Matthew 28

Jesus Rises From the Dead
1After the Sabbath day was over, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came back to the tomb.
2Just then there was a powerful earthquake. An angel of the Lord came down from heaven, went over to the tomb, rolled back the stone, and sat down on it. 3His body shone like lightning and his clothes were as white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they trembled and became limp, as if they were dead.
5The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid. I know you’re looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He’s not here. He has risen, just as he said he would! Come and see the place where he was lying. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has risen from the dead! He will go ahead of you to Galilee, and you’ll see him there.’ It will be as I’ve told you.”
8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid but filled with joy. They ran to tell the disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Good morning!” They came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They’ll see me there.”
The Guards Report to the Chief Priests
11While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported everything that had happened to the chief priests. 12So the chief priests met with the elders and came up with a plan. They gave the soldiers a large amount of money 13and told them to say, “His disciples came during the night and stole his body while we were sleeping.” They added, 14“If the governor hears this report, we’ll make sure you don’t get into trouble.” 15So the soldiers took the money and did as they were told, and their story is still being told among the Jews to this day.
Jesus’ Final Words to His Disciples
16Then the 11 disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him, though some still had their doubts. 18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19So go and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 20Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And you can be sure that I will always be with you, to the very end of the age.”
1Now late on sabbath, as it was the dusk of the next day after sabbath, came Mary of Magdala and the other Mary to look at the sepulchre. 2And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending out of heaven, came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3And his look was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4And for fear of him the guards trembled and became as dead men. 5And the angel answering said to the women, Fear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus the crucified one. 6He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And go quickly and say to his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and behold, he goes before you into Galilee, there shall ye see him. Behold, I have told you. 8And going out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, they ran to bring his disciples word. 9And as they went to bring his disciples word, behold also, Jesus met them, saying, Hail! And they coming up took him by the feet, and did him homage. 10Then Jesus says to them, Fear not; go, bring word to my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there they shall see me.
11And as they went, behold, some of the watch went into the city, and brought word to the chief priests of all that had taken place. 12And having assembled with the elders, and having taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13saying, Say that his disciples coming by night stole him while we were sleeping. 14And if this should come to the hearing of the governor, we will persuade him, and save you from all anxiety. 15And they took the money and did as they had been taught. And this report is current among the Jews until this day.
16But the eleven disciples went into Galilee to the mountain which Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they did homage to him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus coming up spoke to them, saying, All power has been given me in heaven and upon earth. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them to the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 20teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have enjoined you. And behold, I am with you all the days, until the completion of the age.
