Jesus Rises from the Dead
1The day after the Sabbath day, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought some sweet-smelling spices to put on Jesus’ body. 2Very early on that day, the first day of the week, soon after sunrise, the women were on their way to the tomb. 3They said to each other, “Who will roll away for us the stone that covers the entrance of the tomb?”
4Then the women looked and saw that the stone had already been rolled away, even though it was very large. 5The women entered the tomb and saw a young man wearing a white robe and sitting on the right side, and they were afraid.
6But the man said, “Don’t be afraid. You are looking for Jesus from Nazareth, who has been crucified. He has risen from the dead; he is not here. Look, here is the place they laid him. 7Now go and tell his followers and Peter, ‘Jesus is going into Galilee ahead of you, and you will see him there as he told you before.’ ”
8The women were confused and shaking with fear, so they left the tomb and ran away. They did not tell anyone about what happened, because they were afraid.

Some Followers See Jesus
[9After Jesus rose from the dead early on the first day of the week, he showed himself first to Mary Magdalene. One time in the past, he had forced seven demons out of her. 10After Mary saw Jesus, she went and told his followers, who were very sad and were crying. 11But Mary told them that Jesus was alive. She said that she had seen him, but the followers did not believe her.
12Later, Jesus showed himself to two of his followers while they were walking in the country, but he did not look the same as before. 13These followers went back to the others and told them what had happened, but again, the followers did not believe them.
Jesus Talks to the Apostles
14Later Jesus showed himself to the eleven apostles while they were eating, and he criticized them because they had no faith. They were stubborn and refused to believe those who had seen him after he had risen from the dead.
15Jesus said to his followers, “Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone. 16Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved, but anyone who does not believe will be punished. 17And those who believe will be able to do these things as proof: They will use my name to force out demons. They will speak in new languages. 18They will pick up snakes and drink poison without being hurt. They will touch the sick, and the sick will be healed.”
19After the Lord Jesus said these things to his followers, he was carried up into heaven, and he sat at the right side of God. 20The followers went everywhere in the world and told the Good News to people, and the Lord helped them. The Lord proved that the Good News they told was true by giving them power to work miracles.]

1 And when the Sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought aromatic spices, so that when they arrived they could anoint Jesus.
2 And very early in the morning, on the first of the Sabbaths, they went to the tomb, the sun having now risen.
3 And they said to one another, "Who will roll back the stone for us, away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 And looking, they saw that the stone was rolled back. For certainly it was very large.
5 And upon entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, covered with a white robe, and they were astonished.
6 And he said to them, "Do not become frightened. You are seeking Jesus of Nazareth, the Crucified One. He has risen. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him.
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you into Galilee. There you shall see him, just as he told you."
8 But they, going out, fled from the tomb. For trembling and fear had overwhelmed them. And they said nothing to anyone. For they were afraid.
9 But he, rising early on the first Sabbath, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.
10 She went and announced it to those who had been with him, while they were mourning and weeping.
11 And they, upon hearing that he was alive and that he had been seen by her, did not believe it.
12 But after these events, he was shown in another likeness to two of them walking, as they were going out to the countryside.
13 And they, returning, reported it to the others; neither did they believe them.
14 Finally, he appeared to the eleven, as they sat at table. And he rebuked them for their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen that he had risen again.
15 And he said to them: "Go forth to the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
16 Whoever will have believed and been baptized will be saved. Yet truly, whoever will not have believed will be condemned.
17 Now these signs will accompany those who believe. In my name, they shall cast out demons. They will speak in new languages.
18 They will take up serpents, and, if they drink anything deadly, it will not harm them. They shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they will be well."
19 And indeed, the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and he sits at the right hand of God.
20 Then they, setting out, preached everywhere, with the Lord cooperating and confirming the word by the accompanying signs.
