|<< Matthew 28 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
But on the eve of the Sabbath, when the first of the week was dawning, Maryam Magdalitha and the other Maryam came to see the tomb.
And behold there was a great earthquake, for The Angel of THE LORD JEHOVAH descended from Heaven, and he came, he rolled the stone from the entrance and sat upon it.
And his appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow.
And from dread of him, those who were keeping watch were shaken, and they became like dead men.
But the Angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are seeking Yeshua, who was crucified.”
“He is not here, for he is raised just as he said; come see the place in which our Lord was laid.”
“And go quickly; say to his disciples that he has risen from the grave, and behold, he goes before you to Galilee; there you will see him; behold I have told you.”
8And they went quickly from the tomb with fear and with great joy, and they ran to tell his disciples.
9And behold, Yeshua met them and he said to them, “Peace to you”, but they came and held his feet and they worshiped him.
10Then Yeshua said to them, “Do not be afraid, but go tell my brothers to go to Galilee and there they will see me.”
11And as they were going, some of the guards came to the city and they told the Chief Priests everything that had occurred.
12And they gave not a few silver shekels to the guards and they gathered with the Elders and held a council.
13And they were saying to them, “Say, 'His disciples came and stole it in the night, while we slept'.”
14“And if this should be reported before the Governor, we will persuade him, and we will relieve your concerns.”
15But when they took the silver coins, they did as they had instructed them, and this story has gone out among the Judeans till this day.
16But the eleven disciples went to Galilee to the mountain where Yeshua had appointed them.
17And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some of them doubted.
18And Yeshua spoke with them and he said to them, “All authority has been given to me in Heaven and in the earth; in the manner in which my Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
19“Therefore go disciple all the nations and baptize them in the name of The Father and The Son and The Spirit of Holiness.”
20“And instruct them to keep everything whatever I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you every day, even unto the end of time. Amen”
