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."

Resurrection Morning
1After the Sabbath, # Mk 16:1-8; Lk 24:1-10; Jn 20:1-8 as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to view the tomb. 2Suddenly there was a violent earthquake, because an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and approached the tomb. He rolled back the stone and was sitting on it. # Lk 24:4; Jn 20:12 3His appearance was like lightning, and his robe was as white as snow. # Dn 7:9; 10:6; Mk 9:3; Jn 20:12; Ac 1:10 4The guards were so shaken from fear of him that they became like dead men.
5But the angel told the women, “Don’t be afraid, because I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. # Mt 14:27; 28:10; Rv 1:17 6He is not here! For He has been resurrected, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay. # Mt 12:40; 16:21; 27:63 7Then go quickly and tell His disciples, # Mt 10:1; 26:56; Mk 3:7; 16:20; Lk 6:13; Jn 12:16 ‘He has been raised from the dead. In fact, He is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see Him there.’ Listen, I have told you.” # Mt 26:32; Mk 16:7
8So, departing quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, they ran to tell His disciples the news. 9Just then # Other mss add as they were on their way to tell the news to His disciples Jesus met them and said, “Good morning! ” They came up, took hold of His feet, and worshiped Him. # Mk 16:9; Jn 20:14 10Then Jesus told them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see Me there.” # Jn 20:17; Rm 8:29; Heb 2:11-12,17
The Soldiers Are Bribed to Lie
11As they were on their way, some of the guards came into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12After the priests # Lit After they had assembled with the elders and agreed on a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money 13and told them, “Say this, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole Him while we were sleeping.’ 14If this reaches the governor’s ears, # Lit this is heard by the governor we will deal with # Lit will persuade him and keep you out of trouble.” # Mt 27:2; Ac 12:20 15So they took the money and did as they were instructed.

The Great Commission
16The 11 disciples traveled to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had directed them. # Mt 26:32; 28:7 17When they saw Him, they worshiped, # Other mss add Him but some doubted. 18Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. # Dn 7:13-14; Jn 17:2; Rm 14:9; Eph 1:20-22; Php 2:9-10; Col 2:10; 1Pt 3:22 19Go, therefore, and make disciples # Mt 10:42; 28:19; Lk 14:26; Jn 8:31; 13:35; 15:8; Ac 6:1 of # Or and disciple ; lit and instruct all nations, # Mk 16:15; Lk 24:47 baptizing # Ac 2:38; 8:16 them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.
