An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And when þe Saboth was past. Mary Magdalen, and Mary Iacobi, and Salome, boughte odours, þt they myghte come & anoynt hym. Mark 16:2 And very early in the morninge the next daye after the Saboth daye they came to the sepulchre, when þe sunne was rysen. Mark 16:3 And they sayed one to another: who shal rolle vs awaye the stone from the dore of the sepulchre? Mark 16:4 And when they loked, they sawe howe the stone was rolled awaye: for it was a verye great one. Mark 16:5 And they wente into the sepulchre, and sawe a yonge man syttyng on the ryght syde, clothed in a long white garment, & they were abashed. Mark 16:6 And he sayed vnto them, be not afrayed: ye seke Iesus of Nazareth whiche was crucifyed. He is rysen, he is not here. Beholde the place where they put hym. Mark 16:7 But go your waye, and tell hys discyples and namelye Peter: He wil go before you into Galile, there shal ye se him as he sayde vnto you. Mark 16:8 And they wente oute quickly, and fled from the sepulchre. For they trembled and were amased. Neyther sayed they anye thynge to anye man, for they were afrayed.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 When Iesus was rysen the morowe after the Saboth daye, he appeared fyrst to Marye Magdalen, out of whome he cast seuen deuils. Mark 16:10 And she went and tolde them that were wyth hym as they mourned & wepte. Mark 16:11 And when they heard that he was alyue, and he had appeared to her, they beleued it not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 After that he appered to two of them in a straunge fygure, as they walked and went into the countre. Mark 16:13 And they wente and tolde it to the remnaunt. And they beleued them neyther.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 After that he appeared vnto the eleuen, as they sate at meat, and caste in theyr tethe theyr vnbelese and hardnes of hert: because they beleued not them which had sene hym after hys resurreccyon.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he sayed to them: Go ye into all the worlde, and preache the glad tydynges to all creatures, Mark 16:16 he that beleueth & is baptised, shall be saued. But he that beleueth not, shalbe damned. Mark 16:17 And these sygnes shall folowe them that beleue. In my name they shall caste oute deuils, & shall speake with newe tonges, Mark 16:18 & shall kyll serpentes, and yf they drinke any deadly thynge, it shall not hurte them. They shal lay theyr handes on the sycke, and they shal recouer.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 So then when the Lorde had spoken vnto them: he was receyued into heauen, and is set doune on the ryght hande of God. Mark 16:20 And they wente forth and preached euerye where. And the Lorde wrought with them, and confyrmed the word wt miracles that folowed.
