28 1 The women go to the sepulcher. 2 The Angel. 9 The women see Christ. 18 He sendeth his Apostles to preach.

Now (A)in [a]the [b]end of the Sabbath, when the first day of the week [c]began to dawn, Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, came to see the sepulcher.

And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

And his [d]countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
