The Resurrection
Mk 16:1–8; Lk 24:1–12; Jn 20:1–10
1#Mt 27:56; 27:61At the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.
2And then 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 on it. 3#Mk 9:3; Ac 1:10His countenance was like lightning, and his garments white as snow. 4#Rev 1:17The soldiers shook for fear of him and became like dead men.
5#Heb 1:14The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid. For I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. 6#Mt 16:21; 27:63He is not here. For He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7#Mt 26:32; 28:10Then go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead, and indeed, He is going before you to Galilee. There you will see Him. Listen, I have told you.”
8#Ps 2:11So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. 9#Mt 14:33; 28:17As they went to tell His disciples, suddenly Jesus met them, saying, “Greetings!” They came and took hold of His feet and worshipped Him. 10#Jn 20:17; Ro 8:29Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell My brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”
The Report of the Guard
11#Mt 27:65–66While they were going, indeed, some of the soldiers went into the city and described to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12When the chief priests were assembled with the elders and had taken counsel, they gave much money to the soldiers, 13saying, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were sleeping.’ 14#Mt 27:2If this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you secure.” 15#Mt 27:8So they took the money and did as they were instructed. And this saying has been commonly reported among the Jews to this day.
The Commissioning of the Disciples
Mk 16:14–18; Lk 24:36–49; Jn 20:19–23; Ac 1:6–8
16#Mt 28:7; 26:32Then the eleven disciples went away to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17#Mt 28:9When they saw Him, they worshipped Him. But some doubted. 18#Mt 11:27; Ro 14:9Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19#Mk 16:15–16; Ac 1:8Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20#Mt 18:20; Ac 2:42teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you. And remember, I am 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."
