After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel
of the Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back
the stone, and sat upon it. 3 His appearance was like lightning
and his clothing was white as snow. 4 The guards were shaken
with fear of him and became like dead men. 5 Then the angel
said to the women in reply, "Do not be afraid! I know
that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. 6 He is not here,
for he has been raised just as he said. Come and see the
place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples,
'He has been raised from the dead, and he is going before
you to Galilee; there you will see him.' Behold, I have
told you." 8 Then they went away quickly from the tomb,
fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce this to his disciples.
9 And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them.
They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell
my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother
of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go
and anoint him. 2 Very early when the sun had risen, on
the first day of the week, they came to the tomb. 3 They
were saying to one another, "Who will roll back the
stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?" 4 When
they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled
back; it was very large. 5 On entering
the tomb they saw
a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white
robe, and they were utterly amazed. 6 He said to them, "Do
not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified.
He has been raised; he is not here. Behold the place where
they laid him. 7 But go and tell his disciples and Peter,
'He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him,
as he told you.'" 8 Then they went out and fled from
the tomb, seized with trembling and bewilderment. They said
nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. 9 When he had risen,
early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to
Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
10 She went and told his companions who were mourning and
weeping. 11 When they heard that he was alive and had been
seen by her, they did not believe. 12 After this he appeared
in another form to two of them walking along on their way
to the country. 13 They returned and told the others; but
they did not believe them either.
But at daybreak on the first day of the week they took the
spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found
the stone rolled away from the tomb; 3 but when they entered,
they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they
were puzzling over this, behold, two men in dazzling garments
appeared to them. 5 They were terrified and bowed their
faces to the ground. They said to them, "Why do you
seek the living one among the dead? 6 He is not here, but
he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he
was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be handed
over to sinners and be crucified, and rise on the third
day." 8 And they remembered his words. 9 Then they
returned from the tomb and announced all these things to
the eleven and to all the others. 10 The women were Mary
Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James; the others
who accompanied them also told this to the apostles, 11
but their story seemed like nonsense and they did not believe
them. 12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb, bent down,
and saw the burial cloths alone; then he went home amazed
at what had happened.
On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the
tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and
saw the stone removed from the tomb. 2 So she ran and went
to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved,
and told them, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and we don't know where they put him." 3 So Peter and
the other disciple went out and came to the tomb. 4 They
both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and
arrived at the tomb first; 5 he bent down and saw the burial
cloths there, but did not go in. 6 When Simon Peter arrived
after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths
there, 7 and the cloth that had covered his head, not with
the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place. 8 Then
the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived
at the tomb first, and he saw and believed. 9 For they did
not yet understand the scripture that he had to rise from
the dead. 10 Then the disciples returned home. 11 But Mary
stayed outside the tomb weeping. And as she wept, she bent
over into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white sitting
there, one at the head and one at the feet where the body
of Jesus had been. 13 And they said to her, "Woman,
why are you weeping?" She said to them, "They
have taken my Lord, and I don't know where they laid him."
14 When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus
there, but did not know it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her,
"Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?"
She thought it was the gardener and said to him, "Sir,
if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and
I will take him." 16 Jesus said to her, "Mary!"
She turned and said to him in Hebrew, "Rabbouni,"
which means Teacher. 17 Jesus said to her, "Stop holding
on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But
go to my brothers and tell them, 'I am going to my Father
and your Father, to my God and your God.'" 18 Mary
of Magdala went and announced to the disciples, "I
have seen the Lord," and what he told her.
