Matthew 28:1–10

The Resurrection

28:1 Now after the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 28:2 Suddenly there was a severe earthquake, for an angel of the Lord1 descending from heaven came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. 28:3 His2 appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 28:4 The3 guards were shaken and became like dead men because they were so afraid of him. 28:5 But the angel said4 to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know5 that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.6 28:6 He is not here, for he has been raised,7 just as he said. Come and see the place where he8 was lying. 28:7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead. He9 is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there.’ Listen, I have told you!” 28:8 So10 they left the tomb quickly, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 28:9 But11 Jesus met them, saying, “Greetings!” They12 came to him, held on to his feet and worshiped him. 28:10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will see me there.”
