MARK 15:33-16:8

Chapter 15

33. When the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34. At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, ``ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" which is translated, ``MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?" 35. When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying, ``Behold, He is calling for Elijah." 36. Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying, ``Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down." 37. And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last. 38. And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39. When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, ``Truly this man was the Son of God!" 40. There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Less and Joses, and Salome. 41. When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem. 42. When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43. Joseph of Arimathea came, a prominent member of the Council, who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God; and he gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 44. Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead. 45. And ascertaining this from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. 46. Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. 47. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were looking on to see where He was laid.

Chapter 16

1. When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him. 2. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. 3. They were saying to one another, ``Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?" 4. Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large. 5. Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed. 6. And he said to them, ``Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him. 7. ``But go, tell His disciples and Peter, `He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.'" 8. They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
