1 Christs resurrection is declared by an Angel, to the women. 9 He himselfe appeareth vnto them. 11 The high Priests giue the souldiers money to say that he was stollen out of his sepulchre. 16 Christ appeareth to his disciples, 19 and sendeth them to baptize and teach all Nations.
In the ende of the Sabbath, as it began to dawne towards the first day of the weeke, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre.1
And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the Angel of the Lord descended from heauen, and came and rolled backe the stone from the doore, and sate vpon it.2
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snowe.
And for feare of him, the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the Angel answered, and said vnto the women, Feare not ye: for I know that ye seeke Iesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as hee said: Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And goe quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead. And behold, hee goeth before you into Galilee, there shall ye see him: loe, I haue told you.
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre, with feare and great ioy, and did run to bring his disciples word.
¶ And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Iesus met them, saying, All haile. And they came, and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
Then said Iesus vnto them, Be not afraid: Goe tell my brethren that they goe into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
¶ Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the citie, and shewed vnto the chiefe Priests all the things that were done.
And when they were assembled with the Elders, and had taken counsell, they gaue large money vnto the souldiers,
Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
And if this come to the gouernours eares, wee will perswade him, and secure you.
So they tooke the money, and did as they were taught. And this saying is commonly reported among the Iewes vntill this day.
¶ Then the eleuen disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountaine where Iesus had appointed them.
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
And Iesus came, and spake vnto them, saying, All power is giuen vnto me in heauen and in earth.
¶ Goe ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Sonne, and of the holy Ghost:19
Teaching them to obserue all things, whatsoeuer I haue commanded you: and loe, I am with you alway, euen vnto the end of the world. Amen.
