1 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene
and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from
Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you
seek Jesus who was crucified.
6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord was
7 And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is 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 went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to report this
to His disciples.
9 And as they went to bring word to His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying,
Greetings! And they came and held Him by the feet and did homage to Him.
10 And Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.
11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and
reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.
12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a large
sum of money to the soldiers,
13 saying, Say, His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.
14 And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will persuade him and make you free
15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews to this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had
17 And when they saw Him, they did homage to Him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority is given to Me in Heaven
and on earth.
19 Go therefore and instruct all the nations, immersing them into the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.
