||Resurrection - GNT|
(Good News Translation)
|Matthew 28||1||After the Sabbath, as Sunday morning was dawning,|
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
|Mark 16||3a||On the way they said to one another,|
"Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?"
|Matthew 28||2||Suddenly there was a violent earthquake;|
an angel of the Lord came down from heaven,
rolled the stone away, and sat on it.
|3||His appearance was like lightning,|
and his clothes were white as snow.
|4||The guards were so afraid that they trembled|
and became like dead men.
|5||The angel spoke to the women.|
"You must not be afraid," he said.
"I know you are looking for Jesus, Who was crucified.
|6||He is not here; He has been raised, just as He said.|
Come here and see the place where He was lying.
|7a||Go 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!'"
|8||So they left the tomb in a hurry, afraid and yet filled with joy,|
and ran to tell His disciples.
|9||Suddenly 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."
|16||The eleven disciples went to the hill in Galilee|
where Jesus had told them to go.
|17a||When they saw Him, they worshiped Him.|
|18||Jesus drew near and said,|
"I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
|19||Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them My disciples:|
baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
|20||and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.|
And I will be with you always, to the end of the age."
