An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Iames, and Salome, had bought sweete spices, that they might come and anoint him. Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning, the first day of the week they came vnto the sepulchre, at the rising of the sunne: Mark 16:3 And they said among themselues, who shall roll vs away the stone from the doore of the sepulchre? Mark 16:4 (And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away) for it was very great. Mark 16:5 And entring into the sepulchre, they sawe a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment, and they were affrighted. Mark 16:6 And hee sayth vnto them, Be not affrighted; ye seeke Iesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen, hee is not here: behold the place where they laide him. Mark 16:7 But goe your way, tell his disciples, and Peter, that hee goeth before you into Galile, there shall ye see him, as he said vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they went out quickely, and fledde from the sepulchre, for they trembled, and were amazed, neither sayd they any thing to any man, for they were afraid.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 Now when [Iesus] was risen early, the first day of the weeke, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seuen deuils. Mark 16:10 And she went and told them that had beene with him, as they mourned and wept. Mark 16:11 And they, when they had heard that he was aliue, and had beene seene of her, beleeued not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After that, he appeared in another forme vnto two of them, as they walked, and went into the countrey. Mark 16:13 And they went and tolde it vnto the residue, neither beleeued they them.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 Afterward he appeared vnto the eleuen, as they sate at meat, and vpbraided them with their vnbeliefe, and hardnesse of heart, because they beleeued not them, which had seene him after he was risen.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he said vnto them, Goe yee into all the world, and preach the Gospel to euery creature. Mark 16:16 He that beleeueth and is baptized, shalbe saued, but he that beleeueth not, shall be damned. Mark 16:17 And these signes shal follow them that beleeue, In my Name shall they cast out deuils, they shall speake with new tongues, Mark 16:18 They shall take vp serpents, and if they drinke any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sicke, and they shall recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken vnto them, he was receiued vp into heauen, and sate on the right hand of God. Mark 16:20 And they went foorth, and preached euery where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the worde with signes following. Amen.
