(Psalm 16:1-11; Psalm 49:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-9)
1In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.
2And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
4And for fear of him the keepers trembled and became as dead men.
5And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear ye not: 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 goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8And they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great joy; and ran to bring word to his disciples.
9And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came, and held him by the feet, and worshiped him.
10Then said Jesus to them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
The Report of the Guards
11Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed to the chief priests all the things that had been done.
12And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
13Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
14And if this shall come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.
15So they took the money, and did as they were instructed: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
The Great Commission
16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
17And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted.
18And Jesus came, and spoke to them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and upon earth.
19Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
20Teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.
