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

1And after the sabbaths, in the shining forth to one of the sabbaths, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to behold the tomb. 2And, behold, there was a great shaking; for a messenger of the Lord, having come down out of heaven, having come near, rolled away the stone from the door, and sat above it. 3And his aspect was as lightning, and his garment white as snow. 4And from fear of him the keepers were shaken, and were as dead. 5And the messenger, having answered, said to the women, Be ye not afraid; for I know that ye seek Jesus, having been crucified. 6He is not here: for he was raised, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And having gone quickly, say ye to his disciples, that he was raised from the dead; and, behold, he leads before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him: behold I have said to you.

8And they having come quickly from the tomb, with fear and great joy, ran to announce to his disciples. 9And as they were going to announce to his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, Rejoice ye. And they having come, held his feet firmly, and worshipped him.

10Then says Jesus to them, Be ye not afraid: retire, and announce to my brethren that they should go away into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

The Report of the Guards

11And they going, behold certain of the watch having come to the city, announced to the chief priests all having been done. 12And having been gathered together with the elders, and having taken counsel, they gave sufficient silver coins to the soldiers, 13Saying, Say ye, That his disciples having come by night, stole him, we being asleep. 14And if this should be beard by the leader, we will persuade him, and we will make you undisturbed. 15And they having received the silver coins, did as they were taught; and this word was spread a report by the Jews till this day.

The Great Commission
(Mark 16:14–18)

16And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, into a mountain, where Jesus commanded them: 17And having seen him, they worshipped him; and some doubted. 18And Jesus, having come near, spake to them, saying, All power has been given me in heaven and upon earth: 19Therefore, having gone, disciple all nations; immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: 20Teaching them to keep all things whatever I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you all the days, even to the end of time. Amen.
