In the end of the sabbath,
as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary
Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 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.
His countenance was
like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of
him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel
answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that
ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is
risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
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. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre
with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
And as they went to
tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.
And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then
said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that
they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. Now when they
were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and
shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
And when they were assembled
with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money
unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night,
and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor's
ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the
money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly
reported among the Jews until this day. Then the eleven disciples
went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed
And when they saw him,
they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake
unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in
earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
