28 1 And on the eve of the sabbaths, at the dawn, toward the first of the sabbaths, came Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre, 2 and lo, there came a great earthquake, for a messenger of the Lord, having come down out of heaven, having come, did roll away the stone from the door, and was sitting upon it, 3 and his countenance was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow, 4 and from the fear of him did the keepers shake, and they became as dead men. 5 And the messenger answering said to the women, 'Fear not ye, for I have known that Jesus, who hath been crucified, ye seek; 6 he is not here, for he rose, as he said; come, see the place where the Lord was lying; 7 and having gone quickly, say ye to his disciples, that he rose from the dead; and lo, he doth go before you to Galilee, there ye shall see him; lo, I have told you.' 8 And having gone forth quickly from the tomb, with fear and great joy, they ran to tell to his disciples; 9 and as they were going to tell to his disciples, then lo, Jesus met them, saying, 'Hail!' and they having come near, laid hold of his feet, and did bow to him. 10 Then saith Jesus to them, 'Fear ye not, go away, tell to my brethren that they may go away to Galilee, and there they shall see me.'
The Report of the Guard
11 And while they are going on, lo, certain of the watch having come to the city, told to the chief priests all the things that happened, 12 and having been gathered together with the elders, counsel also having taken, they gave much money to the soldiers, 13 saying, 'Say ye, that his disciples having come by night, stole him—we being asleep; 14 and if this be heard by the governor, we will persuade him, and you keep free from anxiety.' 15 And they, having received the money, did as they were taught, and this account was spread abroad among Jews till this day.

16 And the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mount where Jesus appointed them, 17 and having seen him, they bowed to him, but some did waver. 18 And having come near, Jesus spake to them, saying, 'Given to me was all authority in heaven and on earth; 19 having gone, then, disciple all the nations, (baptizing them—to the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all, whatever I did command you,) and lo, I am with you all the days—till the full end of the age.'
16 1 And the sabbath having past, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary of James, and Salome, bought spices, that having come, they may anoint him, 2 and early in the morning of the first of the sabbaths, they come unto the sepulchre, at the rising of the sun, 3 and they said among themselves, 'Who shall roll away for us the stone out of the door of the sepulchre?' 4 And having looked, they see that the stone hath been rolled away—for it was very great, 5 and having entered into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right hand, arrayed in a long white robe, and they were amazed. 6 And he saith to them, 'Be not amazed, ye seek Jesus the Nazarene, the crucified: he did rise—he is not here; lo, the place where they laid him! 7 and go, say to his disciples, and Peter, that he doth go before you to Galilee; there ye shall see him, as he said to you.' 8 And, having come forth quickly, they fled from the sepulchre, and trembling and amazement had seized them, and to no one said they anything, for they were afraid.
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
9 And he, having risen in the morning of the first of the sabbaths, did appear first to Mary the Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven demons; 10 she having gone, told those who had been with him, mourning and weeping; 11 and they, having heard that he is alive, and was seen by her, did not believe.

14 Afterwards, as they are reclining (at meat), he was manifested to the eleven, and did reproach their unbelief and stiffness of heart, because they believed not those having seen him being raised; 15 and he said to them, 'Having gone to all the world, proclaim the good news to all the creation; 16 he who hath believed, and hath been baptized, shall be saved; and he who hath not believed, shall be condemned. 17 'And signs shall accompany those believing these things; in my name demons they shall cast out; with new tongues they shall speak; 18 serpents they shall take up; and if any deadly thing they may drink, it shall not hurt them; on the ailing they shall lay hands, and they shall be well.'
19 The Lord, then, indeed, after speaking to them, was received up to the heaven, and sat on the right hand of God; 20 and they, having gone forth, did preach everywhere, the Lord working with 'them', and confirming the word, through the signs following. Amen.
