Chapter 28Matthew

28

1 Now late in the week, as it began to dawn toward the first of the week, came Mariam :Magdalene and the other Mary to view the sepulcher. 2 And lo, there was a great earthquake; for the Lord’s angel descended from heaven, and came and rolled away the stone, and sat upon it. 3 And his :appearance was as lightning, and his :raiment white as snow: 4 and for :fear of him the watchers did quake, and became as dead. 5 And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear not YE; for I know that ye seek Jesus the crucified one. 6 He is not here; for he is risen, even as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his :disciples that He is risen from the dead; and lo, he goeth before you into :Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. 8 And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to report to his :disciples. 9 And lo, Jesus met them, saying, †Hail! And they came and took hold of his :feet, and worshiped him. 10 Then saith :Jesus to them, Fear not: go, report to my :brethren that they depart into :Galilee, and there shall they see me. 11 Now while they were going, lo, some of the guard came into the city, and reported to the chief priests all the things that were come to pass. 12 And when they were gathered with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave enough silver-pieces to the soldiers, 13 saying, Say [that], His :disciples came by night, and stole him while we slept. 14 And if this come to a hearing before the governor, we will persuade him, and rid you of care. 15 And THEY took the money, and did as they were taught: and this :saying was spread abroad among the Jews, until this very :day. 16 But the eleven disciples went to :Galilee, unto the mountain where :Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 And :Jesus came to them and spake to them, saying, All authority hath been given me in heaven and on :earth. 19 Go therefore, and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: 20 teaching them to keep all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you all the days till the consummation of the age.
