28 After the Sabbath,z as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to view the tomb. 2 There was a violent earthquake, because an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and approached the tomb. He rolled back the stone and was sitting on it.a 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow.b 4 The guards were so shaken by fear of him that they became like dead men.
5 The angel told the women, “Don’t be afraid, because I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.c 6 He is not here. For he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.d 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples,e ‘He has risen from the dead and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see him there.’ Listen, I have told you.”f
8 So, departing quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, they ran to tell his disciples the news. 9 Just thenA Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” They came up, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him.g 10 Then Jesus told them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.”h
11 As they were on their way, some of the guards came into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 After the priestsB had assembled with the elders and agreed on a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money 13 and told them, “Say this, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him while we were sleeping.’ 14 If this reaches the governor’s ears, we will deal withC him and keep you out of trouble.”i 15 They took the money and did as they were instructed, and this story has been spread among Jewish people to this day.j
16 The eleven disciples traveled to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had directed them.k 17 When they saw him, they worshiped,D but some doubted. 18 Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.l 19 Go, therefore, and make disciplesm ofE all nations,n baptizingo them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember,F I am with you always,G to the end of the age.”p
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
