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

1Now in the end of the Sabbath, when the first day of ye weeke began to dawne, Marie Magdalene, and the other Marie came to see the sepulchre, 2And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the Angel of the Lorde descended from heauen, and came and rolled backe the stone from the doore, and sate vpon it. 3And his countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snowe. 4And for feare of him, the keepers were astonied, and became as dead men. 5But the Angel answered, & said to the women, Feare ye not: for I know that ye seeke Iesus which was crucified: 6He is not here, for he is risen; as he saide: come, see the place where the Lord was laid, 7And go quickly, & tel his disciples that he is risen fro ye dead: & behold, he goeth before you into Galile: there ye shall see him: loe, I haue told you.

8So they departed quickly from the sepulchre, with feare and great ioye, and did runne to bring his disciples worde. 9And as they wet to tel his disciples, behold, Iesus also met the, saying, God saue you; they came, and tooke him by the feete, and worshipped him.

10Then said Iesus vnto them, Be not afraide. Goe, and tell my brethren, that they goe into Galile, and there shall they see me.

16Then ye eleuen disciples wet into Galile, into a mountaine, where Iesus had appointed the. 17And when they sawe him, they worshipped him: but some douted. 18And Iesus came, and spake vnto them, saying, All power is giuen vnto me, in heauen, and in earth. 19Go therefore, & teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and the Sonne, and the holy Ghost, 20Teaching them to obserue all things, whatsoeuer I haue commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, vntill the ende of the worlde, Amen.
