Resurrection - GNT
(Good News Translation)
Matthew 281After the Sabbath, as Sunday morning was dawning,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
Mark 163aOn the way they said to one another,
"Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?"
Matthew 282Suddenly there was a violent earthquake;
an angel of the Lord came down from heaven,
rolled the stone away, and sat on it.
3His appearance was like lightning,
and his clothes were white as snow.
4The guards were so afraid that they trembled
and became like dead men.
5The angel spoke to the women.
"You must not be afraid," he said.
"I know you are looking for Jesus, Who was crucified.
6He is not here; He has been raised, just as He said.
Come here and see the place where He was lying.
7aGo quickly now, and tell His disciples,
'He has been raised from death,
and now He is going to Galilee ahead of you;
there you will see Him!'"
8So they left the tomb in a hurry, afraid and yet filled with joy,
and ran to tell His disciples.
9Suddenly Jesus met them and said, "Peace be with you."
They came up to Him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped Him.
10"Do not be afraid," Jesus said to them.
"Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee,
and there they will see me."
16The eleven disciples went to the hill in Galilee
where Jesus had told them to go.
17aWhen they saw Him, they worshiped Him.
18Jesus drew near and said,
"I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
19Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them My disciples:
baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
20and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And I will be with you always, to the end of the age."
