After the sabbath, as the first day of the week
was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary
went to see the tomb.
And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an
angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came
and rolled back the stone and sat on it.
His appearance was like lightning, and his
clothing white as snow. For fear of him the
guards shook and became like dead men.
But the angel said to the women, "Do not be
afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who
He is not here; for he has been
raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he
lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples,
'He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he
is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will
see him.' This is my message for you."
So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great
joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Suddenly Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!"
And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go
and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they
will see me."
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the
mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When
they saw him, they worshiped him; but some
doubted. And Jesus came and said to them,
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been
given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
teaching them to obey everything that I have
And remember, I am with you always,
to the end of the age."
