The scriptures below are from the WEB Bible.
18) Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this; because when his mother, Mary, had been engaged to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
19) Joseph, her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, intended to put her away secretly.
20) But when he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, you son of David, don‘t be afraid to take to yourself Mary, your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
21) She shall bring forth a son. You shall call his name JESUS, for it is he who shall save his people from their sins."
22) Now all this has happened, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
23) "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son. They shall call his name Immanuel;" which is, being interpreted, "God with us."
24) Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took his wife to himself;
41) His parents went every year to Jerusalem at the feast of the Passover.
42) When he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast,
43) and when they had fulfilled the days, as they were returning, the boy, Jesus, stayed behind in Jerusalem. Joseph and his mother didn‘t know it,
44) but supposing him to be in the company, they went a day‘s journey, and they looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances.
45) When they didn‘t find him, they returned to Jerusalem, looking for him.
46) It happened, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them, and asking them questions.
47) All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.
48) When they saw him, they were astonished, and his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us this way? Behold, your father and I were anxiously looking for you."
49) He said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Didn‘t you know that I must be in my Father‘s house?"
50) They didn‘t understand the saying which he spoke to them.
51) He went down with them, and came to Nazareth. He was subject to them, and his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
52) Jesus advanced in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
21) Now it happened, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the sky was opened,
22) and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, on him, and a voice came out of the sky, saying "You are my beloved Son. In you I am well pleased."
14) Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news about him spread through all the surrounding area.
15) He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
16) He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. He entered, as was his custom, into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
17) The book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. He opened the book, and found the place where it was written,
18) "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, Because he anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim release to the captives, Recovering of sight to the blind, To deliver those who are crushed,
19) And to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
20) He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21) He began to tell them, "Today, this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
31) He came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. He was teaching them on the Sabbath day,
32) and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority.
33) In the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice,
34) saying, "Ah! what have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!"
35) Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" When the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
36) Amazement came on all, and they spoke together, one with another, saying, "What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!"
37) News about him went forth into every place of the surrounding region.
17) It happened on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every village of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. The power of the Lord was with him to heal them.
18) Behold, men brought a paralyzed man on a cot, and they sought to bring him in to lay before him.
19) Not finding a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his cot into the midst before Jesus.
20) Seeing their faith, he said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you."
21) The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
22) But Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, answered them, "Why are you reasoning so in your hearts?
23) Which is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you;‘ or to say, ‘Arise and walk?‘
24) But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins" (he said to the paralyzed man), "I tell you, arise, and take up your cot, and go to your house."
25) Immediately he rose up before them, and took up that which he was laying on, and departed to his house, glorifying God.
26) Amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God. They were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today."
16) Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led him away.
17) He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called "The place of a skull," which is called in Hebrew, "Golgotha,"
18) where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.
19) Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, "JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS."
20) Therefore many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.
21) The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, "Don‘t write, ‘The King of the Jews,‘ but that, ‘he said, I am King of the Jews.‘"
22) Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
23) Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also the coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24) Then they said to one another, "Let‘s not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it will be," that the scripture might be fulfilled, which says, "They parted my garments among them, For my cloak they cast lots." Therefore the soldiers did these things.
25) But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother‘s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26) Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
27) Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" From that hour, the disciple took her to his own home.
28) After this, Jesus, seeing that all things were now finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I am thirsty."
29) Now a vessel full of vinegar was set there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop, and brought it to his mouth.
30) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished." He bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
31) Therefore the Jews, because it was the Preparation, so that the bodies wouldn‘t remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special one), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
32) Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him;
33) but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they didn‘t break his legs.
34) However one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
35) He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, that you also may believe.
36) For these things happened, that the scripture might be fulfilled, "A bone of him will not be broken."
37) Again another scripture says, "They will look on him whom they pierced."
38) After these things, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away Jesus‘ body. Pilate gave him permission. He came therefore, and took away his body.
39) Nicodemus also came, he who at first came to Jesus by night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred Roman pounds.
40) So they took Jesus‘ body, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
41) Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden. In the garden a new tomb in which no man had ever yet been laid.
42) Then because of the Jews‘ Preparation (for the tomb was near at hand) they laid Jesus there.
1) Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came early, while it was yet dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.
2) She ran therefore, and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don‘t know where they have laid him!"
3) Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the tomb.
4) They both ran together. The other disciple outran Peter, and came to the tomb first.
5) Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he didn‘t enter in.
6) Then Simon Peter came, following him, and entered into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying,
7) and the cloth that was on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself.
8) Then the other disciple also entered in therefore, who came first to the tomb, and he saw, and believed.
9) For as yet they didn‘t know the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
10) So the disciples went away again to their own homes.
11) But Mary was standing outside at the tomb weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb,
12) and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13) They told her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don‘t know where they have laid him."
14) When she had said this, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and didn‘t know that it was Jesus.
15) Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?" She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."
16) Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned herself, and said to him, "Rhabbouni!" which is to say, "Teacher!"
17) Jesus said to her, "Don‘t touch me, for I haven‘t yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brothers, and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.‘"
18) Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had said these things to her.
19) When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were locked where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be to you."
20) When he had said this, he showed to them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad when they saw the Lord.
21) Jesus therefore said to them again, "Peace be to you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you."
22) When he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit!
