MARY MAGDALENE CALLS ST. PETER AND ST. JOHN. Luke xxiv. 12.

John xx. 1-10.

1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 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 †.

3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping

unto the sepulchre, and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves,

and departed,

wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

OUR LORD APPEARS TO MARY MAGDALENE. John xx. 11-18.

:

11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 12 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. 13 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. 14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

THE WOMEN IN ST. LUKE'S ACCOUNT.

Luke xxiv. 1—11.

1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 and as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how

THE DISCIPLES GOING TO EMMAUS. Mark xvi. 12.

he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying,

7 The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 And they remembered his words, 9 and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles*. 11 And their

words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them

not.

Luke xxiv. 13-32.

13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about

Yea, and

certain women also of our
company made us astonished,
which were early at the sepul-
chre; 23 and when they found
not his body, they came, say-
ing, that they had also seen a
vision of angels, which said
that he was alive.
24 And
certain of them which were
with us went to the sepulchre,
and found it even so as the
women had said; but him they
saw not. 25 Then he said unto
them, O fools, and slow of
heart to believe all that
the prophets have spoken:
26 ought not Christ to have
suffered these things, and to
enter into his glory? 27 And
beginning at Moses, and all
the prophets, he expounded
unto them in all the scriptures
the things concerning himself.
28 And they drew nigh unto
the village, whither they went :
and he made as though he
would have gone further.
29 But they constrained him,
saying, Abide with us, for it is
toward evening, and the day
is far spent. And he went in
to tarry with them. 30 And it
came to pass as he sat at meat
with them, he took bread, and
blessed it, and brake, and gave
