ማቴዎስ 28:1-20

የኢየሱስ ከሙታን መነሣት

28፥1-8 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 16፥1-8፤ ሉቃ 24፥1-10

1ሰንበት ካለፈ በኋላ፣ በሳምንቱ መጀመሪያ ቀን ጎሕ ሲቀድ፣ ማርያም መግደላዊትና ሌላዋ ማርያም መቃብሩን ሊያዩ ሄዱ።

2በድንገት ታላቅ የምድር መናወጥ ሆነ፤ የጌታም መልአክ ከሰማይ ወርዶ ወደ መቃብሩ በመሄድ ድንጋዩን አንከባሎ በላዩ ላይ ተቀመጠበት፤ 3መልኩ እንደ መብረቅ ብሩህ ልብሱም እንደ በረዶ ነጭ ነበር። 4ጠባቂዎቹ መልአኩን ከመፍራት የተነሣ ተንቀጠቀጡ፤ እንደ በድንም ሆኑ።

5መልአኩም ሴቶቹን እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “አትፍሩ፤ የተሰቀለውን ኢየሱስን እንደምትፈልጉ አውቃለሁና፤ 6እርሱ በዚህ የለም፤ እንደ ተናገረው ተነሥቶአል፤ ኑና ተኝቶበት የነበረውን ቦታ እዩ። 7አሁንም ፈጥናችሁ ሂዱና ለደቀ መዛሙርቱ፣ ‘ከሙታን ተነሥቶአል፤ ቀድሞአችሁ ወደ ገሊላ ይሄዳል፤ በዚያ ታዩታላችሁ’ ብላችሁ ንገሯቸው። እንግዲህ ነግሬአችኋለሁ!”

8ሴቶቹም በፍርሀትና በደስታ ተሞልተው ለደቀ መዛሙርቱ ለመንገር በፍጥነት እየሮጡ የመቃብሩን ስፍራ ትተው ሄዱ። 9ወዲያው ኢየሱስ አገኛቸውና፣ “ሰላም ለእናንተ ይሁን!” አላቸው። እነርሱም ወደ ኢየሱስ ቀርበው እግሩን ይዘው ሰገዱለት። 10ኢየሱስም፣ “አትፍሩ፤ ሂዱና ወደ ገሊላ እንዲሄዱ ለወንድሞቼ ንገሯቸው፤ በዚያ ያዩኛል” አላቸው።

የጠባቂዎች ምስክርነት

11ሴቶቹ በመንገድ ላይ ሳሉ፣ ከጠባቂዎቹ ጥቂቶቹ ወደ ከተማ በመሄድ የሆነውን ሁሉ ለካህናት አለቆች አወሩላቸው። 12የካህናት አለቆችም ከሽማግሌዎች ጋር ተሰብስበው ተማከሩ፤ ለወታደሮቹ በቂ ገንዘብ በመስጠት 13እንዲህ አሏቸው፤ “ ‘ተኝተን ሳለን ደቀ መዛሙርቱ በሌሊት መጥተው ሰረቁት’ በሉ፤ 14ይህ ወሬ በገዥው ዘንድ ቢሰማ እንኳ፣ እኛ እናስረዳዋለን፤ ምንም ክፉ ነገር እንዳይደርስባችሁ እናደርጋለን።” 15ወታደሮቹም ገንዘቡን ተቀብለው እንደ ታዘዙት አደረጉ። ይህም ታሪክ እስከ ዛሬ ድረስ በአይሁዶች ዘንድ በሰፊው እንደተሰራጨ ነው።

ታላቁ ተልእኮ

16ከዚያም ዐሥራ አንዱ ደቀ መዛሙርት በገሊላ ወዳለው ኢየሱስ ወዳመለከታቸው ተራራ ሄዱ። 17ባዩትም ጊዜ ሰገዱለት፤ ጥቂቶች ግን ተጠራጠሩ። 18ኢየሱስም ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ወዳሉበት ቀርቦ እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ሥልጣን ሁሉ በሰማይና በምድር ተሰጥቶኛል፤ 19ስለዚህ ሂዱና ሕዝቦችን ሁሉ በአብ፣ በወልድና በመንፈስ ቅዱስ ስም እያጠመቃችኋቸው ደቀ መዛሙርት አድርጓቸው፤ 20ያዘዝኋችሁንም ሁሉ እንዲጠብቁ አስተምሯቸው፤ እኔም እስከ ዓለም ፍጻሜ ድረስ ሁል ጊዜ ከእናንተ ጋር ነኝ።”

Matthew 28:1-20

Jesus has risen

1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: “He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.” Now I have told you.’

8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.’

The guards’ report

11While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13telling them, ‘You are to say, “His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.” 14If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.’ 15So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

The great commission

16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. 18Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
