Knijga O Kristu

Matej 28:1-20

Isusovo uskrsnuće

(Mk 16:1-8; Lk 24:1-12; Iv 20:1-18)

1U nedjelju rano ujutro28:1 U grčkome: Nakon subote, u svanuće prvoga dana tjedna. Marija Magdalena i druga Marija dođu pogledati grob. 2Odjednom nastane silan potres: anđeo Gospodnji siđe s neba, odvali kamen s ulaza u grob i sjedne na njega. 3Lice mu je bilo sjajno poput munje, a odjeća bijela poput snijega. 4Stražari se pred njim počnu tresti od straha i onesvijeste se.

5Tada anđeo reče ženama: “Ne bojte se! Znam da tražite raspetoga Isusa. 6Ali on nije ovdje; uskrsnuo je kako vam je i rekao! Dođite vidjeti mjesto gdje je ležao 7pa brzo idite javiti njegovim učenicima da je uskrsnuo od mrtvih. Ide, eto, pred vama u Galileju. Ondje ćete ga vidjeti. Pamtite što sam vam rekao.”

8Silno uplašene ali presretne, žene žurno krenu s groba i otrče to javiti njegovim učenicima. 9Odjednom im u susret dođe Isus! “Zdravo!” reče im. One mu pritrče, obujme mu noge i ničice mu se poklone. 10“Ne bojte se”, reče im Isus. “Idite javiti mojoj braći da pođu u Galileju. Ondje ćemo se vidjeti.”

Izjava stražara

11Dok su žene odlazile, neki od stražara dođu u grad i jave svećeničkim poglavarima sve što se dogodilo. 12Oni se sastanu sa starješinama na vijećanje, a zatim uzmu mnogo novca i dadu ga vojnicima. 13“Recite: ‘Noću dok smo spavali došli su njegovi učenici i ukrali ga.’ 14Ako za to čuje upravitelj, mi ćemo ga već uvjeriti i pobrinuti se da nemate problema.” 15Oni uzmu novac i postupe kako su ih uputili. To se pričanje razglasilo među Židovima i zadržalo sve do danas.

Veliko poslanje

(Mk 16:14-18; Lk 24:36-49; Iv 20:19-23)

16Jedanaestorica pođu u Galileju, na goru, kamo im je zapovjedio Isus. 17Kad su ga ugledali, padnu pred njim ničice, ali neki su ipak posumnjali.

18Isus im priđe i reče im: “Dana mi je sva vlast na nebu i na zemlji. 19Idite zato i učinite sve narode mojim učenicima krsteći ih u ime Oca i Sina i Svetoga Duha. 20Učite ih da ispunjavaju sve što sam vam zapovjedio! Ja sam s vama u sve dane do svršetka svijeta.”

New International Version

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 worshiped 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 worshiped 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, baptizing 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.”
