The Resurrection
(Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–12; John 20:1–9)

1In the later ende of the Sabboth day, whiche dawneth the first daye of the weke, came Marie Magdalen, and the other Marie, to see the sepulchre. 2And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the Angell of the Lorde descended from heauen, and came & roulled backe the stone from the doore, and sate vpon it. 3His countenaunce was lyke lyghtnyng, and his rayment white as snowe. 4And for feare of him, the kepers were astonyed, and became as dead men. 5The Angell aunswered, and sayde vnto the women, feare ye not: For I knowe that ye seke Iesus whiche was crucified. 6He is not here, he is rysen, as he saide. Come, se the place where that the Lord was layde. 7And go quickly, & tell his disciples that he is rysen agayne from the dead. And beholde, he goeth before you into Galilee, there shall ye see hym. Loe, I haue tolde you.

8And they departed quickly from the sepulchre, with feare, and great ioy, and dyd runne, to bryng his disciples worde. 9And as they went to tell his disciples, beholde, Iesus met them, saying: All hayle. And they came and helde him by the feete, and worshypped hym.

10Then sayde Iesus vnto them: be not afrayde. Go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, & there shal they see me.

The Report of the Guards

11When they were gone, beholde, some of the watche came into the citie, and shewed vnto the hye priestes all the thynges that were done. 12And they gathered the together, with the elders, and toke councell, and gaue large money vnto the souldiers, 13Saying. Saye ye, that his disciples came by nyght, & stole hym away while ye slept. 14And yf this come to the deputies eares we wyll perswade hym, and saue you harmelesse. 15So they toke the money, & dyd as they were taught. And this saying is noysed among the Iewes, vntyl this day.

The Great Commission
(Mark 16:14–18)

16Then the eleuen disciples went awaye into Galilee, into a mountayne, where Iesus had appoynted them. 17And when they sawe hym, they worshypped hym: But some doubted. 18And Iesus came, and spake vnto the, saying: All power is geuen vnto me in heauen and in earth. 19Go ye therfore, & teache all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the sonne, and of the holye ghost: 20Teachyng the to obserue all thynges, whatsoeuer I haue commaunded you. And loe, I am with you alway, euen vnto the ende of the worlde.
