It is a harmonization of all that the different evangelists related about the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a complementary way and developing a temporal sequence of the different events and episodes. The work is based on the Reina Valera translation of 1960 with its same words. At the time for me, since the work I only did for my personal study, it represented a satisfaction and a vision quiebro different from what I had when I read the different stories of each evangelist separately with their particular contributions. Maybe today, some episode could merit a review and be undoubtedly improved, but still, even in its current state, I think it could be a blessing for readers. As a preliminary warning I should make it clear that this "harmonization" of the testimonies , it is fallible and personal, because although it is built on the basis of what the various inspired authors wrote, inspiration only covers what they wrote and in the way they did it, not how we can harmonize it. I am sure that it is much more reliable and vivo than the visions of any mysticism. There he goes. Pablo Blanco JESUS PRAYS IN GETSEMANIY leaving, he went, as he used to, to the Mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane. And when he came to that place, he said to his disciples, Sit here, while I go there and pray. And taking Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sad and greatly distressed. Then Jesus said to them: My soul is very sad, until death; Stay here, and watch with me and pray that you do not enter into temptation. Going forward a little, he moved away from them at a distance like a stone's throw; and on his knees he prostrated himself on his face, praying and saying: My Father, if it is possible and if you wish, let this cup pass from me; but not as I want, but as you. So he prayed that if it were possible, that hour would pass from him. And he said: Abba, Father, all things are possible for you; remove this cup from me; but not what I want, but what you. And an angel from heaven appeared to strengthen him. And being in agony, he prayed more intensely; and it was his sweat like great drops of blood that fell to the earth. When he got up from the prayer, he came to his disciples, and found them sleeping because of the sadness, and said to Peter: So you could not watch with me one hour ?. And he said to them: Why do you sleep? Arise, watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Again he went and prayed a second time, saying: My Father, if this cup can not pass from me without me drinking it, your will be done. He came again and found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy with sleep , and they did not know what to answer. And leaving them, he went again, and prayed for the third time, saying the same words. Then he came to his disciples and said: Enough. Sleep now, and rest. Behold, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. Jesus having said these things, went out with his disciples on the other side of the Kidron stream, where there was a garden, in which he entered with his disciples. JUDAS BETRAYS JESUS Also, Judas, the one who gave him, knew that place, because many times Jesus had met there with his disciples. Judas, therefore, taking a company of soldiers, and alguazils of the chief priests and of the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches, and with weapons. Jesus said to his disciples: Get up, come on; see, the one who gives me is coming. While he was still speaking, a mob appeared; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and with him many people with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, and from the scribes and elders of the people. And he who gave him had given them a sign, saying: Whom I shall kiss, that is; arrest him and take him safely. And immediately, when he came, he went to him to kiss him, and said: Hail Master. And he kissed him. And Jesus said to him: Friend, why do you come? Then Jesus said to him: Judas, with a kiss you give to the Son of Man? But Jesus, knowing all the things that were to come to him, came forward and said: Who are you looking for? They answered him: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said to them: I am. When he told them: I am, they fell back, and fell to the ground. He went back to ask them: Who are you looking for? And they said: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered: I have told you that I am; If you seek me, let these people go. So that what he had said would be fulfilled: Of those you gave me, I lost none. Then they approached and seized Jesus, and seized him. PETER HIERE MALCOWith those who were with him what was about to happen, they said to him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword? And one of those who were with Jesus, Simon Peter, who had a sword, extended his hand, drew his sword, and wounded a servant of the high priest, whose name was Malchus, and took off his right ear. Then Jesus said to him: Return your sword to its place, in its sheath; for everyone who takes a sword will perish by the sword. The cup that the Father has given me, shall I not drink it? Do you think that I can not now pray to my Father, and that he would not give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it is necessary that this be done? Then Jesus said: Enough is enough; leave And touching his ear, he healed him. JESUS PRISONER IS DRIVEN TO HOUSE OF ANASY Jesus said to the chief priests, to the chiefs of the temple guard and to the elders, who had come against him: How against a thief you have come out with swords and sticks to catch me? Having been with you every day in the temple, and I sat with you teaching in the temple, and you did not take me, nor stretch out your hands against me; but it is so and all this happens so that the Scriptures are fulfilled. This is your hour, and the power of darkness. Then all the disciples, leaving him, fled. And the company of soldiers, the tribune and the constables of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him, but a certain young man followed him, covered his body with a sheet; and they seized him; but he, leaving the sheet, fled naked. And they brought him first to Annas; because he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. (It was Caiaphas who had given the advice to the Jews, that it was convenient for one man to die for the people). And the high priest asked Jesus about his disciples and his doctrine. Jesus answered him: I have publicly spoken to the world; I have always taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jews gather, and I have spoken nothing in secret. Why are you asking me? Ask those who have heard, what I have spoken to you; behold, they know what I have said. When Jesus had said this, one of the officers, who was there, slapped him, saying: So you answer the high priest? Jesus replied: If I have spoken badly, testify what evil is; and although, why are you hitting me? And Annas then sent him bound to Caiaphas, the high priest.JESUS BEFORE CHIEFS AND THE NEGATION OF PEDLEPSThey seized Jesus and took him to the high priest Caiaphas, where the scribes and elders were gathered, and they followed Jesus Simon Peter and another disciple . And this disciple was known to the high priest, and entered with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. They brought Jesus to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes met. But Peter followed him from afar and was outside, at the door of the house of the high priest. So the disciple who was acquainted with the high priest came out and spoke to the concierge, and brought Peter into the homeland. And entering, having them – the alguaciles – lit fire in the middle of the patio, they sat around; and Peter also sat among them, warming himself to the fire, to see the end. While Peter was down in the courtyard, came one of the servants, the concierge, of the high priest; and when he saw Peter getting warm, he approached him and looked at him, and said: You were also with Jesus the Nazarene. Are you not also of this man's disciples? But he denied before all, saying: I am not, nor do I know him, nor do I know what you say. And he went out to the entrance; and the rooster crowed. Going out to the door, the maid sitting on the fire saw him again, and he looked at him and said to those who were there: This also was with Jesus the Nazarene. This is theirs And they said to him: Are you not of his disciples? He denied, and said: I'm not. So he denied again. And a little later, about an hour, the servants and the constables who had lit a fire were standing; because it was cold, and they got warm; and also with them was Peter standing, warming himself. And another of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him to whom Peter had cut off his ear, affirmed, saying, Did not I see you in the garden with him? Truly he was also with him, because he is a Galilean. And those who were there approaching said to Peter: Truly you are also of them; because you are a Galilean, and your way of speaking is similar to theirs. And your way of speaking discovers you. Then he denied it and began to curse, and to swear, saying: I do not know him. I do not know this man you are talking about. I do not know such a man. And immediately, while he was still speaking, he crowed the rooster for the second time. Then, turned the Lord, looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the words of Jesus, who had said to him: Before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times. And going out, thinking about this, he wept bitterly. JESUS BEFORE THE COUNCILWhen it was day, when the morning was come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people and the scribes brought him to the council and entered into counsel against Jesus, to put him to death And the chief priests and the elders and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus, to deliver him up to death, and they did not find him, though many false witnesses came against him, but their testimonies did not agree. But at last two false witnesses stood up and gave false testimony to him and said, "We have heard him say, I will tear down this temple made by hand, and in three days I will build another without a hand, and I can tear down the temple of God, and in three days to rebuild it. But even then they did not agree on the testimony. And the high priest stood up and said to him, "Do you answer nothing?" What do these witness against you? But Jesus was silent and nothing answered. Then the high priest asked again and said: I adjure you by the living God, to tell us if you are the Christ, the Blessed Son of God. And he said to them: If I tell you, you will not believe; and also if I ask you, you will not answer me, nor will you let me go. But you have said it; I am and you say that I am. Moreover I say to you, that from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of God's power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, "He has blasphemed!" What more need do we have of witnesses? Here it is, right now you have heard his blasphemy. What do you think? And they all condemned him saying: What more testimony do we need? Because we ourselves have heard it from his mouth. He is guilty of death! "Then some of them spat on his face, and punched him, and others blindfolded him, slapped his face, saying: Prophesy us, Christ, who is the one who hit you? And the sheriffs who guarded Jesus mocked him and slapped him. And they said many other things injuring him.JESUS BEFORE PILATE FOR THE FIRST TIMEThen they took Jesus bound from the house of Caiaphas to the praetorium and delivered him to Pilate. It was morning, and they did not enter the praetorium so as not to contaminate themselves, so that they could eat the Passover. So Pilate went out to them and said to them, What accusation do you bring against this man? They answered and said to him: If this one was not an evildoer, we would not have given it to you. And they began to accuse him, saying: We have found him to pervert the nation, and to forbid paying tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is the Christ, a king. And the main priests accused him a lot. And when he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he answered nothing. Then Pilate said to him, "Do not you hear how many things they testify against you?" Again Pilate asked him, saying, "Do you answer anything? Look at how many things they accuse you. Even Jesus did not even answer a word; so Pilate marveled greatly. Jesus, then, was standing before the governor; and he asked him, saying: Are you the King of the Jews? And Jesus said to him: You say it. And Pilate said to the chief priests and to the people, "I find no crime in this man." But they were stubborn, saying, He upsets the people, teaching throughout Judea, beginning from Galilee to here. Then Pilate said to them, Take him and judge him according to your law. And the Jews said to him: We are not allowed to kill anyone; (so that the word that Jesus had said would be fulfilled, hinting at what death he was going to die). Then Pilate entered the praetorium again, and called Jesus and said to him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" He replied: Do you say this for yourself, or have others told you about me? Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Your nation, and the chief priests, have given you to me. What have you done? Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; But my kingdom is not from here. Pilate then said to him: Then, are you king? Jesus answered: You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came to the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice. Pilate said to him: What is the truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, I find no crime in him. Then Pilate, hearing, Galilee, asked if the man was a Galilean. And when he learned that it belonged to Herod, he referred him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem in those days.JESUS BEFORE HERODHeroes, seeing Jesus, was very happy because he had wanted to see him for a long time; because I had heard many things about him, and I expected to see him make some sign. And he asked many questions, but he said nothing. And there were the chief priests and the scribes accusing him with great vehemence. Then Herod with his soldiers despised him and mocked him, dressing him in a splendid garment; and he sent Pilate back to him. And Pilate and Herod became friends that day; for before they were at enmity with each other. JESUS BEFORE PILATE FOR THE SECOND TIME Then Pilate, summoning the chief priests, the rulers, and the people, said to them, You have presented me to him as a man who disturbs the people; but having interrogated him before you, I have not found in this man any crime of those of whom you accuse him. And not even Herod, because I referred you to him; and behold, nothing worthy of death has this man done. I will let him go, then, after punishing him. Now, on the day of the feast, the governor used to let the people loose a prisoner, one at each party. And they had then a famous prisoner named Barabbas, imprisoned with his mutiny comrades who had committed murder in a revolt. He had been thrown into prison for sedition in the city, and for a homicide. JESUS AND BARRABASY, the crowd coming, began asking him to do as he had always done to them. So they gathered together, Pilate said to them: You have the habit of releasing one to me at Easter. Who do you want me to release: Barabbas, or Jesus, called the Christ? Do you want, then, to release the King of the Jews? Then all shouted again, saying: Not this one, but Barabbas. And Barabbas was a thief. And while he, Pilate, sitting in the judgment seat, his wife commanded him to say: Have nothing to do with that righteous man; because today I suffered a lot in my dreams because of him. But the chief priests and the elders persuaded and encouraged him to give Barabbas, and Jesus was killed. But the governor said to them, Which one do you want me to release? And they said: To Barabbas. Pilate answering, he said to them again: What, then, would you like me to do of what you call King of the Jews? And they shouted again: Crucify him! Pilate said to them: Well what evil has he done? But they shouted even more: Crucify him! Let him be crucified! And the Jews answered him: We have a law, and according to our law he must die, because he made himself Son of God. When Pilate heard this, he was more afraid. And he entered the praetorium again, and said to Jesus: Where are you from? But Jesus did not answer him. Then Pilate said to him: You do not speak to me? Do not you know that I have the authority to crucify you, and that I have the authority to let you go? Jesus answered: You would have no authority against me, if it were not given to you from above; Therefore, the one who has given you to me, has the greatest sin. Since then Pilate tried to let him go; but the Jews cried out, saying: If you let this one go, you are not a friend of Cesar; everyone who becomes king, Cesar opposes. Then Pilate, hearing this, brought Jesus out, and sat down in the judgment seat at the place called the Pavement, and in Hebrew Gabata. It was the preparation of the Passover, and as the sixth hour. Then he said to the Jews: Behold your King! But they shouted: Out, out, crucify him! Pilate said to them: I will crucify your King? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar. Pilate spoke again, wanting to release Jesus; and Pilate said to them, What, then, will I do about Jesus, called the Christ? The whole crowd cried out to one, saying: Be crucified! Get out with this, and let us go to Barabbas! JESUS IS WRONG He told them for the third time: Well, what evil has this done? No crime worthy of death I have found in him; I will punish him, then, and I will let him go. So, Pilate took Jesus and ordered him to be flogged. Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus to the praetorium, and called the whole company. And stripping him, they put a purple robe over him, and the soldiers wove a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand; and kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spat at him, took the reed, and beat him on the head, and bowed down on their knees. Then Pilate went out again and said to them, "Look, I am bringing you outside, so that you may understand that no crime is found in him. And Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, Behold the man! When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out loudly, asking him to be crucified and saying: Crucify him! Crucify him! And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. When Pilate saw that he was not advancing, but was making more noise, he took water and washed his hands before the people, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this just man; there you go Take him therefore, and crucify him; because I do not find crime in him. And all the people answered and said, His blood be on us, and on our sons. And Pilate, wanting to satisfy the people, sentenced what they asked for: he released Barabbas to them who had been thrown into prison for sedition and murder, whom they had asked for; and then he delivered Jesus to their will to be crucified. So they took Jesus, and took him away. DEATH OF JUDASY Judas, the one who had delivered him, seeing that he was condemned, returned repentant the thirty pieces of silver (the wages of his iniquity) to the chief priests and elders, saying: I have sinned by giving innocent blood. But they said: What does it matter to us? There you! And throwing the pieces of silver into the temple, he went out, and went and hanged himself and fell headlong, burst in half, and all his bowels gushed out. Then the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said: It is not It is lawful to throw them into the treasury of the offerings, because it is the price of blood. And after consulting, they bought with them the potter's field, for burial of foreigners. And it was notorious to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, in such a way that that field is called in its own language, Acéldama, which means, Field of blood. Thus it was fulfilled what was said by the prophet Jeremiah, when he said: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the beloved, according to the price set by the sons of Israel; and they gave them to the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me. THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS After having mocked him, they took off his cloak, put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him. And he, carrying his cross, went out to the place called the Skull, and in Hebrew, Golgotha. When they left, they forced one who passed, Simon of Cyrene, father of Alexander and Rufus, who came from the country, to take him the cross. And they put the cross on her to carry her after Jesus. And a great multitude of the people followed him, and women who cried and lamented for him. But Jesus, turning to them, said to them: Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but cry for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days will come in which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that did not conceive, and the breasts that did not raise. Then they will begin to say to the mountains: Fall on us; and the hills: Cover us. Because if in the green tree they do these things, in the dry, what will not be done? They also took with him two others, who were malefactors, to be killed. And when they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left and Jesus in the middle. And the Scripture was fulfilled which says: And he was numbered with the wicked. It was the third hour when they crucified him. Pilate also wrote the title of his cause, which he placed on his head on the cross, which said: THIS IS JESUS NAZARENE, KING OF THE JEWS. And many of the Jews read this title; because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the title was written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do not write: King of the Jews; but, that he said: I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written. When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took their clothes, and made four parts, one for each soldier. They also took his tunic, which was seamless, from a single fabric up and down. Then they said among themselves, Let us not divide it, but cast lots for it, to see whose it will be. This was so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, which says: "They divided my clothes among them, and they cast lots for my clothing." And so did the soldiers. And they were keeping him there. And those who passed by were insulting him, shaking their heads, and saying, "You who tear down the temple, and build it in three days, save yourself; If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross. And the town was watching. The soldiers also mocked him, approaching and presenting him with vinegar. In this way also the chief priests, mocking him with the scribes and Pharisees and elders, mocked him, and said: He saved others, he can not save himself. If it is the Christ, the King of Israel, the chosen of God, now descend from the cross, so that we may see and believe in him. I trust in God; free him now if he loves you; because he said: I am Son of God. The thieves who were crucified with him also insulted him. And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing. THE REPENTANT MALACHOR AND one of the criminals who were hanged insulted him, saying: If you are the Christ, save yourself and us. Responding to the other, he rebuked him, saying: Do you not even fear God, being in the same condemnation? We, indeed, suffer, because we received what our deeds deserved; but this one did no evil. And he said to Jesus: Remember me when you come into your kingdom. Then Jesus said to him: Truly I say to you that today you will be with me in paradise. THE FINAL INSTANTS They were next to the cross of Jesus his mother, and the sister of his mother, Mary, wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved, who was present, he said to his mother: Woman, behold your son. Then he said to the disciple: Behold your mother. And from that hour the disciple received her in his house. And from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. About the ninth hour (Mark "at the ninth hour"), Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, cieno sabactani? This is: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Some of those who were there said, on hearing it: Elijah calls this one. But the others said: Let's see if Elijah comes to deliver him. And one ran and soaked a sponge in vinegar mixed with gall (wine mixed with myrrh), and putting it on a reed, he gave it to drink, saying: Let's see, let's see if Elijah comes to take him down. But after tasting it, he did not want to drink it. After this, Jesus knowing that everything was finished, he said, so that the Scripture could be fulfilled: I am thirsty. And there was a vessel full of vinegar; then they soaked a sponge in vinegar, and putting it in a hyssop, they put it to his mouth. When Jesus had taken the vinegar, He said: It is finished. Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said: Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. And having said this and bowing his head, he gave up the spirit and expired. The sun then darkened. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two in half and from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks split; and the sepulchers were opened, and many bodies of saints who had slept, arose; and coming out of the tombs, after his resurrection, they came to the holy city, and appeared to many. The centurion who was before him, and those who were with him keeping Jesus, watched the earthquake, and the things that they had been made, they were very afraid, and they said: Truly this was the Son of God. Truly this man was righteous. And all the multitude of those who were present in this spectacle, seeing what had happened, they were beating their chests. THE SEPULTURE OF JESUS Then the Jews, because it was the preparation of the Passover, so that the bodies did not remain in the cross on the Sabbath day (for that Sabbath day was of great solemnity), they prayed to Pilate that their legs should be broken, and removed from there. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and also of the one who had been crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, as they saw him already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers opened his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. And he who saw it bears witness, and his testimony is true; and he knows he is telling the truth, so that you too can believe. Because these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: His bone will not be broken. And also another Scripture says: They will look at the one they pierced. But all his acquaintances and the women who had followed him from Galilee serving him, and many others who had gone up with him to Jerusalem, were there watching from afar. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph (mother also of Jesus), the mother of the sons of Zebedee and Salome. When evening came, because it was preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath , Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea, city of Judea. This was a good and just man who also expected the kingdom of God, and although a extraordinario member of the council, had not consented to the agreement or the deeds of them, because he was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly out of fear of the Jews, he came and boldly entered Pilate begging to be allowed to take Jesus' body. Pilate was surprised that he had already died; and asking the centurion to come, he asked him if he was already dead. And informed by the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph, who bought a sheet, and removing it from the cross, wrapped it in the clean sheet. Also Nicodemus, the one who had visited Jesus by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about one hundred pounds. They took the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in linen cloths with aromatic spices, as it is custom to bury among the Jews. And in the place where he had been crucified, there was a garden that was nearby. And in the garden a new sepulcher that was dug in a rock, in which none had yet been laid. and put it in the molesto. And the women who had come with him from Galilee followed also, and they saw the sepulcher and how his body was put. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph (and Jesus) were sitting there in front of the tomb, looking where they put it. And Joseph of Arimathea rolled a great stone at the entrance of the sepulcher, and departed. It was a day of preparation, and it was to begin the Sabbath. And around (the women), they prepared aromatic spices and ointments; and they rested the sabbath, according to the commandment. THE GUARD IN THE SEPULTURE The next day, which is after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate, saying: Lord, we remember that the deceiver said, living still : After three days I will be resurrected. Command, then, that the tomb be secured until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him, and say to the people, He rose from the dead. And it will be worse than the first last error. And Pilate said to them, There you have a guard; id, make sure as you know. Then they went and secured the tomb, sealing the stone and setting the guard. And there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, coming down from heaven and coming, stirred the stone, and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his dress white as snow. And in fear of him the keepers trembled and remained as dead. THE RESURRECTION When the Sabbath happened, the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene left very early in the morning, still dark, for the sepulcher. Going on, (she saw that the tomb was empty and) then ran, and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, who were sad and crying, and said to them: They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and We do not know where they have placed him. Peter and the other disciple rose up and went to the tomb. They both ran together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter, and arrived first at the tomb. And going down to look, he saw the canvases there, but he did not enter. Llegó luego Simón Pedro tras él, y entró en el sepulcro, y vio los lienzos puestos allí, y el sudario, que había estado sobre la habitante de Jesús, no puesto con los lienzos, sino majo en un motivo a distancia. Y cuando miró internamente, vio los lienzos solos. Entonces entró además el otro discípulo, que había venido primero al sepulcro; y vio, y creyó, y se fue a casa maravillándose de lo que había sucedido. Porque aún no habían entendido la Escritura, que era necesario que él resucitase de los muertos. Y volvieron los discípulos a los suyos.Y María la madre de Jacobo, y Salomé, compraron especias aromáticas para ir a ungirle, y al amanecer vinieron a ver el sepulcro, trayendo las especies aromáticas que habían preparado, y algunas otras mujeres con ellas. Llegaron al sepulcro ya saledizo el sol. Pero decían entre sí: ¿Quién nos removerá la piedra de la entrada del sepulcro? Pero cuando miraron, vieron removida la piedra, que era muy vasto.Aconteció que estando ellas perplejas por esto, he aquí se pararon conexo a ellas dos varones con ornamentos resplandecientes; y como tuvieron temor, y bajaron el rostro a tierra, les dijeron: ¿Por qué buscáis entre los muertos al que vive? No está aquí, sino que ha resucitado. Acordaos de lo que os habló, cuando aún estaba en Galilea, diciendo: Es necesario que el Hijo del Hombre sea entregado en manos de hombres pecadores, y que sea crucificado, y resucite al tercer día. E id pronto y decid a sus discípulos y a Pedro que ha resucitado de los muertos, y he aquí va delante de vosotros a Galilea; allí le veréis como os dijo.Y cuando entraron en el sepulcro, no hallaron el cuerpo del Señor Jesús, pero vieron a un espíritu celeste (con apariencia de un hombre) adolescente sentado al flanco derecho, cubierto de una larga ropa blanca; y se espantaron. Mas él les dijo:No os asustéis; porque yo sé que buscáis a Jesús penitente, el que fue crucificado; ha resucitado, no está aquí como dijo; Venid, ved el motivo donde fue puesto el Señor. JESUS SE APARECE A MARIA MAGDALENAPero María (que volvió al sepulcro) estaba fuera llorando conexo al sepulcro; y mientras lloraba, se inclinó para mirar internamente del sepulcro, y vio a dos ángeles con ornamentos blancas, que estaban sentados el uno a la colchoncillo, y el otro a los pies, donde el cuerpo de Jesús había sido puesto. Y le dijeron: Mujer, ¿por qué lloras? Les dijo: Porque se han llevado a mi Señor, y no sé dónde le han puesto. Cuando había dicho esto, se volvió, y vio a Jesús que estaba allí; mas no sabía que era Jesús. Jesús le dijo: Mujer, ¿por qué lloras? ¿A quién buscas? Ella, pensando que era el hortelano, le dijo: Señor, si tú lo has llevado, dime dónde lo has puesto, y yo lo llevaré. Jesús le dijo: ¡María! Volviéndose ella, le dijo: ¡Raboni! (que quiere asegurar, Maestro). Jesús le dijo: No me toques, porque aún no he subido a mi Padre; mas ve a mis hermanos, y diles: Subo a mi Padre y a vuestro Padre, a mi Dios y a vuestro Dios.Entonces Jesús dijo: No temáis; id, dad las nuevas a mis hermanos, para que vayan a Galilea, y allí me verán.Fue entonces María Magdalena, de quien había recostado siete demonios, para dar a los discípulos las nuevas de que había manido al Señor, y que él le había dicho estas cosas. Y eran María Magdalena, y Juana, y María madre de Jacobo, y las demás con ellas, quienes dijeron éstas cosas a los apóstoles.JESUS SE APARECE A LAS OTRAS MUJERESEntonces ellas, saliendo del sepulcro con temor y gran goce, fueron corriendo a dar las nuevas a sus discípulos. Y mientras iban a dar las nuevas a los discípulos, he aquí, Jesús les salió al combate, diciendo: ¡Salve! Y ellas, acercándose, abrazaron sus pies, y le adoraron. Y ellas se fueron huyendo del sepulcro, porque les había tomado temblor y espanto; ni decían ausencia a nadie, porque tenían miedo. Entonces ellas se acordaron de sus palabras, y volviendo del sepulcro, dieron nuevas de todas estas cosas a los merienda, y a todos los demás. Ellos, cuando oyeron que vivía, y que había sido manido por ella, no lo creyeron. Mas a ellos les parecían paranoia las palabras de ellas, y no las creían.LOS SACERDOTES QUIEREN OCULTAR LA RESURRECCIONMientras ellas iban, he aquí unos de la protección fueron a la ciudad, y dieron aviso a los principales sacerdotes de todas las cosas que habían acontecido. Y reunidos con los ancianos, y habido consejo, dieron mucho moneda a los soldados, diciendo: Decid vosotros: Sus discípulos vinieron de confusión, y lo hurtaron, estando nosotros dormidos. Y si esto lo oyere el representante, nosotros le persuadiremos, y os pondremos a incólume. Y ellos, tomando el moneda, hicieron como se les había instruido. Este dicho se ha divulgado entre los judíos hasta el día de hoy.JESUS SE APARECE A DOS DISCIPULOS CAMINO DE EMAUSPero luego apareció en otra forma a dos de ellos que iban de camino, yendo al campo: He aquí, dos de ellos iban el mismo día a una pueblo señal Emaús, que estaba a sesenta estadios de Jerusalén. E iban hablando entre sí de todas aquellas cosas que habían acontecido. Sucedió que mientras hablaban y discutían entre sí, Jesús mismo se acercó, y caminaba con ellos. Mas los fanales de ellos estaban velados, para que no le conociesen. Y les dijo:¿Qué pláticas son estas que tenéis entre vosotros mientras camináis, y por qué estáis tristes? Respondiendo uno de ellos, que se llamaba Cleofas, le dijo:¿Eres tú el único forastero en Jerusalén que no has sabido las cosas que en ella han acontecido en estos días? Entonces él les dijo: ¿Qué cosas? Y ellos le dijeron: De Jesús penitente, que fue hombre profeta, poderoso en obra y en palabra delante de Dios y de todo el pueblo; y cómo le entregaron los principales sacerdotes y nuestros gobernantes a sentencia de asesinato, y le crucificaron. Pero nosotros esperábamos que él era el que había de liberar a Israel; y ahora, encima de todo esto, hoy es ya el tercer día que esto ha acontecido. Aunque además nos han patidifuso unas mujeres de entre nosotros, las que antaño del día fueron al sepulcro; y como no hallaron su cuerpo, vinieron diciendo que además habían manido visión de ángeles, quienes dijeron que él vive. Y fueron algunos de los nuestros al sepulcro, y hallaron así como las mujeres habían dicho, pero a él no le vieron.Entonces él les dijo: ¡Oh insensatos, y tardos de corazón para creer todo lo que los profetas han dicho! ¿No era necesario que el Cristo padeciera estas cosas, y que entrara en su salvación? Y comenzando desde Moisés, y siguiendo por todos los profetas, les declaraba en todas las Escrituras lo que de él decían.Llegaron a la pueblo donde iban, y él hizo como que iba más allí. Mas ellos le obligaron a quedarse, diciendo: Quédate con nosotros, porque se hace tarde, y el día ya ha declinado. Entró, pues, a quedarse con ellos. Y aconteció que estando sentado con ellos a la mesa, tomó el pan y lo bendijo, lo partió, y les dio. Entonces les fueron abiertos los fanales, y le reconocieron; mas él se desapareció de su tino. Y se decían el uno al otro: ¿No ardía nuestro corazón en nosotros, mientras nos hablaba en el camino, y cuando nos abría las Escrituras? Y levantándose en la misma hora, volvieron a Jerusalén, y hallaron a los merienda reunidos, y a los que estaban con ellos, que decían: Ha resucitado el Señor verdaderamente, y ha aparecido a Simón. Entonces ellos contaban las cosas que les habían acontecido en el camino, y cómo le habían agradecido al partir el pan. Pero ni aun a ellos creyeron.JESUS APARECE A DIEZ DISCIPULOS EN EL APOSENTO ALTOMientras ellos aún hablaban de estas cosas, en la confusión de aquel mismo día, el primero de la semana. Estando las puertas cerradas en el motivo donde los discípulos estaban reunidos por miedo de los judíos, y estando ellos sentados a la mesa, morapio Jesús y puesto en medio de ellos, les dijo: Paz a vosotros. Entonces, espantados y atemorizados, pensaban que veían espíritu. Pero él les dijo: ¿Por qué estáis turbados, y vienen a vuestro corazón estos pensamientos? Y cuando les hubo dicho esto, les mostró las manos y el costado: Mirad mis manos y mis pies, que yo mismo soy; palpad, y ved; porque un espíritu no tiene carne ni huesos, como veis que yo tengo. Y diciendo esto, les mostró las manos y los pies. Y como todavía ellos, de goce, no lo creían, y estaban maravillados, les dijo: ¿Tenéis aquí poco de manducar? Entonces le dieron parte de un pez asado, y un panal de miel. Y él lo tomó, y comió delante de ellos. Y los discípulos se regocijaron viendo al Señor. Y cuando le vieron, le adoraron; pero algunos dudaban.INSTRUCCIONES APOSTOLICASY les dijo: Estas son las palabras que os hablé, estando aún con vosotros: que era necesario que se cumpliese todo lo que está escrito de mí en la ley de Moisés, en los profetas y en los salmos. Entonces les abrió el entendimiento, para que comprendiesen las Escrituras; y les dijo: Así está escrito, y así fue necesario que el Cristo padeciese, y resucitase de los muertos al tercer día; y que se predicase en su nombre el retractación y el perdón de pecados en todas las naciones, comenzando desde Jerusalén. Y vosotros sois testigos de estas cosas. He aquí, yo enviaré la promesa de mi Padre sobre vosotros; pero quedaos vosotros en la ciudad de Jerusalén, hasta que seáis investidos de poder desde lo parada. Entonces Jesús les dijo otra vez: Paz a vosotros. Como me envió el Padre, así además yo os remisión. Y habiendo dicho esto, sopló, y les dijo: Recibid el Espíritu Santo. A quienes remitiereis los pecados, les son remitidos; y a quienes se los retuviereis, les son retenidos. Y Jesús se acercó y les habló diciendo: Toda potestad me es dada en el Gloria y en la tierra. Y les reprochó su incredulidad y dureza de corazón, porque no habían creído a los que le habían manido resucitado. Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura, y haced discípulos a todas las naciones, bautizándolos en el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo; enseñándoles que guarden todas las cosas que os he mandado. El que creyere y fuere aguado, será incólume; mas el que no creyere, será condenado. Y estas señales seguirán a los que creen: En mi nombre echarán fuera demonios; hablarán nuevas lenguas; tomarán en las manos serpientes, y si bebieren cosa mortífera, no les hará daño; sobre los enfermos pondrán sus manos, y sanarán. He aquí yo estoy con vosotros todos los días, hasta el fin del mundo. Amén.SEGUNDA APARICION DE JESUS EN EL APOSENTO ALTO ESTANDO TOMASPero Tomás, uno de los doce, llamado Dídimo, no estaba con ellos cuando Jesús morapio. Le dijeron, pues, los otros discípulos: Al Señor hemos manido. El les dijo: Si no viere en sus manos la señal de los clavos, y metiere mi dedo en el motivo de los clavos, y metiere mi mano en su costado, no creeré. Ocho días luego, estaban otra vez sus discípulos internamente, y con ellos Tomás. Llegó Jesús, estando las puertas cerradas, y se puso en medio y les dijo: Paz a vosotros. Luego dijo a Tomás: Pon aquí tu dedo, y mira mis manos; y acerca tu mano, y métela en mi costado; y no seas incrédulo, sino creyente. Entonces Tomás respondió y le dijo: ¡Señor mío, y Dios mío! Jesús le dijo: Porque me has manido, Tomás, creíste; bienaventurados los que no vieron, y creyeron.JESUS SE APARECE A ONCE DISCIPULOS EN GALILEA: LA PESCA MILAGROSAY los merienda discípulos se fueron a Galilea, al monte donde Jesús les había arreglado. Después de esto, Jesús se manifestó otra vez a sus discípulos conexo al mar de Tiberias; y se manifestó de esta guisa: Estaban juntos Simón Pedro, Tomás llamado el Dídimo, Natanael el de Caná de Galilea, los hijos de Zebedeo, y otros dos de sus discípulos. Simón Pedro les dijo: Voy a pescar. Ellos le dijeron: Vamos nosotros además contigo. Fueron, y entraron en una barca; y aquella confusión no pescaron ausencia.Cuando ya iba amaneciendo, se presentó Jesús en la playa; mas los discípulos no sabían que era Jesús. Y les dijo: Hijitos, ¿tenéis poco de manducar? Le respondieron: No. El les dijo: Echad la red a la derecha de la barca, y hallaréis. Entonces la echaron, y ya no la podían sacar, por la gran cantidad de peces. Entonces aquel discípulo a quien Jesús amaba dijo a Pedro: ¡Es el Señor! Simón Pedro, cuando oyó que era el Señor, se ciñó la ropa (porque se había despojado de ella), y se echó al mar.Y los otros discípulos vinieron con la barca, arrastrando la red de peces, pues no distaban de tierra sino como doscientos codos. Al descender a tierra, vieron brasas puestas, y un pez encima de ellas, y pan. Jesús les dijo: Traed de los peces que acabáis de pescar. Subió Simón Pedro, y sacó la red a tierra, llena de grandes peces, ciento cincuenta y tres; y aun siendo tantos, la red no se rompió. Les dijo Jesús: Venid, comed. Y ningún de los discípulos se atrevía a preguntarle: ¿Tú, quién eres? sabiendo que era el Señor. Vino, pues, Jesús, y tomó el pan y les dio, y asimismo del pescado. Esta era ya la tercera vez que Jesús se manifestaba a sus discípulos, luego de activo resucitado de los muertos.JESUS RESTITUYE A PEDRO Cuando hubieron comido, Jesús dijo a Simón Pedro: Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me amas más que éstos? Le respondió: Sí, Señor; tú sabes que te amo. El le dijo: Apacienta mis corderos. Volvió a decirle la segunda vez: Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me amas? Pedro le respondió: Sí, Señor; tú sabes que te amo. Le dijo: Pastorea mis ovejas. Le dijo la tercera vez: Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me amas? Pedro se entristeció de que le dijese la tercera vez: ¿Me amas? y le respondió: Señor, tú lo sabes todo; tú sabes que te amo. Jesús le dijo: Apacienta mis ovejas. De cierto, de cierto te digo: Cuando eras más adolescente, te ceñías, e ibas a donde querías; mas cuando ya seas arcaico, extenderás tus manos, y te ceñirá otro, y te llevará a donde no quieras. (Esto dijo, dando a entender con qué asesinato había de alabar a Dios). Y dicho esto, añadió: Sígueme.Volviéndose Pedro, vio que les seguía el discípulo a quien amaba Jesús, el mismo que en la cena se había recostado al flanco de él, y le había dicho: Señor, ¿quién es el que te ha de entregar? Cuando Pedro le vio, dijo a Jesús: Señor, ¿y qué de éste? Jesús le dijo: Si quiero que él quede hasta que yo venga, ¿qué a ti? Sígueme tú. Este dicho se extendió entonces entre los hermanos, que aquel discípulo no moriría. Pero Jesús no le dijo que no moriría, sino: Si quiero que él quede hasta que yo venga, ¿qué a ti? Este es el discípulo que da prueba de estas cosas, y escribió estas cosas; y sabemos que su prueba es seguro.ULTIMAS APARICIONES DE JESUSDespués apareció a más de quinientos hermanos a la vez, de los cuales muchos viven aún, y otros ya duermen. Después apareció a Jacobo; luego a todos los apóstoles; a quienes además, luego de activo padecido, se presentó vivo con muchas pruebas indubitables, apareciéndoseles durante cuarenta días y hablándoles acerca del reino de Dios.Y estando juntos, les mandó que no se fueran de Jerusalén, sino que esperasen la promesa del Padre, la cual, les dijo, oísteis de mi. Porque Juan ciertamente bautizó con agua, mas vosotros seréis bautizados con el Espíritu Santo internamente de no muchos días. Entonces los que se habían reunido le preguntaron, diciendo: Señor, ¿restaurarás el reino a Israel en este tiempo? Y les dijo: No os toca a vosotros asimilar los tiempos o las sazones, que el Padre puso en su sola potestad; pero recibiréis poder, cuando haya venido sobre vosotros el Espíritu Santo, y me seréis testigos en Jerusalén, en toda Judea, en Samaria, y hasta lo final de la tierra.LA ASCENSION DE JESUS A LOS CIELOSY los sacó fuera hasta Betania. Entonces los que se habían reunido le preguntaron, diciendo: Señor, ¿restaurarás el reino a Israel en este tiempo? Y les dijo: No os toca a vosotros asimilar los tiempos o las sazones, que el Padre puso en su sola potestad; pero recibiréis poder, cuando haya venido sobre vosotros el Espíritu Santo, y me seréis testigos en Jerusalén, en toda Judea, en Samaria, y hasta lo final de la tierra. Y habiendo dicho estas cosas, alzando sus manos, los bendijo. Y aconteció que bendiciéndolos, se separó de ellos, y viéndolo ello, y fue rebelde, y le recibió una abundancia que le ocultó de sus fanales, y fue llevado en lo alto al Gloria. Y el Señor, luego que les habló, fue recibido en lo alto en el Gloria, y se sentó a la diestra de Dios.Y estando ellos con los fanales puestos en el Gloria, entre tanto que él se iba, he aquí se pusieron conexo a ellos dos varones con ornamentos blancas, los cuales además les dijeron: Varones galileos, ¿por qué estáis mirando al Gloria? Este mismo Jesús que ha sido tomado de vosotros al Gloria, así vendrá como le habéis manido ir al Gloria.Ellos, luego de haberle adorado, volvieron a Jerusalén con gran goce; desde el monte que se vehemencia del Olivar, el cual está cerca de Jerusalén, camino de un día de reposo. Y entrados, subieron al aposento parada, donde moraban Pedro y Jacobo, Juan, Andrés, Felipe, Tomás, Bartolomé, Mateo, Jacobo hijo de Alfeo, Simón el Zelote y Judas, hermano de Jacobo. Todos éstos perseveraban unánimes en oración y ruego, con las mujeres, y con María la madre de Jesús, y con sus hermanos. Y estaban siempre en el templo, alabando y bendiciendo a Dios. Amén.Y ellos, saliendo, predicaron en todas partes, ayudándoles el Señor y confirmando la palabra con las señales que la seguían. Amén.Hizo encima Jesús muchas otras señales en presencia de sus discípulos, las cuales no están escritas en este obra. Pero éstas se han escrito para que creáis que Jesús es el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios, y para que creyendo, tengáis vida en su nombre. Y hay además otras muchas cosas que hizo Jesús, las cuales si se escribieran una por una, pienso que ni aun en el mundo cabrían los libros que se habrían de escribir. Amén.Compilación bajo el criterio de Pablo Blanco (1994)Fuente: ForoCristiano.com.
