risen from the dead. So the last error shall be worse than the first. 65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch : go your way, make it as sure as ye can. 66 So they went and made the sepulcre sure, -sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
CHAP. XXVIII. Christ's Resurrection, In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Mag. dalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre. 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. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow : 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5 And the angel answered and said unto the-women, Fear not ye : for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here : for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his disc ciples that he is risen from the dead ; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee : there shall ye see him, lo, I have told you. : 8 And they departed quickly from the sepul. chre with fear and great joy ; and did run to bring his disciples word. 9 And 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 said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid : go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. 11 Now when they where going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. 12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13 Saying, Say ye, his disciples came by night, and stole him away, while we slept. 14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught : and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 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. 19 Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptiza ing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost : 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
FROM SAINT MARK.
Chap. I. John Baptist a forerunner of Christ.
The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; 2 As it is written in the pro. phets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 9. And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized
of John in Jordan. 10 And straight way coming, up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the spirit driveth him in, to the wilderness. 13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan ; and was with the wild beasts ; and the angels ministered unto him. 14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee preaching the gos. pel of the kingdom of God. 21 And straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22 And they were astonished at bis doctrine : for he taught them as one that had au« thority, and not as the scribes. i
23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit ; and he cried out, 24 Saye ing, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. 28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
32 And at even, when the sun did set, they ! brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. 33 And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34 And
he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the · devils to speak, because they knew him. 35 And
in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. · 38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils. 40 And there came a leper to him, be. seeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed
from him, and he was cleansed. 43 And he 8 straightly charged him, 44 And saith unto him, * Go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer
for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded for a testimony unto them.
Chap. II. III. Christ healeth the Sick of the Palsy. - 3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick
of the palsy, which was borne of four. 4. And when
they could not come nigh unto him for the press, El they uncovered the roof where he was : and when 18 they had broken it up, they let down the bed where
in the sick of the palsy lay. 5 When Jesus saw
their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, Con thy sins be forgiven thee. 6 But there were cer
tain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in El their hearts, 7 Why doth this man thus speak
blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only ? te 8 And immediately, when Jesus perceived in his
spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? 9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed and walk? 10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy) 11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house, 12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
1 And he entered again into the synagogue ; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. 2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. 3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. . 4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill ? But they held their peace. 5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. 23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that king. dom cannot stand. 31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. 32 And the multitude sat about him; and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
