Jesus Is Raised

1 Now after the Sabbath, at the dawning on the first [day] of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to view the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came up [and]a rolled away the stone and sat downb on it. 3 Now his appearance was like lightning and his clothing white as snow. 4 And the guards trembled from the fear of him and became like dead men. 5 But the angel answered [and]c said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has been raised, just as he said. Come, see the place where he was lying. 7 And go quickly, tell his disciples, 'He has been raised from the dead, and behold, he is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there.' Behold, I have told you." 8 And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, [and]d ran to tell his disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Greetings!" And they came up [and]e took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid! Go tell my brothers that they should go to Galilee, and there they will see me."

The Guards Report the Body Stolen

11 And [while]f they were going, behold, some of the guard of soldiers went into the city [and]g reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 And [after they]h had assembled with the elders and had taken counsel, they gave a rather large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 telling [them],i "Say 'His disciples came during the night [and]j stole him [while]k we were sleeping.' 14 And if this [matter] is heard before the governor, we will satisfy him and {keep you out of trouble}."l 15 So they took the money [and]m did as they were told, and spread abroad this report among the Jews until this very day.

The Great Commission

16 So the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated for them. 17 And [when they]n saw him, they worshiped [him],o but some doubted. 18 And Jesus approached [and]p spoke to them, saying, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore, goq [and]r make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the age."
