An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And when the Sabbath day was past, Marie Magdalene, and Marie the mother of Iames, and Salome, bought sweete oyntments, that they might come, and anoynt him. Mark 16:2 Therefore early in the morning, the first day of the weeke, they came vnto the sepulchre, when the Sunne was nowe risen. Mark 16:3 And they saide one to another, Who shall rolle 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 a very great one) Mark 16:5 So they went into the sepulchre, and saw a yong man sitting at the right side, clothed in a long white robe: and they were sore troubled. Mark 16:6 But he said vnto them, Be not so troubled: ye seeke Iesus of Nazareth, which hath bene crucified: he is risen, he is not here: behold the place where they put him. Mark 16:7 But goe your way, and tell his disciples, and Peter, that he will goe before you into Galile: there shall ye see him, as he said vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre: for they trembled, and were amased: neither said they any thing to any man: for they were afraide.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 And when Iesus was risen againe, early the first day of the weeke, he appeared first to Marie Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seuen deuils: Mark 16:10 And shee went and tolde them that had bene with him, which mourned and wept. Mark 16:11 And when they heard that he was aliue, and had appeared to her, they beleeued it not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After that, he appeared vnto two of them in an other forme, as they walked and went into the countrey. Mark 16:13 And they went, and told it to the remnant, neither beleeued they them.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 Finally, he appeared vnto the eleuen as they sate together, and reproched them for their vnbeliefe and hardnesse of heart, because they beleeued not them which had seene him, being risen vp againe.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he saide vnto them, Goe ye into all the worlde, and preach the Gospel to euery creature. Mark 16:16 He that shall beleeue and be baptized, shalbe saued: but he that will not beleeue, shalbe damned. Mark 16:17 And these tokens shall folowe them that beleeue, In my Name they shall cast out deuils, and shall speake with newe tongues, Mark 16:18 And shall take away serpents, and if they shall drinke any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their handes on the sicke, and they shall recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 So after ye Lord had spoken vnto them, he was receiued into heauen, & sate at the right hand of God. Mark 16:20 And they went foorth, and preached euery where; the Lorde wrought with them, and confirmed the worde with signes that folowed. Amen.
