1 Now (*) in (1) the (a) (♣) end of the (♠) Sabbath, when the first day of the week (b) began to dawn, Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, came to see the sepulcher,
(*) Mark 16:5; John 20:11 .
(1) Christ having put death to flight in the sepulcher,
riseth by his own power, as straightway the Angel
(a) At the going out of the Sabbath, that is, about day break after the Roman account, which reckon the natural day, from the sun rising to the next sun rising; and not as the Hebrews, which count from evening to evening.
(♣) Or, evening.
(♠) Here the Evangelist reckoneth the natural day from the
sun rising to his rising again, and not as the Jews did,
which began to count at the first hour after the sunset
(b) When the morning after the first day of the Sabbath began to dawn; and that first day is the same, which we now call Sunday or the Lord's day.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the (*) Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
(*) There were two; but it is a manner of speech to use the singular number for the plural, and contrary.
3 And his (c) countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
(c) The beams of his eyes, and by the figure of Synecdoche, for the countenance.
4 And for fear of him, the keepers were astonied, and became as dead men.
5 But the Angel answered, and said to the women, Fear (d) ye not; for I know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified;
(d) The word (Ye) is spoken with force to confirm the women, now that the soldiers were afraid.
6 He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. 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 goeth before you into Galilee, there ye shall see him; (*) lo, I have told you.
(*) He assureth them that it is so.
8 So they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great (*) joy, and did run to bring his disciples word.
(*) Their joy was mixed with fear, both because of the Angelís presence and also for that they were not assured.
9 (2) And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus also met them, saying, God save you. And they came, and took him by the feet, and worshipped him.
(2) Christ appeareth himself after his resurrection, and sending the women to his disciples, sheweth that he hath not forgotten them.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid. Go, and tell my brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
11 ∂ (3) Now when they were gone, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the high Priests all the things that were done.
(3) The more the sun shineth, the more are the wicked blinded.
12 And they gathered them together with the Elders, and took counsel, and gave large money unto the soldiers,
13 Saying, Say, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
14 And if the governor (e) hear of this, we will persuade him, and save you harmless.
(e) For it was to be feared, that it would be brought to the governor's ears.
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught; and this (*) saying is noised among the Jews unto this day.
(*) An extreme vengeance of God, whereby the Jews were the more hardened, so that they cannot feel the profit of his death and resurrection.
16 ∂ (4) Then the eleven disciples went into Galilee, into a mountain, where Jesus had appointed them.
(4) Christ appeareth also to his Disciples, whom he maketh Apostles.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came, and spake unto them, saying, (*) All power is given unto me, in heaven, and in earth.
(*) Matthew 11:27; John 17:2; Hebrews 1:2 .
19 (*) (5) Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them (f) in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the holy Ghost,
(*) Mark 16:15 .
(5) The sum of the Apostleship is, the publishing of the
doctrine received from Christ throughout all the world, and
the ministering of the Sacraments; the efficacy of which
things hangeth not of the ministers, but of the Lord.
(f) Calling upon the name of the Father, the Son, and the holy Ghost.
20 Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I (♣) have commanded you; and lo, (*) I am with you (g) alway, until the (♠) end of the world, Amen.
(♣) Men may not teach their own doctrine, but whatsoever Christ hath taught them: for he reserveth this authority to himself, to be the only teacher and author of the doctrine.
(*) John 14:16 .
(g) Forever; and this place is meant of the manner of the presence of his Spirit, by means of whereof he maketh us partakers both of himself and of all his benefits, but is absent from us in body.
(♠) By power, grace and virtue of the holy Ghost.
