Events of the Lord's Resurrection in Chronological Order (Scripture quotations from NAS)
 
Matthew 28
Mark 16
Luke 24
John 20
1. Earthquake & angel rolls the stone from the door, sits upon the stone, and the guards faint.

2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his garment as white as snow; 4 and the guards shook for fear of him, and  became like dead men.
2. Mary Magdalene arrives at the tomb before dawn
1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away  from the tomb.
3. Other sisters arrive at the tomb when the sun had risen. They enter the tomb together with Mary Magdalene.
1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.
1 And when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
 2 And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
 3 And they were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"
 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large. 
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.
 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4. Mary Magdalene runs to tell  Peter & John
 2a And so she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved,
5. Angels appear to the other sisters after Mary Magdalene had run to tell Peter and John. These sisters leave the tomb to tell the disciples according to the command of the angel.
5 And the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
 6 "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
 7 "And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."
 8 And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed.
 6 And he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.
 7 "But go, tell His disciples and Peter, 'He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He said to you.'"
 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
4 And it happened that while they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling apparel;
 5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?
 6 "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,
 7 saying that 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,
 9a and returned from the tomb  
6. Mary M tells Peter and John, and they run with Mary M back to the tomb.
12 But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at that which had happened.
2b 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 do not know where they have laid Him."3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb.
 4 And the two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter, and came to the tomb first;
 5 and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.
 6 Simon Peter therefore also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he beheld the linen wrappings lying there,
 7 and the face-cloth, which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.
 8 So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb entered then also, and he saw and believed.
 9 For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
 10 So the disciples went away again to their own homes. 
7. Jesus appears to Mary M before ascending to the Father
 9 And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshipped Him.
 10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they shall see Me."
9 Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons.
John 20:11 But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb;
 12  and she beheld two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying.
 13 And they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him."
 14 When she had said this, she turned around, and beheld Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus.
 15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" Supposing Him to be the gardener, she 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 and said to Him in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which means, Teacher).
 17 Jesus said to her, "Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'" 
8. Jesus ascends to the Father, entering the Holy of Holies in heaven, receiving all authority
Eph 1:19  and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. {These are} in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20  which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly {places,} 21  far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22  And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church,
2:5  even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6  and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly {places} in Christ Jesus,
4:8  Therefore it says, "WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH, HE LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN."
9  (Now this {expression,} "He ascended," what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10  He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.)
Heb 9:11 But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come to be, passing through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, that is, not belonging to this creation,
 12 he entered once for all into the sanctuary, not with the blood of goats and calves but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.
 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkling of a heifer's ashes can sanctify those who are defiled so that their flesh is cleansed,
 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to worship the living God.
23 Therefore, it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified by these rites, but the heavenly things themselves by better sacrifices than these.
24  For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a {mere} copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
 Ps 2:7  "I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, 'Thou art My Son, Today I have begotten Thee.
 8 'Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Thy possession.
Acts 13:33 that God has fulfilled this promise to us, their children, in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, 'Thou art My Son; today I have begotten Thee.'
Rom 1:3 concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh,
 4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,
Rev 5:1  I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?" 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it. 4 Then I {began} to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; 5 and one of the elders said to me, "Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals."
6 And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. 7 And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 8 When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying, "Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood {men} from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. 10 "You have made them {to be} a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth." 11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing." 13 And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, "To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, {be} blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever." 14 And the four living creatures kept saying, "Amen." And the elders fell down and worshipped.
Lev 23:10 "Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you come into the land which I am giving you, and reap your harvest, you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest,
 11 who shall wave the sheaf before the LORD that it may be acceptable for you. On the day after the Sabbath the priest shall do this.
 12 On this day, when your sheaf is waved, you shall offer to the LORD for a burnt-offering an unblemished yearling lamb.
 13 Its cereal offering shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, as a sweet-smelling oblation to the LORD; and its libation shall be a fourth of a hin of wine.
 14 Until this day, when you bring your God this offering, you shall not eat any bread or roasted grain or fresh kernels. This shall be a perpetual statute for you and your descendants wherever you dwell.
 15 "Beginning with the day after the Sabbath, the day on which you bring the wave-offering sheaf, you shall count seven full weeks,
16 and then on the day after the seventh week, the fiftieth day, you shall present the new cereal offering to the LORD.
9. Chief priests bribe the tomb guards
Matt 28:11 Now while they were on their way, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened.
 12 And when they had assembled with the elders and counseled together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
 13 and said, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep.'
 14 "And if this should come to the governor's ears, we will win him over and keep you out of trouble."
 15 And they took the money and did as they had been instructed; and this story was widely spread among the Jews, and is to this day. 
10. The other sisters tell the disciples what the angels had told them.  
Lk 24:9b and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.
 11 And these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.
11. Two disciples leave for Emmaus after hearing the sisters' report about the angels
Lk 24:13 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem.
...
 22 "But also some women among us amazed us. When they were at the tomb early in the morning,
 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive.
 24 "And some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see."
12. Mary M tells the disciples that she has seen Jesus
10 She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping.
 11 And when they heard that He was alive, and had been seen by her, they refused to believe it. 
18 Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He had said these things to her.
13. Jesus appears to the 2 disciples on the road to Emmaus
 12 And after that, He appeared in a different form to two of them, while they were walking along on their way to the country.
 Lk 24:13 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem.
 14 And they were conversing with each other about all these things which had taken place.
 15 And it came about that while they were conversing and discussing, Jesus Himself approached, and began traveling with them.
 16 But their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him.
 17 And He said to them, "What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?" And they stood still, looking sad.
 18 And one of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, "Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?"
 19 And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people,
 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him up to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.
 21 "But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened.
 22 "But also some women among us amazed us. When they were at the tomb early in the morning,
 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive.
 24 "And some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see."
 25 And He said to them, "O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
 26 "Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?"
 27 And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
 28 And they approached the village where they were going, and He acted as though He would go farther.
 29 And they urged Him, saying, "Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over." And He went in to stay with them.
 30 And it came about that when He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them.
 31 And their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.
 32 And they said to one another, "Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?" 
14. Jesus appears to Peter 
34 saying, "The Lord has really risen, and has appeared to Simon."
 1 Cor 15:5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
15. The 2 disciples return from Emmaus and tell the other disciples 
 13 And they went away and reported it to the others, but they did not believe them either.

 33a And they arose that very hour and returned to Jerusalem,
16. The 2 disciples who had returned from Emmaus tell the 11 apostles 
Lk 24:33b and found gathered together the eleven and those who were with them,
 34 saying, "The Lord has really risen, and has appeared to Simon."
 35 And they began to relate their experiences on the road and how He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.
17. Thomas leaves the meeting while the 2 brothers share how the Lord met them on the road to Emmaus 
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
18. Jesus appears to the disciples without Thomas
 36 And while they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst.
 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.
 38 And He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?
 39 "See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have."
 40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
 41 And while they still could not believe it for joy and were marveling, He said to them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
 42 And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish;
 43 and He took it and ate it before them.
19 When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you."
 20 And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
 21 Jesus therefore said to them again, "Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
 23 "If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained."
 24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
 25 The other disciples therefore were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I shall see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe." 
19. Jesus appears to the disciples 8 days later with Thomas, and including Matthias
 1 Cor 15:5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
Jn 20:26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace {be} with you." 27 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing." 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" 29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed {are} they who did not see, and {yet} believed. 
20. Disciples go to Galilee
16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 
21. Jesus appears to disciples fishing
John 21:1 After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples. 3 Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will also come with you." They went out, and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 5 Jesus therefore said to them, "Children, you do not have any fish, do you?" They answered Him, "No." 6 And He said to them, "Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you will find a catch." They cast therefore, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.
7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." And so when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea.  8 But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.
9 And so when they got out upon the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid, and fish placed on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have now caught." 11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.
12 Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples ventured to question Him, "Who are You?" knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread, and gave them, and the fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.
 15 So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Tend My lambs." 16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Shepherd My sheep."  17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Tend My sheep. 18 "Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself, and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go." 19 Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me!"
 20 Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His breast at the supper, and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?" 21 Peter therefore seeing him said to Jesus, "Lord, and what about this man?" 22 Jesus said to him, "If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!" 23 This saying therefore went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, "If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?" 24 This is the disciple who bears witness of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his witness is true. 
22. Jesus trains the disciples in Galilee
17 And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him; but some were doubtful.
 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
 19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

1 Cor 15: 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;
 7 then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles;
15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
 16 "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.
 17 "And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues;
 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
44 Now He said to them, "These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled."
 45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
 46 and He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead the third day;
 47 and that repentance for forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
 48 "You are witnesses of these things.
49 "And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high."
Acts 1:3 To these He also presented Himself alive, after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days, and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.
4 And gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me;
 5 for John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
 6 And so when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?"
 7 He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;
 8 but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." 
23. Jesus ascends into heaven from the Mt of Olives outside Jerusalem.
Zec 14:3 Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.
 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
 19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
 50 And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
 51 And it came about that while He was blessing them, He parted from them.
 52 And they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
Acts 1:9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
 10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them;
 11 and they also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven."
 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey away.
13 And when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying; that is, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of James.
