Marcus: Chapter 16

Shabbat over, Marya of Magdala, Marya the [mother] of Yaakov, and Salome buy aromatic herbs, to come and oil him. Very early on the first [day] of the week, as the sun is rising, they come to the mausoleum. They say to themselves — Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?

Looking up, they observe that the stone has rolled away, for it is very large. Going in to the mausoleum, they see a youth sitting on the right, wrapped in a white robe, and they are bewildered.

But he says to them — Do not be bewildered! You seek Yoshua, the Nazarenos, who was impaled. He has risen up; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his students and Petros that he is leading you to Galilaia; there you will see him, as he said to you.

Going out they flee from the tomb, trembling and astonished. And they say nothing to anyone, for they are afraid.
