Mateus 28

A Ressurreição

1Depois do sábado, tendo começado o primeiro dia da semana, Maria Madalena e a outra Maria foram ver o sepulcro.

E eis que sobreveio um grande terremoto, pois um anjo do Senhor desceu dos céus e, chegando ao sepulcro, rolou a pedra da entrada e assentou-se sobre ela. Sua aparência era como um relâmpago, e suas vestes eram brancas como a neve. Os guardas tremeram de medo e ficaram como mortos.

O anjo disse às mulheres: “Não tenham medo! Sei que vocês estão procurando Jesus, que foi crucificado. Ele não está aqui; ressuscitou, como tinha dito. Venham ver o lugar onde ele jazia. Vão depressa e digam aos discípulos dele: Ele ressuscitou dentre os mortos e está indo adiante de vocês para a Galiléia. Lá vocês o verão. Notem que eu já os avisei”.

As mulheres saíram depressa do sepulcro, amedrontadas e cheias de alegria, e foram correndo anunciá-lo aos discípulos de Jesus. De repente, Jesus as encontrou e disse: “Salve!” Elas se aproximaram dele, abraçaram-lhe os pés e o adoraram. 10 Então Jesus lhes disse: “Não tenham medo. Vão dizer a meus irmãos que se dirijam para a Galiléia; lá eles me verão”.

O Relato dos Guardas

11 Enquanto as mulheres estavam a caminho, alguns dos guardas dirigiram-se à cidade e contaram aos chefes dos sacerdotes tudo o que havia acontecido. 12 Quando os chefes dos sacerdotes se reuniram com os líderes religiosos, elaboraram um plano. Deram aos soldados grande soma de dinheiro, 13 dizendo-lhes: “Vocês devem declarar o seguinte: Os discípulos dele vieram durante a noite e furtaram o corpo, enquanto estávamos dormindo. 14 Se isso chegar aos ouvidos do governador, nós lhe daremos explicações e livraremos vocês de qualquer problema”. 15 Assim, os soldados receberam o dinheiro e fizeram como tinham sido instruídos. E esta versão se divulgou entre os judeus até o dia de hoje.

A Grande Comissão

16 Os onze discípulos foram para a Galiléia, para o monte que Jesus lhes indicara. 17 Quando o viram, o adoraram; mas alguns duvidaram. 18 Então, Jesus aproximou-se deles e disse: “Foi-me dada toda a autoridade nos céus e na terra. 19 Portanto, vão e façam discípulos de todas as nações, batizando-os em[a] nome do Pai e do Filho e do Espírito Santo, 20 ensinando-os a obedecer a tudo o que eu lhes ordenei. E eu estarei sempre com vocês, até o fim dos tempos”.

New Living Translation

Matthew 28

The Resurrection

1Early on Sunday morning,[a] as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.

Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.

Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.”

The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.”

The Report of the Guard

11 As the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and told the leading priests what had happened. 12 A meeting with the elders was called, and they decided to give the soldiers a large bribe. 13 They told the soldiers, “You must say, ‘Jesus’ disciples came during the night while we were sleeping, and they stole his body.’ 14 If the governor hears about it, we’ll stand up for you so you won’t get in trouble.” 15 So the guards accepted the bribe and said what they were told to say. Their story spread widely among the Jews, and they still tell it today.

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[b] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
