The Resurrection

1 aWhen the Sabbath was over, bMary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of 1James, and Salome, cbought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, they * came to the tomb when the sun had risen. 3 They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away athe stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 Looking up, they * saw that the stone had been rolled away, 1although it was extremely large. 5 aEntering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they bwere amazed. 6 And he * said to them, “aDo not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the bNazarene, who has been crucified. cHe has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him. 7 “But go, tell His disciples and Peter, ‘aHe is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.’ ” 8 They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
