Matthew 28


Mat 28:1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.
Mat 28:2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.
Mat 28:3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
Mat 28:4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.
Mat 28:5 The angel said to the women," Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
Mat 28:6 He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
Mat 28:7 Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."
Mat 28:8 And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.
Mat 28:9 And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.
Mat 28:10 Then Jesus said to them," Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they will see Me."
Mat 28:11 Now while they were on their way, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened.
Mat 28:12 And when they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
Mat 28:13 and said," You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep. '
Mat 28:14 And if this should come to the governor's ears, we will win him over and keep you out of trouble."
Mat 28:15 And they took the money and did as they had been instructed; and this story was widely spread among the Jews, and is to this day.
Mat 28:16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.
Mat 28:17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful.
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying," All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Mat 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
Mat 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
