Mark 16

English Standard Version (ESV)

The Resurrection

16 When the Sabbath was past,  Mary Magdalene,  Mary the mother of James, and  Salome  bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. 3 And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away  the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back— it was very large. 5 And  entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side,  dressed in  a white robe, and  they were alarmed. 6 And he said to them,  “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that  he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him,  just as he told you.” 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

9 [[Now when he rose early on the first day of the week,  he appeared first to  Mary Magdalene,  from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with him,  as they  mourned and wept. 11 But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they  would not believe it.

Jesus Appears to Two Disciples

12 After these things  he appeared in  another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. 13 And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them.

The Great Commission

14 Afterward  he appeared  to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their  unbelief and  hardness of heart, because  they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. 15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and  proclaim the gospel to  the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is  baptized  will be saved, but  whoever  does not believe will be condemned. 17 And  these signs will accompany those who believe:  in my name they will cast out demons;  they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them;  they will lay their hands  on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then the Lord Jesus,  after he had spoken to them,  was taken up into heaven and  sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while  the Lord worked with them and confirmed  the message  by accompanying signs.
