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.
9 [1Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to aMary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons. 10 aShe went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. 11 When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, athey refused to believe it.
12 After that, aHe appeared in a different form bto two of them while they were walking along on their way to the country. 13 They went away and reported it to the others, but they adid not believe them either.
14 Afterward aHe appeared bto the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their cunbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “aGo into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 aHe who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 These 1signs will accompany those who have believed: ain My name they will cast out demons, they will bspeak with new tongues; 18 they will apick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will blay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had aspoken to them, He bwas received up into heaven and csat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the 1signs that followed.]
[2And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
