An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And whe the Sabboth day was past, Marie Magdalen and Marie [the mother] of Iames, & Salome, bought sweete smellynge oyntmentes, that they myght come and annoynt hym. Mark 16:2 And early in the mornyng, the first day of the Sabbothes, they came vnto the sepulchre, when the sunne was rysen: Mark 16:3 And they sayde among them selues, who shall roule vs away the stone from the doore of the sepulchre? Mark 16:4 And when they loked, they sawe how that the stone was rouled awaye, for it was a very great one. Mark 16:5 And they went into the sepulchre, and sawe a young man syttyng on the ryght syde, clothed in a long whyte garment, and they were amased. Mark 16:6 And he sayth vnto them, be not amased: ye seke Iesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: He is risen, he is not here, beholde the place where they had put hym. Mark 16:7 But go your way, & tell his disciples, and Peter, that he goeth before you into Galilee, there shall ye see hym, as he saide vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre, for they trembled & were amased: neither sayde they any thing to any man, for they were afraide.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 When [Iesus] was rysen early, the first [day] after the Sabboth, he appeared firste to Marie Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seuen deuils. Mark 16:10 And she went & tolde them that were with hym, as they mourned & wept. Mark 16:11 And they, when they hearde that he was alyue, and had ben seene of her, beleued it not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After that, appeared he vnto two of them in another fourme, as they walked and went into the countrey. Mark 16:13 And they went and tolde it vnto the residue: and [they] beleued not these also.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 Afterwarde, he appeared vnto the eleuen, as they sate at meate, and cast in their teeth their vnbeliefe and hardnes of heart, because they beleued not them whiche had seene that he was rysen agayne from the dead.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he sayde vnto them: Go ye into all the worlde, and preache the Gospell to all creatures. Mark 16:16 He that beleueth, and is baptized, shalbe saued: But he that beleueth not, shalbe dampned. Mark 16:17 And these tokens shall folowe them that beleue. In my name they shal cast out deuils, they shall speake with newe tongues, Mark 16:18 They shall driue away serpentes: and yf they drinke any deadly thyng, it shall not hurte them: They shall lay their handes on the sicke, & they shal recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 So then, when the Lorde had spoken vnto them, he was receaued into heauen, and sate hym downe on the ryght hande of God. Mark 16:20 And they went foorth, and preached euerywhere, the Lorde workyng with them, and confirmyng the worde with signes folowyng.
