Matthew 28:1–20

The Empty Tomb

Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–11

28 Now aafter the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene band the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for can angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone 1from the door, and sat on it. dHis countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like edead men.

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, fas He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed gHe is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”

So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

The Appearance of Jesus to the Women

And 2as they went to tell His disciples, behold, hJesus met them, saying, Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid. Go and tell iMy brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”

The Bribery of the Soldiers

11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened. 12 When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying, “Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’ 14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

The Appearance of Jesus to the Disciples

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain jwhich Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some kdoubted.

The Great Commission

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, lAll authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 mGo 3therefore and nmake disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 oteaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am pwith you always, even to the end of the age.” 4Amen.
