9They promptly reported all of the young man’s instructions to those who were with Peter. Afterward, through the work of his disciples, Jesus sent out, from the east to the west, the sacred and undying message of eternal salvation. Amen. ]
[[9After Jesus rose up early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10She went and reported to the ones who had been with him, who were mourning and weeping. 11But even after they heard the news, they didn’t believe that Jesus was alive and that Mary had seen him.
12After that he appeared in a different form to two of them who were walking along in the countryside. 13When they returned, they reported it to the others, but they didn’t believe them. 14Finally he appeared to the eleven while they were eating. Jesus criticized their unbelief and stubbornness because they didn’t believe those who saw him after he was raised up. 15He said to them, "Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to every creature. 16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever doesn’t believe will be condemned. 17These signs will be associated with those who believe: they will throw out demons in my name. They will speak in new languages. 18They will pick up snakes with their hands. If they drink anything poisonous, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick, and they will get well."
19After the Lord Jesus spoke to them, he was lifted up into heaven and sat down on the right side of God. 20But they went out and proclaimed the message everywhere. The Lord worked with them, confirming the word by the signs associated with them.]]
