An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And whan the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, & Mary Iames, and Salome, bought spyces, yt they might come, & anoynte hi. Mark 16:2 And they came to the sepulcre vpo a daye of ye Sabbathes very early, wha ye Sonne arose, Mark 16:3 & sayde one to another: Who shal rolle vs ye stone fro ye dore of the sepulcre? Mark 16:4 And whan they loked, they sawe, that the stone was rolled awaye: for it was a very greate one. Mark 16:5 And they wente in to the sepulcre, and on the right hande they sawe a yonge man syttinge, which had a longe whyte garmet vpon him, and they were abasshed. Mark 16:6 But he sayde vnto the: Be not ye afrayed, ye seke Iesus of Nazareth which was crucified: he is rysen, he is not here. Beholde, ye place, where they layed him. Mark 16:7 But go ye youre waye, and tell his disciples and Peter, that he wil go before you in to Galile, there shal ye se him as he sayde vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they wente forth in all the haist, and fled from the sepulcre: for there was a tremblynge & feare come vpon them, nether sayde they eny thinge to eny man, for they were afrayed.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 But Iesus, whan he was rysen vp early vpo the first daye of the Sabbathes, he appeared first vnto Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast out seuen deuels. Mark 16:10 And she wete and tolde the that were with him, as they mourned and wepte. Mark 16:11 And whan they herde that he lyued, and had appeared vnto her, they beleued it not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After warde as two of the were walkynge, he shewed himself vnder another figure, whan they were goynge vpon the felde. Mark 16:13 And they wente, and tolde the other: these they beleued not also.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 At the last, as the eleuen sat at the table, he shewed himself vnto them, and rebuked their vnbeleue, and ye hardnesse of their hert, because they beleued not the which had sene him rysen.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he sayde vnto them: Go ye youre waye in to all the worlde, and preach the gospell vnto all creatures. Mark 16:16 Who so beleueth and is baptysed, shalbe saued: but who so beleueth not, shalbe damned. Mark 16:17 As for the tokens, which shal folowe the that beleue, these are they: In my name shal they cast out deuyls: Speake with new tunges: Mark 16:18 Dryue awaye serpetes: And yf they drynke eny deedly thinge, it shal not hurte them: They shal laye their handes vpo the sicke, and they shal recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 And the LORDE, after that he had spoken vnto them, was taken vp in to heauen, and sytteth at the right hade of God. Mark 16:20 And they wente out, and preached euery where. And the LORDE wrought with them, and confirmed the worde with tokens folowynge.
