Mary Magdalene Sees the Risen Lord(A)

[a]Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, (B)out of whom He had cast seven demons. 10 (C)She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. 11 (D)And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.

Jesus Appears to Two Disciples(E)

12 After that, He appeared in another form (F)to two of them as they walked and went into the country. 13 And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.

The Great Commission(G)

14 (H)Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 (I)And He said to them, “Go into all the world (J)and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 (K)He who believes and is baptized will be saved; (L)but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these (M)signs will follow those who [b]believe: (N)In My name they will cast out demons; (O)they will speak with new tongues; 18 (P)they[c] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; (Q)they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Christ Ascends to God’s Right Hand(R)

19 So then, (S)after the Lord had spoken to them, He was (T)received up into heaven, and (U)sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them (V)and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
