1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome brought spices in order to go and anoint him.
2 And very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb as the sun was rising;
3 and they kept saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the door of the tomb?"
4 But then as they looked up they saw that the stone, which was a very large one, was already rolled away;
5 and upon entering the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe.
6 They were terrified, but he said to them. "Do not be terrified! You are seeking Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified? He is risen; he is not here. See, the place where they laid him!
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, "He is going before you into Galilee, where you will see him, as he told you."
8 So they went out, and ran from the tomb, for they were trembling and amazed; and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid –
9 Now after his resurrection, early on the first day of the week he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had driven out seven demons.
10 She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
11 But they, although they heard that he was living and had been seen by her did not believe it.
12 After this he appeared in another form to two of them as they were walking on their way into the country.
13 They too went, and told the others; but they did not believe them, either.
14 Afterward he appeared to the Eleven themselves, as they were eating, and reproached them for their lack of faith, and stubborn hearts, because they disbelieved those who had seen him risen.
15 And he said to them. "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.
16 He who believes and is baptized shall be saved, but he who disbelieves shall be condemned.
17 Moreover these signs shall follow those who believe. They shall drive out demons in my name; they shall speak with new tongues in foreign languages;
18 they shall pick up serpents, and if they drink any poison it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover."
19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 But they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the message by the miracles which followed.
