The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so they could embalm him. 1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body.
2 Very early on Sunday morning, as the sun rose, they went to the tomb. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
3 They worried out loud to each other, "Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us?" 3 and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 Then they looked up, saw that it had been rolled back - it was a huge stone - and walked right in. 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
6 He said, "Don't be afraid. I know you're looking for Jesus the Nazarene, the One they nailed on the cross. He's been raised up; he's here no longer. You can see for yourselves that the place is empty. 6 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
7 Now - on your way. Tell his disciples and Peter that he is going on ahead of you to Galilee. You'll see him there, exactly as he said." 7 "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
8 They got out as fast as they could, beside themselves, their heads swimming. Stunned, they said nothing to anyone. 8 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.' "
9 [After rising from the dead, Jesus appeared early on Sunday morning to Mary Magdalene, whom he had delivered from seven demons. 9 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
10 She went to his former companions, now weeping and carrying on, and told them. 10 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
11 They saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed all in white. They were completely taken aback, astonished. When they heard her report that she had seen him alive and well, they didn't believe her. 11 She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping.
12 Later he appeared, but in a different form, to two of them out walking in the countryside. 12 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
13 They went back and told the rest, but they weren't believed either. 13 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.
14 Still later, as the Eleven were eating supper, he appeared and took them to task most severely for their stubborn unbelief, refusing to believe those who had seen him raised up. 14 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
15 Then he said, "Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God's good news to one and all. 15 Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
16 Whoever believes and is baptized is saved; whoever refuses to believe is damned. 16 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
17 "These are some of the signs that will accompany believers: They will throw out demons in my name, they will speak in new tongues, 17 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
18 they will take snakes in their hands, they will drink poison and not be hurt, they will lay hands on the sick and make them well." 18 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
19 Then the Master Jesus, after briefing them, was taken up to heaven, and he sat down beside God in the place of honor. 19 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
20 And the disciples went everywhere preaching, the Master working right with them, validating the Message with indisputable evidence.] 20 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
20 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
