1 aNow after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, bMary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.
2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for aan angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away bthe stone and sat upon it.
3 And ahis appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, “1aDo not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
6 “He is not here, for He has risen, ajust as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
7 “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you ainto Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
8 And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.
9 And behold, Jesus met them 1and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.
10 Then Jesus * said to them, “1aDo not be afraid; go and take word to bMy brethren to leave cfor Galilee, and there they will see Me.”
11 Now while they were on their way, some of athe guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened.
12 And when they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
13 and said, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep.’
14 “And if this should come to athe governor’s ears, we will win him over and 1keep you out of trouble.”
15 And they took the money and did as they had been instructed; and this story was widely aspread among the Jews, and is bto this day.
16 But the eleven disciples proceeded ato Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.
17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but asome were doubtful.
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “aAll authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19 “1aGo therefore and bmake disciples of call the nations, dbaptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, aI am with you 1always, even to bthe end of the age.”
