Jesus Comes Back to Life
Matthew 28:1–10; Luke 24:1–12; John 20:1–10
1 When the day of worship was over, Mary from Magdala, Mary (the mother of James), and Salome bought spices to go and anoint Jesus.
2 On Sunday they were going to the tomb very early when the sun had just come up. 3 They said to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” 4 When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away. It was a very large stone. 5 As they went into the tomb, they saw a young man. He was dressed in a white robe and sat on the right side. They were panic-stricken.
6 The young man said to them, “Don’t panic! You’re looking for Jesus from Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been brought back to life. He’s not here. Look at the place where they laid him. 7 Go and tell his disciples and Peter that he’s going ahead of them to Galilee. There they will see him, just as he told them.”
8 They went out of the tomb and ran away. Shock and trembling had overwhelmed them. They didn’t say a thing to anyone, because they were afraid.#Some manuscripts and translations end Mark here; some add verses 9–20.
Jesus Appears to His Followers
9 After Jesus came back to life early on Sunday, he appeared first to Mary from Magdala, from whom he had forced out seven demons. 10 She went and told his friends, who were grieving and crying. 11 They didn’t believe her when they heard that he was alive and that she had seen him.
12 Later Jesus appeared to two disciples as they were walking to their home in the country. He did not look as he usually did. 13 They went back and told the others, who did not believe them either. 14 Still later Jesus appeared to the eleven apostles while they were eating. He put them to shame for their unbelief and because they were too stubborn to believe those who had seen him alive.
15 Then Jesus said to them, “So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 “These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the power and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak new languages. 18 They will pick up snakes, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick and cure them.”
19 After talking with the apostles, the Lord was taken to heaven, where God gave him the highest position.
20 The disciples spread ⌊the Good News⌋ everywhere. The Lord worked with them. He confirmed his word by the miraculous signs that accompanied it.

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.
