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.

Jesus Rises From the Dead
1The Sabbath day ended. Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices. They were going to apply them to Jesus' body.
2Very early on the first day of the week, they were on their way to the tomb. It was just after sunrise. 3They asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance to the tomb?"
4Then they looked up and saw that the stone had been rolled away. The stone was very large.
5They entered the tomb. As they did, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe. He was sitting on the right side. They were alarmed.
6"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. But he has risen! He is not here! See the place where they had put him. 7Go! Tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him. It will be just as he told you.' "
8The women were shaking and confused. They went out and ran away from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
9Jesus rose from the dead early on the first day of the week. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene. He had driven seven demons out of her. 10She went and told those who had been with him. She found them crying. They were very sad. 11They heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him. But they did not believe it.
12After that, Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them. This happened while they were walking out in the country. 13The two returned and told the others about it. But the others did not believe them either.
14Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating. He spoke firmly to them because they had no faith. They would not believe those who had seen him after he rose from the dead.
15He said to them, "Go into all the world. Preach the good news to everyone. 16Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who does not believe will be punished. 17Here are the miraculous signs that those who believe will do. In my name they will drive out demons. They will speak in languages they had not known before. 18They will pick up snakes with their hands. And when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all. They will place their hands on sick people. And the people will get well."
19When the Lord Jesus finished speaking to them, he was taken up into heaven. He sat down at the right hand of God.
20Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere. The Lord worked with them. And he backed up his word by the signs that went with it.
