Jesus Rises From The Dead. The Women Find The Tomb Empty
16 And the Sabbath having passed[a], Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices in order that having come, they might anoint Him. 2 And very early-in-the-morning on the first day of the week, they come to the tomb— the sun having risen. 3 And they were saying to themselves, “Who will roll-away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” 4 And having looked-up, they see that the stone has been rolled-away. For it was extremely large. 5 And having entered into the tomb, they saw a young-man sitting at the right, having been clothed-with a white robe. And they were alarmed. 6 But the one says to them, “Do not be alarmed. You are seeking Jesus from-Nazareth, the One having been crucified. He arose, He is not here. Look— the place where they laid Him! 7 But go, tell His disciples and Peter that ‘He is going-ahead-of you to Galilee. You will see Him there, just as He told you’”. 8 And having gone out, they fled from the tomb. For trembling and astonishment was holding them. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were fearing.
[Most Greek manuscripts have this “Long[b] Ending” after verse 8, but two of the oldest omit it].
Jesus Appears To Mary, Then To Two In The Country, Then To The Eleven
9 And [Jesus] having risen-up early-in-the-morning on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary the Magdalene, from whom He had cast-out seven demons. 10 That one, having gone, reported it to the ones having been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. 11 And-those-ones, having heard that He was alive and was seen by her, did not-believe[c]her.12 And after these things, He appeared in a different form to two of them walking, while they were proceeding into the country. 13 And those ones, having gone, reported it to the rest. They did not even believe those ones.14 And later He appeared to the eleven themselves while they were reclining-back [to eat]. And He reproached[d] their unbelief and hardness-of-heart because they did not believe the ones having seen Him arisen.
Jesus Commissions His Followers To Proclaim The Gospel To All Creation
15 And He said to them, “Having gone into all the world, proclaim the good-news to[e] all creation. 16 The one having believed and having been baptized will be saved. But the one having not-believed will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany[f] the ones having believed: in My name they will cast-out demons, they will speak in[g] new tongues[h], 18 and they will pick up snakes[i] with their hands. And if they drink any deadly thing, it will by-no-means[j] hurt[k] them. They will lay hands on sick ones, and they will be well”.
Jesus Is Taken Up Into Heaven
19 So indeed the Lord Jesus, after He spoke to them, was taken-up into heaven and sat-down on the right side of God. 20 And those ones, having gone-forth, proclaimed it everywhere, the Lord working-with them and confirming[l] the word by the signs following-after[m]them.
[A few Greek manuscripts have this “Short[n] Ending” after verse 8, followed by the “long ending” above]
And they promptly reported all the things having been commanded them to the ones around Peter. And after these things, Jesus Himself also sent-forth the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation through them, from the east and as-far-as the west. Amen.
Mark 16:1That is, after sunset on Saturday night (as we call it).
Mark 16:8Some think Mark wrote this ending; others think another wrote it, perhaps at Mark’s direction, after the last page of the manuscript was lost.
