28:1 But after the sabbath, as it began to dawn into the first of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the tomb.
2 And lo, there had been a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord having descended from heaven and come, had rolled away the stone and had sat upon it.
3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake and became as dead men.
5 But the angel answered and said to the women: Fear not you; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified;
6 he is not here; for he has risen as he said: Come, see the place where he lay.
7 And go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead; and behold, he goes before you into Galilee: there you shall see him. Lo, I have told you.
8 And going away quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, they ran to bring his disciples word.
9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying: Hail. And they came and laid hold of his feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then says Jesus to them: Fear not: go, tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
11 But as they were going, be hold, some of the guard came into the city and told the chief priests all that had been done.
12 And having come together with the elders, and taken counsel, they gave much money to the soldiers,
13 saying: Say that his disciples came by night and stole him while we slept.
14 And if this be heard before the governor, we will persuade him and make you secure.
15 And they took the money and did as they were taught; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews to this day.
16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to a mountain where Jesus had appointed them;
17 and when they saw him they worshipped, but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying : All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
20 teaching them to observe all things whatever I commanded you. And lo, I am with you, all the days, to the conclusion of the age.
