Mark 16:1-8

The Resurrection

1 When the Sabbath was past, 1Mary Magdalene and 2Mary the mother of James and 3Salome 4bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him.
2 And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb.
3 And they were saying to one another, "Who will roll away 5the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back--6it was very large.
5 And 7entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, 8dressed in 9a white robe, and 10they were alarmed.
6 And he said to them, 11"Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that 12he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, 13just as he told you."
8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

6 And he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.

9 [[Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.
10 She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
11 But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it.
12 After these things he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country.
