John 20:1 The first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre.(an above ground burial vault).and saw the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

John 20:2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Emmanuel loved.(this was John).and said unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre.(a usually above ground burial vault).and we know not where they have laid him.

John 20:3 Peter therefore went forth and that other disciple.(John).and came to the sepulchre.

John 20:4 So they ran both together and the other disciple did outrun Peter and came first to the sepulchre.

John 20:5-9 And he stooping down and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying, yet went he not in. Then came Simon Peter following him and went into the sepulchre and saw the linen clothes lie and the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again.(word 'again' not in original).from the dead..(*)

John 20:10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

John 20:11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping. And as she wept, she stooped down and looked into the sepulchre, 

John 20:12 And seeing two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Emmanuel had lain.

John 20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why are you weeping? She said unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid him.

John 20:14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back and saw Emmanuel standing and knew not that it was Emmanuel. 

John 20:15 Emmanuel said unto her, Woman, why are you weeping? Whom do you seek? She, supposing him to be the gardener said unto him, Sir if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him and I will take him away.

John 20:16 Emmanuel said unto her, Mary. She turned herself and said unto him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master.(a term meaning great respect).

John 20:17 Emmanuel said unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father, but go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.

John 20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples.(Matthew 10:1).that she had seen the Lord and that he had spoken these things unto her.

John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Emmanuel and stood in the midst and said unto them, Peace be unto you.

John 20:20 And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

John 20:21 Then said Emmanuel to them again, Peace be unto you. As my Father has sent me, even so send I you.

John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said unto them, Receive you the Holy Ghost.

John 20:23 Whose soever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them and whose soever sins you retain they are retained..(they had the ability to determine who they wished to pass the power of God onto)

John 20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus.(the surname of Thomas), was not with them when Emmanuel came.

John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he.(Thomas).said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails.(from Him being crucified).and put my finger into the print of the nails and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within and Thomas with them. Then came Emmanuel, the doors being shut and stood in the midst.(Emmanuel materialized right there in the room).and said, Peace be unto you.

John 20:27 Then said he to Thomas, Reach hither your finger and behold.(take notice of).my hands and reach hither your hand and thrust it into my side and be not faithless, but believing.

Christ had gone to what is called heaven to be received of the Father and came back. They now could touch him: verse 17 above and Acts 1:3.

John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

John 20:29 Emmanuel said unto him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.

Hebrews 11:13 "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were persuaded of them and embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." 1Peter 1:8 "Whom having not seen, you love; in whom, though now you see him not, yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory." Colossians 1:15 "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature."

This scripture shows there was a blessing, a deep knowing, a sureness not based on having to physically experience something first, in those who 'saw' by faith, that is, they just knew and that because their minds were on God when there were anomalistic.circumstances to consider. Today we call it our 'gut feeling'. And what about that?

John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Emmanuel in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.

Why He did all that was because He wanted His disciples to know He came from God and that He cared for others, having compassion on them. He wasn't yet in the position of taking care of all mankind, but now He is:.Romans 11:26; 1Timothy 2:4; 2Timothy 1:9.

John 20:31 But these are written that you might believe.(1Corinthians 10:11).that Emmanuel is the Christ the Son of God and that believing you might have life through his name.(what's His name mean?).
