28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn towards the
first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other
Mary to see the sepulcher.
28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of
the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the
stone from the door, and sat upon it.
28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white
28:4 And for fear of him the keepers trembled and became as dead
28:5 And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear ye not:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified.
28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the
place where the Lord lay.
28:7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples, that he is risen
from the dead, and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee;
there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
28:8 And they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and
great joy; and ran to bring word to his disciples.
28:9 And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus
met them, saying, All hail. And they came, and held him by the
feet, and worshiped him.
28:10 Then said Jesus to them, Be not afraid: go tell my
brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see
28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came
into the city, and showed to the chief priests all the things
that had been done.
28:12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had
taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
28:13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him
[away] while we slept.
28:14 And if this shall come to the governor's ears, we will
persuade him, and secure you.
28:15 So they took the money, and did as they were instructed:
and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this
28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to a
mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
28:17 And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some
28:18 And Jesus came, and spoke to them, saying, All power is
given to me in heaven and upon earth.
28:19 Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatever I have
commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end
of the world. Amen.
