Luka 24 – לוקא כד


1And at the beginning of the week, before dawn, while it was still dark, they came to the tomb and brought the spices which they had prepared; and there were with them other women.  2And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.  3And they entered in, but they did not find the body of Yeshua.  4And it came to pass as they were confused about this, behold, two men stood above them, and their garments were shining; 5and they were afraid and bowed their faces to the ground; and they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?   6He is not here,  He has risen;  remember  what  He  spoke to you while He was in the Galil, 7saying that Ben HaAdam had to be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be executed, and rise again on the third day.”  8And they remembered His words.  9And they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven, and to the rest.  10They were Miryam of Magdala, and Yukhan, and Miryam the mother of Ya’akov, and the rest who were with them, who told these things to the Shlikhim.  11And these words appeared in their eyes as delusions; and they did not believe them.  12But Shimon rose up and ran to the tomb; and he looked in and saw the linen laid by itself, and he went away wondering in himself concerning what had happened.

13And behold, two of them were going on that day to a village called Ama’os, about sixty furlongs from Yerushalayim.  14They were talking with each other concerning all these things that had happened.  15And while they were speaking and asking each other, Yeshua came and overtook them and walked with them.  16But the sight of their eyes was such that they could not recognize Him.  17And He said to them, “What are these words that you are discussing with each other, as you walk, and are sad?”  18One of them, named K’liyopa, answered, saying to Him, “Are you alone a stranger to Yerushalayim, that you do not know what has happened in it in these days?”  19He said to them, “What things?” They said to Him, “About Yeshua of Natzrat, a man who was a Navi, mighty in word and deed before Elohim and before all the people.  20And the chief Kohanim and the elders delivered Him up to the judgment of death, and they executed Him.  21But we were hoping that He was the one to redeem Yisra’el; and behold, three days have passed since all these things happened.  22And some of our women also amazed us, for they went early to the tomb; 23and when His body was not found, they came and said to us, ‘We saw Malakhim there, and they said that He is alive.’  24And some of our men also went to the tomb, and they found it as the women had said; but they did not see Him.”  25Then Yeshua said to them, “O dull-minded, heavy-hearted, slow to believe all that the Nevi’im have spoken; 26did not Mashi’akh have to suffer all these things in order to enter into His glory?”  27And He began from Moshe and from all the Nevi’im, and interpreted to them from all the K’tuvim concerning Himself.  28And they drew near to the village to which they were going; and He made them think that He was going to a far place.  29But they urged Him and said, “Remain with us; for the day is spent and it is near dark.” So He entered to stay with them.  30And it came to pass as He sat at the table with them, He took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to them.  31And immediately their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He was taken away from them.  32And they said one to another, “Were not our hearts burning within us when He spoke with us on the road and interpreted the scriptures to us?”  33And they rose up that very hour and returned to Yerushalayim; and they found the eleven gathered together, and those who were with them, 34saying, “Truly Adoneinu has risen and has appeared to Shimon.”  35And they also reported those things that happened on the road, and how they knew Him as He broke bread.

36And while they were discussing these things, Yeshua stood among them, and said to them, “Shalom Aleikhem; it is I; do not be afraid.”  37And they were confused and frightened, for they thought they saw a spirit.”  38Yeshua said to them, “Why do you tremble, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?  39Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I; feel me and understand; for a spirit has no flesh and bones, as you see I have.”  40When He said these things, He showed them His hands and His feet.  41And as they still did not believe because of their joy, and they were bewildered, He said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”  42They gave Him a portion of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb.  43And He took it and ate before their eyes.  44And He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you when I was with you, that everything must be fulfilled which is written in the Torah of Moshe, and in the Nevi’im, and in the Tehillim, concerning me.”  45Then He opened the eyes of their minds to understand the scriptures.  46And He said to them, “Thus it is written, and it was right, that Mashi’akh should suffer and rise from the dead on the third day;  47and  that  Teshuvah should be declared in His Name for the forgiveness of sins among all nations, and the beginning will be from Yerushalayim.  48You are witnesses of these things.  49And I will send upon you the promise of Avi; but remain in the city of Yerushalayim until you are clothed with power from on high.”

50And He took them out as far as Beit Anya, and He lifted up his hands and blessed them.  51And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He parted from them and went up to Heaven.  52And they worshipped Him, and returned to Yerushalayim with great joy; 53and they were always in the Heikhal, praising and blessing Elohim.  Amein.
