20:1 Τῃ̂ δὲ μιᾳ̂ τω̂ν σαββάτων Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ ʼέρχεται πρωὶ σκοτίας ʼέτι οʼύσης εἰς τὸ μνημει̂ον, καὶ βλέπει τὸν λίθον ἡρμένον ἐκ του̂ μνημείου, 20:2 τρέχει οʼυ̂ν καὶ ʼέρχεται πρὸς Σίμωνα Πέτρον καὶ πρὸς τὸν ʼάλλον μαθητὴν ʽόν ἐφίλει ὁ ʼΙησου̂ς, καὶ λέγει αὐτοι̂ς. ʽη̂ραν τὸν κύριον ἐκ του̂ μνημείου, καὶ οὐκ οʼίδαμεν που̂ ʼέθηκαν αὐτόν. 20:3 ʼΕξη̂λθεν οʼυ̂ν ὁ Πέτρος καὶ ὁ ʼάλλος μαθητής, καὶ ʼήρχοντο εἰς τὸ μνημει̂ον. 20:4 ʼέτρεχον δὲ οἱ δύο ὁμου̂. καὶ ὁ ʼάλλος μαθητὴς προέδραμεν τάχιον του̂ Πέτρου, καὶ ʼη̂λθεν πρω̂τος εἰς τὸ μνημει̂ον, 20:5 καὶ παρακύψας βλέπει κείμενα τὰ ὀθόνια, οὐ μέντοι εἰση̂λθεν. 20:6 ʼέρχεται οʼυ̂ν καὶ Σίμων Πέτρος ἀκολουθω̂ν αὐτῳ̂, καὶ εἰση̂λθεν εἰς τὸ μνημει̂ον, καὶ θεωρει̂ τὰ ὀθόνια κείμενα , 20:7 καὶ τὸ σουδάριον, ʽὸ ʼη̂ν ἐπὶ τη̂ς κεφαλη̂ς αὐτου̂, οὐ μετὰ τω̂ν ὀθονίων κείμενον ἀλλὰ χωρὶς ἐντετυλιγμένον εἰς ʽένα τόπον. 20:8 τότε οʼυ̂ν εἰση̂λθεν καὶ ὁ ʼάλλος μαθητὴς ὁ ἐλθὼν πρω̂τος εἰς τὸ μνημει̂ον, καὶ εʼι̂δεν καὶ ἐπίστευσεν. 20:9 οὐδέπω γὰρ ʼῄδεισαν τὴν γραφὴν ʽότι δει̂ αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρω̂ν ἀναστη̂ναι. 20:10 ἀπη̂λθον οʼυ̂ν πάλιν πρὸς αὐτοὺς οἱ μαθηταί.

Translation

From the King James version:
20:1 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 down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
Romans 3:28 (memory verse) --
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
