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

1Now after the sabbath, in the dawning towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, to look at the sepulchre: 2and behold, there had been a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descending from heaven, had come and rolled away the stone from the door, and was sitting upon it: 3(and his countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4and the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men:) 5and the angel said to the women, Be not ye afraid: for I know that ye seek Jesus who was crucified. 6He is not here, for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay: 7and go quickly, and tell his disciples that He is risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee; there ye shall see Him; lo, I have told you.

8And they went immediately from the sepulchre, with fear, and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them and said, God save you. And they drew near and embraced his feet, and worshipped Him.

10Then saith Jesus unto them, Be not afraid, go tell my brethren to repair into Galilee, and there they shall see me.

The Report of the Guards

11Now while they were going, behold some of the guard came into the city, and told the chief priests all that had happened: 12and they assembled with the elders, and taking counsel together gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13saying, Do you say, that his disciples came by night, and stole Him away, while we were asleep. 14And if this should come to a hearing before the governor, we will satisfy him, and indemnify you. 15So they took the money, and did as they were instructed: and this is commonly reported among the Jews to this day.

The Great Commission
(Mark 16:14–18)

16And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me both in heaven and on earth. 19Go ye therefore and instruct all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, 20and of the holy Ghost, and teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.
