28 1 The women go to the sepulcher. 2 The Angel. 9 The women see Christ. 18 He sendeth his Apostles to preach.
1 Now 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.
2 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.
3 And his [d]countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
4 And for fear of him, the keepers were astonied, and became as dead men.
5 But the Angel answered, and said to the women, Fear [e]ye not: for I know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified:
6 He is not here, for he is risen, as he said: come, see the place where the Lord was laid,
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead: and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee: there ye shall see him: lo, I have told you.
8 So they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great joy, and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 [f]And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus also met them, saying, God save you. And they came, and took him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid. Go, and tell my brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
11 ¶ [g]Now when they were gone, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed unto the high Priests all the things that were done.
12 And they gathered them together with the Elders, and took counsel, and gave large money unto the soldiers,
13 Saying, Say, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
14 And if this matter [h]come before the governor to be heard, we will persuade him, and so use the matter that you shall not need to care,
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is noised among the Jews unto this day.
16 ¶ [i]Then the eleven disciples went into Galilee, into a mountain, where Jesus had appointed them.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came, and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me, in heaven, and in earth.
19 [j]Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them [k]in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the holy Ghost,
20 Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you [l]alway, until the end of the world, Amen.
