1 Now after the sabbath, in the dawning towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, to look at the sepulchre: 2 and behold, there had been a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descending from heaven, had come and rolled away the stone from the door, and was sitting upon it: 3 (and his countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 and the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men:)
5 and the angel said to the women, Be not ye afraid: for I know that 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 his disciples that He is risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee; there ye shall see Him; lo, I have told you.
8 And they went immediately from the sepulchre, with fear, and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them and said, God save you. And they drew near and embraced his feet, and worshipped Him. 10 Then saith Jesus unto them, Be not afraid, go tell my brethren to repair into Galilee, and there they shall see me.
11 Now while they were going, behold some of the guard came into the city, and told the chief priests all that had happened: 12 and they assembled with the elders, and taking counsel together gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 saying, Do you say, that his disciples came by night, and stole Him away, while we were asleep. 14 And if this should come to a hearing before the governor, we will satisfy him, and indemnify you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were instructed: and this is commonly reported among the Jews to this day.
16 And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the 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 both in heaven and on earth. 19 Go ye therefore and instruct all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, 20 and of the holy Ghost, and 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. Amen.
