An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And when þe Saboth was past, Mary Magdalen, & Mary Iacob, & Salome, bought swete odoures, þt they myght come, & anoynt him? Mark 16:2 And early in the mornyng the fyrst daye of the Sabboth they came vnto the sepulcre, when the Sonne was rysen. Mark 16:3 And they sayd among them selues: who shall rolle vs awaye the stone from the dore of the sepulchre? Mark 16:4 And when they loked, they sawe how that the stone was rolled awaye, for it was a very greate one. Mark 16:5 And they went into þe sepulcre, and sawe a younge man syttyng on the ryghtsyde, clothed in a longe white garment, & they were afrayed. Mark 16:6 And he sayeth vnto them, be not afrayed: ye seke Iesus of Nazareth, whych was crucifyed. He is rysen, he is not here. Beholde the place where they had put him. Mark 16:7 But goo youre waye, and tell his disciples, & Peter, that he goeth before you into Galile: there shall ye se him, as he sayd vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they went oute quyckly, and fledd from the sepulcre. For they trembled & were amased. Nether sayde they eny thynge to eny man, for they were afrayed.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 When Iesus was rysen early the fyrst daye after the Sabboth he appeared fyrst to Mary Magdalen, out of whom he had cast seuen deuyls. Mark 16:10 And she went, and tolde them that were with him, as they mourned & weapte. Mark 16:11 And they, whan they herde that he was a lyue, and had appered vnto her, beleued it not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After that, appeared he vnto two of them in a straunge fygure, as they walked, & went in to the country. Mark 16:13 And they went & tolde it to the remnaunt. 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 teth their vnbelefe, and hardnes of herte: because they beleued not them whych had sene that he was rysen agayne from the deed.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he sayde vnto them: Goo ye into al the worlde, and preache the gospell to all creatures, Mark 16:16 he that beleueth & is baptised, shalbe saued. But he that beleueth not, shalbe dampned. Mark 16:17 And these tokens shall folowe them that beleue. In my name they shall cast out deuyls, they shall speake with newe tonges, Mark 16:18 they shall dryue awaye serpentes. And yf they drynke any deadly thynge, it shall not hurte them. They shall laye their handes on the sycke, & they shall recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 So then, when þe Lorde had spoken vnto them he was receaued into heauen, and is on the right hand of God. Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached euery where: the Lorde workyng with them and confyrmyng the worde with myracles folowing.
