The Resurrection1 Now the Sabbath1 having passed Mary Magdalene and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome bought spices that when [they] come they may anoint him. 2 And very early on the first [day] from the Sabbath2 they come up to the tomb, the sun having risen. 3 And they were saying to each other: Who will roll the stone out of the door for us? 4 And when [they] looked up, they were seeing that the stone had been rolled away, even though it was very great. 5 And when [they] went into the tomb they saw [a] young man sitting at the right having been clothed with [a] white robe, and they were alarmed. 6 And he says to them: Do not be being alarmed, you seek Jesus the Nazarene the [one] having been crucified. He is risen, he is not here; behold the place where they laid him. 7 But be departing, tell his disciples, especially Peter, that he goes before them into Galilee. There you will see him just as he said to you. 8 And having come out they fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment held them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. 9 3 And after rising early on the first [day] from the Sabbath he appeared first to Mary the Magdalene, from whom he had cast seven demons. 10 That [one] having gone told those having come to be with him, [who were] mourning and weeping. 11 These also when [they] heard that he zoe-lives4 and was seen by her did not believe. 12 Now after these [things], to two of them while walking he appeared in another form walking to [the] countryside. 13 These also having left reported to the others; they believed not even them. 14 But later he appeared to the eleven themselves being seated at table, and he reproached their unbelief and hardness of heart that they did not believe those having seen him when [he] had risen. 15 And he said to them: After [you] go into all the world, herald the good-news to all creation. 16 The [one who] believes and is baptized shall be saved. 17 But the [one who] does not believe shall be condemned. In my name they will cast out demons, they will speak in new languages, 18 they will take up snakes and whatever deadly [thing] they may drink, it will by no means harm them, they will lay [their] hands upon [the] sick and they will be well. 19 Then indeed the Lord Jesus after [he] spoke to them was received up into heaven and sat at the right of God. 20 But those, when [they] went out, heralded everywhere, the Lord working with [them] and establishing the word through accompanying signs.
1The "Sabbath" is a holy day. In the Jewish tradition, every Saturday is a "Sabbath", and as we know from Genesis 1, the Sabbath is the seventh day. Thus the "first day of the Sabbath" is Sunday. Other holy days that don't fall on Saturday are also "Sabbaths".

4from ZOE "ZOH-ay" (ζωη)—Life 'collectively', interdependent, interconnected. Although it means 'life' in the conventional sense (for example: Matt.9:18, Matt.27:63, Luke.2:36, Acts.25:24, Rom.7:2, 2Cor.1:8, 1Thes.4:17, 1Tim.5:10, Rev.19:20), Jesus uses ZOE exclusively of 'life eternal' (with the possible exceptions of Luke.15:13, Luke.16:25). The other N.T. writers use ZOE in both senses—temporal and eternal, generally clear from the context. The Father is the 'zoe-living God' (see Matt.16:16). The Septuagint (LXX) in Gen.2:7 has "...[God] breathed into his nostrils the breath of zoe-life, and the man became a zoe-living psyche-life" (and see 1Cor.15:45); and Gen.3:20 (LXX) "And Adam called his wife's name ZOE, because she was the mother of all zoe-living." Contrast PSYCHE (ψυχη): an individual manifestation of life/consciousness. See John.12:25 where both ZOE and PSYCHE occur. Greek also has the word BIOS (βιoς ) for 'life' in the sense of biological processes.
