1 Now after the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre. 2 And behold, there had been a great earthquake, and an angel of the Lord descending from heaven, had come and rolled away the stone from the door and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 4 And for fear of him the guards trembled, and became as dead men.
5 But the angel answering said to the women, Fear not ye; for I know ye seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for he is risen, as he said: come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly and tell the disciples, that he is risen from the dead. And behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him.
8 Lo, I have told you. And departing quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy they ran to tell his disciples. 9 And behold Jesus met them and said, Hail. And they came, and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then saith Jesus to them, Fear not. Go tell my brethren to go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
11 While they were going, behold some of the guard coming into the city, told the chief priests all the things that had been done. 12 And having met together with the elders and taken counsel, they gave large mony to the soldiers, 13 Saying, Say his disciples came by night, and stole him while we slept. 14 And if this come to the governour's ears, we will persuade him and secure you. 15 So they took the money and did as they were taught; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews till this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went into Galilee to the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, tho' some had doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spake to them, saying, All power is given me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye and disciple all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo I am with you always, even to the end of the world.
