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።”

King James Version

Matthew 28:1-20

1In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. 8And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

9¶ And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. 10Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

11¶ Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. 12And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. 14And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 15So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

16¶ Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19¶ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
