16፥1-8፤ ተጓ ምብ – ማቴ 28፥1-8፤ ሉቃ 24፥1-10
1ሰንበት ካለፈ በኋላ መግደላዊት ማርያም፣ የያዕቆብ እናት ማርያምና ሰሎሜ ሄደው የኢየሱስን ሥጋ ለመቀባት ሽቱ ገዙ። 2በሳምንቱ መጀመሪያ ቀን ጠዋት በማለዳ፣ ገና ፀሓይ እንደ ወጣች፣ ወደ መቃብሩ በመሄድ ላይ ሳሉ፣ 3“ድንጋዩን ከመቃብሩ ደጃፍ ላይ ማን ያንከባልልልናል?” በማለት እርስ በርሳቸው ይነጋገሩ ነበር።
4ቀና ብለው ሲመለከቱ፣ በጣም ትልቅ የነበረው ድንጋይ ከደጃፉ ላይ ተንከባሎ አዩ። 5ወደ መቃብሩ እንደ ገቡም፣ ነጭ ልብስ የለበሰ ጐልማሳ በቀኝ በኩል ተቀምጦ አዩና ደነገጡ።
6እርሱ ግን እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “አትደንግጡ፤ የምትፈልጉት የተሰቀለውን የናዝሬቱን ኢየሱስን ነው፤ እርሱ ተነሥቶአል፤ እዚህ የለም፤ እርሱን ያኖሩበት ስፍራ ይኸውላችሁ። 7ነገር ግን ሄዳችሁ ለደቀ መዛሙርቱና ለጴጥሮስ፣ ‘ቀድሞአችሁ ወደ ገሊላ ይሄዳል፤ እንደ ነገራችሁ እዚያ ታገኙታላችሁ’ ብላችሁ ንገሯቸው።”
8ሴቶቹም እየተንቀጠቀጡና እየተደነቁ ከመቃብሩ ሸሽተው ወጡ፤ ፈርተው ስለ ነበር ለማንም አንዳች አልተናገሩም።
9በሳምንቱ መጀመሪያ ቀን ማለዳ ከሙታን ከተነሣ በኋላ፣ ሰባት አጋንንት ላወጣላት ለማርያም መግደላዊት በመጀመሪያ ታየ። 10እርሷም ሄዳ፣ ከእርሱ ጋር የነበሩት እያዘኑ ሲያለቅሱ አግኝታ እርሱ ሕያው መሆኑንና ለእርሷም መታየቱን ነገረቻቸው፤ 11እነርሱ ግን አላመኗትም።
12ከዚህ በኋላ ከደቀ መዛሙርቱ ሁለቱ ወደ ገጠር ሲሄዱ በሌላ መልክ ታያቸው። 13እነርሱም ተመልሰው ይህንኑ ለቀሩት ነገሯቸው፤ ይሁን እንጂ እነርሱንም አላመኗቸውም።
14ከዚያም ዐሥራ አንዱ በማዕድ ላይ ሳሉ ተገለጠላቸው፤ ከተነሣ በኋላ ያዩት ሰዎች የነገሯቸውን ስላላመኗቸው፣ አለማመናቸውንና የልባቸውን ድንዳኔ ነቀፈ። 15እንዲህም አላቸው፤“ወደ ዓለም ሁሉ ሂዱ፤ ወንጌልንም ለፍጥረት ሁሉ ስበኩ፤ 16ያመነ የተጠመቀ ይድናል፤ ያላመነ ግን ይፈረድበታል። 17የሚያምኑትን እነዚህ ምልክቶች ይከተሏቸዋል፤ በስሜ አጋንንትን ያወጣሉ፤ በአዲስ ልሳንም ይናገራሉ፤ 18እባቦችን በእጃቸው ይይዛሉ፤ የሚገድል መርዝ ቢጠጡ እንኳ አይጐዳቸውም፤ እጃቸውንም በሕመምተኞች ላይ ይጭናሉ፤ እነርሱም ይፈወሳሉ።”
19ጌታ ኢየሱስ ይህን ከተናገራቸው በኋላ ወደ ሰማይ ዐረገ፤ በእግዚአብሔርም ቀኝ ተቀመጠ። 20ከዚያም ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ወጥተው፣ በየስፍራው ሁሉ ሰበኩ፤ ጌታም ከእነርሱ ጋር ይሠራ ነበር፤ ትምህርታቸውንም ተከትለው በሚፈጸሙ ምልክቶች ቃሉን ያጸና ነበር16፥20 አንዳንድ የጥንት ቅጆች በቍ 9-20 ላይ ያለው ክፍል የላቸውም።።
Jesus Has Risen
1When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
4But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ”
8Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.16:8 Some manuscripts have the following ending between verses 8 and 9, and one manuscript has it after verse 8 (omitting verses 9-20): Then they quickly reported all these instructions to those around Peter. After this, Jesus himself also sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation. Amen.
[The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have verses 9–20.]
9When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. 10She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. 11When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
12Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. 13These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
14Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
15He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
19After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
