The Life of Jesus in Harmony
Mat 28:2-15, Mk 16:1-11 Lk 24:1-12; Jn 20:1-18
Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended
from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know
that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
"He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the
"And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and
indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have
So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to
bring His disciples word.
And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me."
Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and
reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.
When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a
large sum of money to the soldiers,
saying, "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we
"And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will appease him and make you
So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is
commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb
when the sun had risen.
And they said among themselves, "Who will roll away the stone from the door of
the tomb for us?"
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away-- for it
was very large.
And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe
sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they
"But go, tell His disciples-- and Peter-- that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He
said to you."
So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were
amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary
Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.
She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not
Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain
other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had
But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments.
Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to
them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?
"He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still
"saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the
third day rise again.'"
And they remembered His words.
Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and
to all the rest.
It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women
with them, who told these things to the apostles.
And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them.
But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had
On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it
was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of
the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."
Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb.
So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the
And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he
did not go in.
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the
linen cloths lying there,
and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen
cloths, but folded together in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw
For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the
Then the disciples went away again to their own homes.
But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down
and looked into the tomb.
And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the
feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
Then they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them,
"Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him."
Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there,
and did not know that it was Jesus.
Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You have carried
Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away."
Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to Him, " Rabboni !" (which is to say, Teacher).
Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My
brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.'"
Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and
that He had spoken these things to her.
An Outline of The Life of Jesus in Harmony
"I marvel that whereas the
ambitious dreams of myself, Caesar, and Alexander should have
vanished into thin air, a Judean peasant - Jesus should be able to
stretch his hands across the centuries and control the destinies of
men and nations." - Napoleon
