0 SAB Matthew 28



Jesus rises from the dead

1 In 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.

Around dawn on the first day of the week [1], Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the sepulchre.

2 And, 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.

When they arrived, there was a big earthquake. [2]

An angel of the Lord rolled back the stone that closed the tomb, and sat on it. [3]

3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

He looked like lightning and his clothes were white as snow.

4And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

When the guards saw him they shook with fear and looked like dead men.

5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

He's not here. He rose from the dead as he said.

Come see the place where his body was lying. [4]

7 And 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.

Go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead.

He has gone to Galilee. You'll see him there.

I have told you so.

8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

They left the sepulchre with fear and joy, running to tell his disciples. [5]

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.

As they went to tell his disciples, Jesus met them and said,
Hi, you all.
And they grabbed him by his feet and worshiped him. [6]

10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Jesus said to them,
Don't be afraid. Tell my brothers to go to Galilee and they'll see me there. [7]
The priests bribe the guards

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.

While they were going, some of the guards told the chief priests what had happened.

12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

The chief priests and elders gave a large sum of money to the guards, saying,
Jesus's disciples came and stole his body while we slept.

14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

If the governor finds out about it, we'll persuade him not to punish you.

15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

So the guards took the money, and did what they were told to do.

The Jews are still talking about this today. [8]

Jesus appears to his disciples (but some doubted)

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

The eleven disciples went to Galilee [9], to a mountain that Jesus told them to go to.

17 And when they saw him,they worshipped him: but some doubted.

When the disciples saw Jesus, they worshiped him.

But some doubted. [10]

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Jesus said to them,
All power has been given to me in heaven and on earth. [11]

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:

So go teach all nations [11], baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Teaching them to obey whatever I have commanded you.

I'm with you always, even until the end of the world. Amen.

I’ve been comparing the 4 resurrection accounts, and I think I found another discrepancy. Its when the women discovered Jesus’s body was missing. In Matthew and Mark it’s after the angel(s) talk to the women, but in Luke and John it’s before.

In Matthew 28:5-6, an angel appears and tells the women to see the place where Jesus was laid. A similar thing happens in Mark 16:5-6, except the women were inside the tomb when they were told.

But in Luke 24:3-4, the women enter the tomb on their own accord and discover the tomb is empty. Then, while they’re still perplexed about what happened, two men (angels) suddenly appear before them. And in John 20:1-2 Mary discovers Jesus’s body is missing before the angels appear to her.

Thanks for the suggestion, SandColoredSky.

I've added When did the women discover that Jesus's body was missing? to the contradictions.
