1 The next evening, when the Sabbath ended, Mary Magdalene and Salome and Mary the mother of James went out and purchased burial spices to put on Jesus' body. 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, just at sunrise, they came 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 On the way they were discussing who would roll the stone away from the entrance to the tomb. 3 and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 But when they arrived, they looked up and saw that the stone -- a very large one -- had already been rolled aside. 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
5 So they entered the tomb, and there on the right sat a young man clothed in a white robe. The women were startled, 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 but the angel said, "Do not be so surprised. You are looking for Jesus, the Nazarene, who was crucified. He isn't here! He has been raised from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. 6 "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.
7 Now go and give this message to his disciples, including Peter: Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you before he died!" 7 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.' "
8 The women fled from the tomb, trembling and bewildered, saying nothing to anyone because they were too frightened to talk. Then they reported all these instructions briefly to Peter and his companions. Afterward Jesus himself sent them out from east to west with the sacred and unfailing message of salvation that gives eternal life. Amen. 8 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
9 It was early on Sunday morning when Jesus rose from the dead, and the first person who saw him was Mary Magdalene, the woman from whom he had cast out seven demons. 9 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.
10 She went and found the disciples, who were grieving and weeping. 10 She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping.
11 But when she told them that Jesus was alive and she had seen him, they didn't believe her. 11 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
12 Afterward he appeared to two who were walking from Jerusalem into the country, but they didn't recognize him at first because he had changed his appearance. 12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.
13 When they realized who he was, they rushed back to tell the others, but no one believed them. 13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
14 Still later he appeared to the eleven disciples as they were eating together. He rebuked them for their unbelief -- their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. 14 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.
15 And then he told them, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. 15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won't hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick and heal them." 18 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."
19 When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God's right hand. 19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked with them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs. 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.
