He Is Risen
1Now #Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–10; John 20:1–8after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene #Matt. 27:56, 61and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 2And behold, there was a great earthquake; for #Mark 16:5; Luke 24:4; John 20:12an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. 3#Dan. 7:9; 10:6; Mark 9:3; John 20:12; Acts 1:10His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like #Rev. 1:17dead men.
5But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6He is not here; for He is risen, #Hos. 6:2; Ps. 16:10; 49:15; Matt. 12:40; 16:21; 17:23; 20:19as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed #Matt. 26:32; 28:10, 16; Mark 16:7He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
8So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.
The Women Worship the Risen Lord
9And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, #Mark 16:9; John 20:14Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell #Ps. 22:22; John 20:17; Rom. 8:29; (Heb. 2:11)My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”
The Soldiers Are Bribed
11Now 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. 12When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13saying, “Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’ 14And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.” 15So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
The Great Commission
16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain #Matt. 26:32; 28:7, 10; Mark 14:28; 15:41; 16:7which Jesus had appointed for them. 17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some #John 20:24–29doubted.
18And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, #(Dan. 7:13, 14); Matt. 11:27; Luke 1:32; 10:22; John 3:35; Acts 2:36; Rom. 14:9; 1 Cor. 15:27; (Eph. 1:10, 21); Phil. 2:9, 10; (Heb. 1:2); 1 Pet. 3:22“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19#Mark 16:15Go therefore and #Is. 52:10; Luke 24:47; (Acts 2:38, 39); Rom. 10:18; Col. 1:23make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20#(Acts 2:42)teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am #(Acts 4:31; 18:10; 23:11)with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

1 Now on the morning of the Sabbath, when it began to grow light on the first Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulcher.
2 And behold, a great earthquake occurred. For an Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and as he approached, he rolled back the stone and sat down on it.
3 Now his appearance was like lightning, and his vestment was like snow.
4 Then, out of fear of him, the guards were terrified, and they became like dead men.
5 Then the Angel responded by saying to the women: "Do not be afraid. For I know that you are seeking Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here. For he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where the Lord was placed.
7 And then, go quickly, and tell his disciples that he has risen. And behold, he will precede you to Galilee. There you shall see him. Lo, I have told you beforehand."
8 And they went out of the tomb quickly, with fear and in great joy, running to announce it to his disciples.
9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Hail." But they drew near and took hold of his feet, and they adored him.
10 Then Jesus said to them: "Do not be afraid. Go, announce it to my brothers, so that they may go to Galilee. There they shall see me."
11 And when they had departed, behold, some of the guards went into the city, and they reported to the leaders of the priests all that had happened.
12 And gathering together with the elders, having taken counsel, they gave an abundant sum of money to the soldiers,
13 saying: "Say that his disciples arrived at night and stole him away, while we were sleeping.
14 And if the procurator hears about this, we will persuade him, and we will protect you."
15 Then, having accepted the money, they did as they were instructed. And this word has been spread among the Jews, even to this day.
16 Now the eleven disciples went on to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
17 And, seeing him, they worshipped him, but certain ones doubted.
18 And Jesus, drawing near, spoke to them, saying: "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.
19 Therefore, go forth and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I have ever commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, even to the consummation of the age."
