La Bible du Semeur

Marc 16

Jésus est ressuscité!

1Quand le sabbat fut passé, Marie de Magdala, Marie mère de Jacques, et Salomé achetèrent des huiles aromatiques pour aller embaumer le corps de Jésus. Il était encore très tôt, le dimanche matin, lorsqu’elles arrivèrent au tombeau. Le soleil se levait. En chemin, elles s’étaient demandé les unes aux autres: Qui nous roulera la pierre qui ferme l’entrée du tombeau?

Or, en levant les yeux, elles s’aperçurent que la pierre avait été roulée sur le côté, et c’était un bloc énorme.

Elles pénétrèrent dans le caveau et virent, assis du côté droit, un jeune homme vêtu d’une robe blanche. Elles furent saisies de frayeur.

Mais le jeune homme leur dit: N’ayez pas peur! Vous cherchez Jésus de Nazareth, celui qui a été crucifié? Il est ressuscité, il n’est plus ici. Voyez l’endroit où on l’avait déposé. Et maintenant, allez annoncer à ses disciples, et aussi à Pierre, qu’il vous précède en Galilée; c’est là que vous le verrez, comme il vous l’a dit.

Elles se précipitèrent hors du tombeau et s’enfuirent, toutes tremblantes et bouleversées. Elles ne dirent rien à personne, tant elles étaient effrayées.

Jésus apparaît aux disciples

[Jésus, étant ressuscité le dimanche matin, apparut d’abord à Marie de Magdala dont il avait chassé sept démons. 10 Celle-ci alla porter la nouvelle à ceux qui avaient accompagné Jésus: ils étaient plongés dans la tristesse et en larmes. 11 Mais eux, en l’entendant dire qu’il était vivant et qu’il lui était apparu, ne la crurent pas.

12 Après cela, alors que deux d’entre eux faisaient route pour se rendre à la campagne, il leur apparut sous un autre aspect. 13 Ils revinrent à Jérusalem et annoncèrent la nouvelle aux autres; mais ils ne les crurent pas eux non plus.

14 Plus tard, il se montra aux Onze pendant qu’ils étaient à table; il leur reprocha leur incrédulité et leur aveuglement parce qu’ils n’avaient pas cru ceux qui l’avaient vu ressuscité. 15 Et il leur dit: Allez dans le monde entier, proclamez l’Evangile à tous les hommes. 16 Celui qui croira et sera baptisé sera sauvé, mais celui qui ne croira pas sera condamné. 17 Voici les signes miraculeux qui accompagneront ceux qui auront cru: en mon nom, ils chasseront des démons, ils parleront des langues nouvelles, 18 ils saisiront des serpents venimeux, ou s’il leur arrive de boire un poison mortel, cela ne leur causera aucun mal. Ils imposeront les mains à des malades et ceux-ci seront guéris.

Jésus enlevé au ciel

19 Après leur avoir ainsi parlé, le Seigneur Jésus fut enlevé au ciel et s’assit à la droite de Dieu. 20 Quant à eux, ils s’en allèrent proclamer la Parole de Dieu en tout lieu. Le Seigneur travaillait avec eux et confirmait leur prédication par les signes miraculeux qui l’accompagnaient[a].]

Notas al pie

  1. 16.20 Plusieurs manuscrits, et des meilleurs, ne contiennent pas les v. 9-20. Certains ont une version plus courte de la fin de l’évangile: Mais elles firent aux compagnons de Pierre un bref récit de tout ce qui leur avait été annoncé. Ensuite Jésus lui-même fit porter par eux, de l’Orient à l’Occident, le message sacré et incorruptible du salut éternel.

New Living Translation

Mark 16

The Resurrection

1Saturday evening, when the Sabbath ended, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went out and purchased burial spices so they could anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on Sunday morning,[a] just at sunrise, they went to the tomb. On the way they were asking each other, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” But as they arrived, they looked up and saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled aside.

When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a white robe sitting on the right side. The women were shocked, but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,[b] who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. Now go and tell his disciples, including Peter, that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you before he died.”

The women fled from the tomb, trembling and bewildered, and they said nothing to anyone because they were too frightened.[c]


[The most ancient manuscripts of Mark conclude with verse 16:8. Later manuscripts add one or both of the following endings.]

[Shorter Ending of Mark]

Then they briefly reported all this to Peter and his companions. Afterward Jesus himself sent them out from east to west with the sacred and unfailing message of salvation that gives eternal life. Amen.

[Longer Ending of Mark]

After Jesus rose from the dead early on Sunday morning, the first person who saw him was Mary Magdalene, the woman from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 She went to the disciples, who were grieving and weeping, and told them what had happened. 11 But when she told them that Jesus was alive and she had seen him, they didn’t believe her.

12 Afterward he appeared in a different form to two of his followers who were walking from Jerusalem into the country. 13 They rushed back to tell the others, but no one believed them.

14 Still later he appeared to the eleven disciples as they were eating together. He rebuked them for their stubborn unbelief because they refused to believe those who had seen him after he had been raised from the dead.[d]

15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. 16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. 17 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.[e] 18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”

19 When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. 20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.

Notas al pie

  1. 16:2 Greek on the first day of the week; also in 16:9.
  2. 16:6 Or Jesus the Nazarene.
  3. 16:8 The most reliable early manuscripts of the Gospel of Mark end at verse 8. Other manuscripts include various endings to the Gospel. A few include both the “shorter ending” and the “longer ending.” The majority of manuscripts include the “longer ending” immediately after verse 8.
  4. 16:14 Some early manuscripts add: And they excused themselves, saying, “This age of lawlessness and unbelief is under Satan, who does not permit God’s truth and power to conquer the evil [unclean] spirits. Therefore, reveal your justice now.” This is what they said to Christ. And Christ replied to them, “The period of years of Satan’s power has been fulfilled, but other dreadful things will happen soon. And I was handed over to death for those who have sinned, so that they may return to the truth and sin no more, and so they may inherit the spiritual, incorruptible, and righteous glory in heaven.”
  5. 16:17 Or new tongues; some manuscripts do not include new.
