The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons
2 Corinthians 5:11-21
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God, and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. 12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have something to answer those who glory in appearance and not in heart. 13 For if we be beside ourselves, it is for God; if we be soberminded, it is for your cause.
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge that if One died for all, then all were dead; 15 and that He died for all, that those who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them and rose again. 16 Therefore, henceforth know we no man according to the flesh; yea, though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now henceforth we know Him so no more.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the Word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were beseeching you by us: we pray you on Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
John 20:1-2, 11-18
1 On the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher and saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said unto them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him!"
11 But Mary stood outside at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher, 12 and saw two angels in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 And they said unto her, "Woman, why weepest thou?" She said 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 around and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said unto her,
She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, "Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away." 16 Jesus said unto her,
She turned herself and said unto Him, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, "Master"). 17 Jesus said unto her,
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her.
