28 And late in the week when it was on the point of dawning into the first of the week came Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, to view the sepulchre.
2 And lo! a great commotion occurred,—for a messenger of the Lord descending out of heaven and coming near had rolled away the stone, and was sitting upon it.
3 Now his appearance was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow;
4 and for fear of him they who were keeping watch were thrown into a commotion, and became as dead men.
5 But the messenger answering said unto the women—Be not ye afraid! For I know that Jesus the crucified ye are seeking:
6 He is not here, for he hath arisen as he said. Come! see the place where he lay;
7 And quickly going tell his disciples—He hath arisen from the dead, And lo! he is going before you into Galilee;—There shall ye yourselves see him: Lo! I have told you.
8 And departing quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy they ran to bring tidings unto his disciples.
9 And lo! Jesus met them, saying—Joy to you! And they going forward held his feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then Jesus saith unto them—Be not afraid! Go your way, bear tidings unto my brethren, that they may depart into Galilee; And there shall they themselves see me.
11 Now as they were going lo! certain of the guard went into the city and reported unto the High-priests all the things that had come to pass;
12 and being gathered together with the Elders and taking counsel sufficient pieces of silver gave they unto the soldiers,—
13 saying—Say ye, His disciples coming by night stole him while we were sleeping;
14 And if this be reported unto the governor we will persuade him, and will make you free from care.
15 And they taking the pieces of silver did as they were instructed. And this account was spread abroad among the Jews . . . until this [very] day.
16 And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain which Jesus had appointed them;
17 and seeing him they worshipped, but some doubted.
18 And Jesus coming near spake unto them, saying—All authority in heaven and on earth hath been given unto me;
19 Go ye therefore and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,—
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I myself have commanded you, And lo! I am with you all the days, until the conclusion of the age.
