came to the tomb; and she saw that the stone was removed from the tomb.  2Then she ran and came to Shimon Kefa and to the other Talmid, whom Yeshua loved, and she said to them, “They have taken Adoneinu out of that tomb, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”  3So Shimon and the other Talmid went out and came to the tomb.  4And they were both running together; but that Talmid outran Shimon and came first to the tomb.  5And he looked in and saw the linen cloths lying; but he did not enter in.  6Then Shimon came after him and entered into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, 7and the cloth which was bound around His head was not with the linen cloths, but was wrapped up and put in a place by itself.  8Then the other Talmid who had come first to the tomb also entered in, and he saw, and trusted.  9For they did not yet understand from the scripture that He had to rise from the dead.  10So the Talmidim went away again to their lodging place.

11But Miryam was standing near the tomb weeping; and as she wept, she looked into the tomb; 12and she saw two Malakhim in white sitting one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Yeshua had lain.  13And they said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away My Adon, and I do not know where they have laid him.”  14She said this and turned around and saw Yeshua standing, but she did not know that it was Yeshua.  15Yeshua said to her, “Woman, why do you weep, and whom do you want?” She thought He was the gardener, so she said to Him, “My Adon, if you are the one who has taken Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will go and take Him away.”  16Yeshua said to her, “Miryam!” She turned around and said to Him in Ivrit “Rabuli!” which is to say, “Teacher.”  17Yeshua said to her, “Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to Avi; but go to my brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to Avi and Avikhem, my Elohim and your Elohim.’”  18Then Miryam of Magdala came and brought glad tidings to the Talmidim, that she had seen Adoneinu and that He had told her these things.

19When it was evening on the first day of the week, and the doors were shut where the Talmidim were staying for fear of the Y’hudim, Yeshua came, stood among them, and said to them, “Shalom Lakhem.”  20He said this, and then He showed them His hands and His side. The Talmidim rejoiced when they saw Adoneinu.  21Then Yeshua said to them again, “Shalom Lakhem; just as Avi has sent me, so I send you.”  22And when He had said these things, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive The Ru’akh HaKodesh; 23if you forgive a man his sins, they shall be forgiven to him; and if you withhold forgiveness of a man’s sins, they are kept.”  24But T’oma, one of the twelve, who is called the Twin, was not there with them when Yeshua came.  25And the Talmidim said to him, “We have seen Adoneinu.” He said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the marks of the nails, and put my fingers in them, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”  

26Eight days later, the Talmidim were again indoors, and T’oma with them. Yeshua came when the doors were locked and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Shalom Aleikhem.”  27Then He said to T’oma, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and reach out your hand and put it into my side; and be not untrusting, but trusting.”  28T’oma answered, saying to Him, “Adonai v’Elohai!”  29Yeshua said to him, “Now you trust because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen me, and have trusted.”  30Many other miracles Yeshua did in the presence of His Talmidim, which are not written in this book; 31even these are written, so that you may trust that Yeshua is the Mashi’akh, Ben HaElohim; and when you trust, you shall have Khayei Olam in His Name.
