1 Now a after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene b and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for c an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone 1 from the door, and sat on it. 3 d His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like e dead men. 5 But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 "He is not here; for He is risen, f as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 "And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed g He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you." 8 So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. 9 And 2 as they went to tell His disciples, behold, h Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell i My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
