Christ's resurrection is declared by an angel to the women.
Matthew 28:1 And, late in the week, when it was on the point of dawning into the first of the week, came Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, to view the sepulchre. Matthew 28:2 And lo! a great commotion occurred,for, a messenger of the Lord, descending out of heaven, and coming near, had rolled away the stone, and was sitting upon it. Matthew 28:3 Now his appearance, was, as lightning, and, his clothing, white as snow; Matthew 28:4 and, for fear of him, they who were keeping watch were thrown into a commotion, and became as dead men. Matthew 28:5 But the messenger, answering, said unto the womenBe not, ye, afraid! For I know that, Jesus the crucified, ye are seeking: Matthew 28:6 He is not here, for he hath arisen, as he said. Come! see the place where he lay; Matthew 28:7 And, quickly going, tell his disciplesHe hath arisen from the dead, and lo! he is going before you into Galilee;There, shall ye yourselves see him: Lo! I have told you. Matthew 28:8 And, departing quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, they ran to bring tidings unto his disciples.
He himself appeareth unto them.
Matthew 28:9 And lo! Jesus, met them, sayingJoy to you! And, they, going forward, held his feet, and worshipped him. Matthew 28:10 Then, Jesus saith unto themBe not afraid! Go your way, bear tidings unto my brethren, that they may depart into Galilee; and, there, shall they themselves see me.
The chief priests give the soldiers money to say that he was stolen out of his sepulchre.
Matthew 28:11 Now as they were, going, lo! certain of the guard, went into the city and reported unto the High-priests all the things that had come to pass; Matthew 28:12 and, being gathered together with the Elders and taking counsel, sufficient pieces of silver, gave they unto the soldiers, Matthew 28:13 sayingSay ye, His disciples, coming, by night, stole him, while we were sleeping; Matthew 28:14 And, if this be reported unto the governor, we, will persuade him, and will make, you, free from care. Matthew 28:15 And, they, taking the pieces of silver, did as they were instructed. And this account was spread abroad among the Jews . . . until this [very] day.
Christ appeareth to his disciples,
Matthew 28:16 And, the eleven disciples, went into Galilee, unto the mountain which, Jesus, had appointed them; Matthew 28:17 and, seeing him, they worshipped, but, some, doubted. Matthew 28:18 And Jesus, coming near, spake unto them, sayingAll authority, in heaven and on earth, hath been given unto me;
and sendeth them to baptize and teach all nations.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye, therefore, and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I myself have commanded you, And lo! I, am, with you, all the days, until the conclusion of the age.
