12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers 13 and said, “Tell people, (A)‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 And if this comes to (B)the governor's ears, we will (C)satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews (D)to this day.

The Great Commission

16 Now the eleven disciples (E)went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they (F)worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, (G)“All authority (H)in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 (I)Go therefore and (J)make disciples of (K)all nations, (L)baptizing them (M)in[a] (N)the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them (O)to observe all that (P)I have commanded you. And behold, (Q)I am with you always, to (R)the end of the age.”
