|Matthew 28:5-14 |
5 And the angel said to the women, "Fear not, for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here. For he is risen, as he said he would rise. Come, see the place where the Lord was laid.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and behold, he goes before you into Galilee. You shall see him there. Behold, I have told you."
8 So the women departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to take his disciples word of the events.
9 As they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "All hail." And they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him.
10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go into Galilee, and there they shall see me."
11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the guards from the tomb went into the city, and told the chief priests all the things that had occurred.
12 And when the priests had assembled with the elders and had discussed it, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
13 Saying, "Say that His disciples came by night, and stole him away while you were sleeping.
14 And if the governor hears of this, we will explain this to him to keep you safe."
