Chapter 28

Matt. 28:1 In the close of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the tomb.

Matt. 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.

Matt. 28:3 His countenance was like lightning and his clothing white as snow:

Matt. 28:4 for fear of him the guards did shake and became as dead men.

Matt. 28:5 And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear not: for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified.

Matt. 28:6 He is not here: for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Matt. 28:7 Now go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and behold, He goes before you into Galilee; there will you see Him: look, I have told you.

Matt. 28:8 Then they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy; and ran to bring His disciple’s word.

Matt. 28:9 As they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, and said, rejoice! And they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.

Matt. 28:10 Then said Jesus to them, be not afraid: go tell My brothers that they go into Galilee, and there will they see Me.

Matt. 28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city, and showed to the chief priests all the things that were done.

Matt. 28:12 When they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money to the soldiers,

Matt. 28:13 and said, say you, His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept.

Matt. 28:14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and keep you safe.

Matt. 28:15 So they received the money and did as they were instructed: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Matt. 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

Matt. 28:17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him: but some doubted.

Matt. 28:18 So Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, all authority is given to Me in heaven and in earth.

Matt. 28:19 Therefore go, and disciple all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:

Matt. 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you: and look, I am with you all the time, even until the completion of this Old Covenant Age.
