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.
1Once the Sabbath had ended, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought aromatic ointments so that they could go and anoint Jesus’ body. 2Very early Sunday#16:2. Literally, “the first day of the week.” morning, just at sunrise, they went to the tomb. 3They were asking each other, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” 4But when they arrived and looked, they saw that the very large, heavy stone had already been rolled away.
5When they went into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right, wearing a long white robe. They became very frightened.
6“Don’t be frightened,” he told them. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, the one who was crucified. He is risen from the dead. He is not here. 7Look, this is the place where they laid him to rest. Now go, and tell his disciples and Peter that he’s going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there just as he told you.”
8They left and ran from the tomb, shaking and confused. They said nothing to anyone because they were too scared#16:8. Many of the early manuscripts of Mark end here. Others continue as shown..
9When Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday morning, he appeared first of all to Mary Magdalene, from whom he’d driven out seven demons. 10She went and told those who had been with him as they mourned and cried. 11When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they didn’t believe it. 12Later Jesus appeared in a different form to two other disciples who’d left to go to the countryside. 13They returned and told the others, but they didn’t believe them either.
14After this he appeared to the eleven disciples as they were eating. He rebuked them for their lack of trust and their stubbornness, because they had not believed those who’d seen him after he had risen.
15Then he told them, “Go to the whole world, and announce the good news to everyone#16:15. Literally, “all creation.”. 16“Anyone who trusts in me and is baptized will be saved, but anyone who chooses not to trust will be condemned. 17The following signs will accompany those who trust in me: in my name they will drive out demons; they will speak new languages; 18they will be able to handle snakes; if they drink something poisonous they won’t be harmed; they will place their hands on the sick and they will be healed.”
19Then, the Lord Jesus, when he had finished speaking to them, was taken up into heaven where he sat down at the right hand of God. 20The disciples went out and spread the good news everywhere, and the Lord worked with them, confirming the message through miraculous signs that accompanied it.
