28:1In the later ende of the Sabboth day, whiche dawneth the first daye of the weke, came Marie Magdalen, and the other Marie, to see the sepulchre.
28:2And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the Angell of the Lorde descended from heauen, and came & roulled backe the stone from the doore, and sate vpon it.
28:3His countenaunce was lyke lyghtnyng, and his rayment white as snowe.
28:4And for feare of him, the kepers were astonyed, and became as dead men.
28:5The Angell aunswered, and sayde vnto the women, feare ye not: For I knowe that ye seke Iesus whiche was crucified.
28:6He is not here, he is rysen, as he saide. Come, se the place where that the Lord was layde.
28:7And go quickly, & tell his disciples that he is rysen agayne from the dead. And beholde, he goeth before you into Galilee, there shall ye see hym. Loe, I haue tolde you.
28:8And they departed quickly from the sepulchre, with feare, and great ioy, and dyd runne, to bryng his disciples worde.
28:9And as they went to tell his disciples, beholde, Iesus met them, saying: All hayle. And they came and helde him by the feete, and worshypped hym.
28:10Then sayde Iesus vnto them: be not afrayde. Go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, & there shal they see me.
28:11When they were gone, beholde, some of the watche came into the citie, and shewed vnto the hye priestes all the thynges that were done.
28:12And they gathered the together, with the elders, and toke councell, and gaue large money vnto the souldiers,
28:13Saying. Saye ye, that his disciples came by nyght, & stole hym away while ye slept.
28:14And yf this come to the deputies [eares] we wyll perswade hym, and saue you harmelesse.
28:15So they toke the money, & dyd as they were taught. And this saying is noysed among the Iewes, vntyl this day.
28:16Then the eleuen disciples went awaye into Galilee, into a mountayne, where Iesus had appoynted them.
28:17And when they sawe hym, they worshypped hym: But some doubted.
28:18And Iesus came, and spake vnto the, saying: All power is geuen vnto me in heauen and in earth.
28:19Go ye therfore, & teache all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the sonne, and of the holye ghost:
28:20Teachyng the to obserue all thynges, whatsoeuer I haue commaunded you. And loe, I am with you alway, euen vnto the ende of the worlde.

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
