MAT.28:1 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
MAT.28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.
MAT.28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
MAT.28:4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
MAT.28:5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
MAT.28:6 “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
MAT.28:7 “And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
MAT.28:8 So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.
MAT.28:9 And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
MAT.28:10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”
MAT.28:11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.
MAT.28:12 When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
MAT.28:13 saying, “Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’
MAT.28:14 “And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.”
MAT.28:15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
MAT.28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.
MAT.28:17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
MAT.28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
MAT.28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
MAT.28:20 “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
