MT 28:1 Now late on the sabbath day, as it began to dawn toward the first `day' of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
MT 28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled away the stone, and sat upon it.
MT 28:3 His appearance was as lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
MT 28:4 and for fear of him the watchers did quake, and became as dead men.
MT 28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, who hath been crucified.
MT 28:6 He is not here; for he is risen, even as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
MT 28:7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples, He is risen from the dead; and lo, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
MT 28:8 And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring his disciples word.
MT 28:9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and took hold of his feet, and worshipped him.
MT 28:10 Then saith Jesus unto them, Fear not: go tell my brethren that they depart into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
MT 28:11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city, and told unto the chief priests all the things that were come to pass.
MT 28:12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave much money unto the soldiers,
MT 28:13 saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
MT 28:14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and rid you of care.
MT 28:15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying was spread abroad among the Jews, `and continueth' until this day.
MT 28:16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
MT 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped `him'; but some doubted.
MT 28:18 And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.
MT 28:19 Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:
MT 28:20 teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
