1 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jacob, and
Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
2 And very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb at
3 And they said among themselves, Who will roll away the stone from the door of the
tomb for us?
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a white robe sitting on the
right side; and they were afraid.
6 But he said to them, Do not be afraid. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.
7 But go, tell His disciples, and Peter, that He is going before you into Galilee; there you
will see Him, as He said to you.
8 So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were
astonished. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
9 Now when He arose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary
Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.
10 She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
11 And when they heard that He lives and was seen by her, they did not believe.
12 After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into
13 And they went and reported it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their
unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him
after He had been raised.
15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is immersed will be saved; but he who does not believe will be
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out
demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt
them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well.
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was taken up into Heaven, and sat
down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and
confirming the Word through the signs following. Amen.
