|Your personal background.|
|I was born in Hungary, before the fall of the Iron Curtain. While I was still young, my family fled - amid machine gun fire - from the totalitarian atheism of communist Soviet socialism (USSR). We lived for several months in a refugee camp near Vienna Austria. As my Dad had a masters in Engineering, he got a job offer (a sponsor) relatively quickly.|
I worked for NASA at Cape Canaveral, before going back to graduate school.
I have a PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am also a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.).
I spent 4 weeks interpreting for the centennial Olympic Games.
In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth,
the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light," and [BANG!] there was light.
God saw how good the light was.
Then God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered into a single basin, so that the dry land may appear." God saw how good it was.
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth vegetation..." And so it happened: the earth brought forth every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree on earth that bears fruit with its seed in it. God saw how good it was.
Then God said, "Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures, and on the earth let birds fly beneath the dome of the sky." God saw how good it was, and God blessed them, saying, "Be fertile, multiply, and fill the water of the seas; and let the birds multiply on the earth."
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth all kinds of living creatures: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals of all kinds." And so it happened. God saw how good it was.
Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the creatures that crawl on the ground."
God created man in his image;
in the divine image he created him;
male and female he created them.
God blessed them, saying: "Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that move on the earth."
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.
I will sing to the LORD, for he is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot he has cast into the sea.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
He is my God, I praise him;
the God of my father, I extol him.
Your right hand, O LORD, magnificent in power,
your right hand, O LORD, has shattered the enemy.
The enemy boasted, "I will pursue and overtake them;
I will divide the spoils and have my fill of them;
I will draw my sword; my hand shall despoil them!"
When your wind blew, the sea covered them;
like lead they sank in the mighty waters.
Who is like to you among the gods, O LORD?
Who is like to you, magnificent in holiness?
In your mercy you led the people you redeemed;
in your strength you guided them to your holy dwelling.
The nations heard and quaked;
terror and dread fell upon them.
By the might of your arm they were frozen like stone,
while your people, O LORD, passed over,
while the people you had made your own passed over.
And you brought them in and planted them on the mountain of
the place where you made your seat, O LORD,
the sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands established.
The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
Sing to the LORD, for he is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot he has cast into the sea.
"I, the LORD, am your God,
You shall not have other gods besides me.
"You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain.
"Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
"Honor your father and your mother, that you may have a long life .
"You shall not kill.
"You shall not commit adultery.
"You shall not steal.
"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
"You shall not covet your neighbor's house.
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife ."
Woe to the city, rebellious and polluted, to the tyrannical city!
She hears no voice, accepts no correction;
In the LORD she has not trusted, to her God she has not drawn near.
Her princes in her midst are roaring lions;
Her judges are wolves of the night that have had no bones to gnaw by morning.
The hand of the LORD came upon me, and he led me out in the spirit of the LORD and set me in the center of the plain, which was now filled with bones. He made me walk among them in every direction so that I saw how many they were on the surface of the plain. How dry they were!
He asked me: Son of man, can these bones come to life? "Lord GOD," I answered, "you alone know that." Then he said to me: Prophesy over these bones, and say to them: Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: See! I will bring spirit into you, that you may come to life. I will put sinews upon you, make flesh grow over you, cover you with skin, and put spirit in you so that you may come to life and know that I am the LORD.
I prophesied as I had been told, and even as I was prophesying I heard a noise; it was a rattling as the bones came together, bone joining bone. I saw the sinews and the flesh come upon them, and the skin cover them, but there was no spirit in them.
Then He said to me: Prophesy to the Spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the Spirit: Thus says the Lord GOD: From the four winds come, O spirit, and breathe into these slain that they may come to life.
I prophesied as he told me, and the spirit came into them; they came alive and stood upright, a vast army.
Thus says the Lord GOD: O my people, I will open your graves and have you rise from them, and bring you back to the land of Israel.
Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and have you rise from them, O my people!
I will put my spirit in you that you may live, and I will settle you upon your land; thus you shall know that I am the LORD. I have promised, and I will do it, says the LORD.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
a light has shone.
For the yoke that burdened them,
the pole on their shoulder,
And the rod of their taskmaster
you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.
For a child is born to us, a son is given us;
upon his shoulder dominion rests.
They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,
Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.
His dominion is vast
and forever peaceful,
From David's throne, and over his kingdom,
which he confirms and sustains
By judgment and justice,
both now and forever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!
Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel.
A su paso, JesÃºs vio a un hombre que era ciego de nacimiento. Y sus discÃpulos le preguntaron: â€”RabÃ, para que este hombre haya nacido ciego, Â¿quiÃ©n pecÃ³, Ã©l o sus padres? â€”Ni Ã©l pecÃ³, ni sus padres â€”respondiÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”, sino que esto sucediÃ³ para que la obra de Dios se hiciera evidente en su vida. Mientras estÃ© yo en el mundo, luz soy del mundo. Dicho esto, escupiÃ³ en el suelo, hizo barro con la saliva y se lo untÃ³ en los ojos al ciego, diciÃ©ndole: â€”Ve y lÃ¡vate en el estanque de SiloÃ© (que significa: Enviado). El ciego fue y se lavÃ³, y al volver ya veÃa. Sus vecinos y los que lo habÃan visto pedir limosna decÃan: Â«Â¿No es Ã©ste el que se sienta a mendigar?Â» Unos aseguraban: Â«SÃ, es Ã©l.Â» Otros decÃan: Â«No es Ã©l, sino que se le parece.Â» Pero Ã©l insistÃa: Â«Soy yo.Â» â€”Â¿CÃ³mo entonces se te han abierto los ojos? â€”le preguntaron. â€”Ese hombre que se llama JesÃºs hizo un poco de barro, me lo untÃ³ en los ojos y me dijo: "Ve y lÃ¡vate en SiloÃ©." AsÃ que fui, me lavÃ©, y entonces pude ver. â€”Â¿Y dÃ³nde estÃ¡ ese hombre? â€”le preguntaron. â€”No lo sÃ© â€”respondiÃ³. ... ... interrogaron de nuevo al ciego: â€”Â¿Y quÃ© opinas tÃº de Ã©l? Fue a ti a quien te abriÃ³ los ojos. â€”Yo digo que es profeta â€”contestÃ³. Pero los judÃos no creÃan que el hombre hubiera sido ciego y que ahora viera, y hasta llamaron a sus padres y les preguntaron: â€”Â¿Es Ã©ste su hijo, el que dicen ustedes que naciÃ³ ciego? Â¿CÃ³mo es que ahora puede ver? â€”Sabemos que Ã©ste es nuestro hijo â€”contestaron los padresâ€”, y sabemos tambiÃ©n que naciÃ³ ciego. Lo que no sabemos es cÃ³mo ahora puede ver, ni quiÃ©n le abriÃ³ los ojos. PregÃºntenselo a Ã©l.
JesÃºs resucita a LÃ¡zaro
HabÃa un hombre enfermo llamado LÃ¡zaro, que era de Betania, el pueblo de MarÃa y Marta, sus hermanas. MarÃa era la misma que ungiÃ³ con perfume al SeÃ±or, y le secÃ³ los pies con sus cabellos. Las dos hermanas mandaron a decirle a JesÃºs: Â«SeÃ±or, tu amigo querido estÃ¡ enfermo.Â» Cuando JesÃºs oyÃ³ esto, dijo: Â«Esta enfermedad no terminarÃ¡ en muerte, sino que es para la gloria de Dios, para que por ella el Hijo de Dios sea glorificado.Â» JesÃºs amaba a Marta, a su hermana y a LÃ¡zaro. A pesar de eso, cuando oyÃ³ que LÃ¡zaro estaba enfermo, se quedÃ³ dos dÃas mÃ¡s donde se encontraba. DespuÃ©s dijo a sus discÃpulos: â€”Volvamos a Judea. â€”RabÃ â€”objetaron ellosâ€”, hace muy poco los judÃos intentaron apedrearte, Â¿y todavÃa quieres volver allÃ¡? â€”Â¿Acaso el dÃa no tiene doce horas? â€”respondiÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”. El que anda de dÃa no tropieza, porque tiene la luz de este mundo. Pero el que anda de noche sÃ tropieza, porque no tiene luz. Dicho esto, aÃ±adiÃ³: â€”Nuestro amigo LÃ¡zaro duerme, pero voy a despertarlo. â€”SeÃ±or â€”respondieron sus discÃpulosâ€”, si duerme, es que va a recuperarse. JesÃºs les hablaba de la muerte de LÃ¡zaro, pero sus discÃpulos pensaron que se referÃa al sueÃ±o natural. Por eso les dijo claramente: â€”LÃ¡zaro ha muerto, y por causa de ustedes me alegro de no haber estado allÃ, para que crean. Pero vamos a verlo.
JesÃºs consuela a las hermanas de LÃ¡zaro
A su llegada, JesÃºs se encontrÃ³ con que LÃ¡zaro llevaba ya cuatro dÃas en el sepulcro. Betania estaba cerca de JerusalÃ©n, como a tres kilÃ³metros de distancia, y muchos judÃos habÃan ido a casa de Marta y de MarÃa, a darles el pÃ©same por la muerte de su hermano. Cuando Marta supo que JesÃºs llegaba, fue a su encuentro; pero MarÃa se quedÃ³ en la casa. â€”SeÃ±or â€”le dijo Marta a JesÃºsâ€”, si hubieras estado aquÃ, mi hermano no habrÃa muerto. Pero yo sÃ© que aun ahora Dios te darÃ¡ todo lo que le pidas. â€”Tu hermano resucitarÃ¡ â€”le dijo JesÃºs. â€”Yo sÃ© que resucitarÃ¡ en la resurrecciÃ³n, en el dÃa final â€”respondiÃ³ Marta. Entonces JesÃºs le dijo: â€”Yo soy la resurrecciÃ³n y la vida. El que cree en mÃ vivirÃ¡, aunque muera; y todo el que vive y cree en mÃ no morirÃ¡ jamÃ¡s. Â¿Crees esto? â€”SÃ, SeÃ±or; yo creo que tÃº eres el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios, el que habÃa de venir al mundo. Dicho esto, Marta regresÃ³ a la casa y, llamando a su hermana MarÃa, le dijo en privado: â€”El Maestro estÃ¡ aquÃ y te llama. Cuando MarÃa oyÃ³ esto, se levantÃ³ rÃ¡pidamente y fue a su encuentro. Cuando MarÃa llegÃ³ adonde estaba JesÃºs y lo vio, se arrojÃ³ a sus pies y le dijo: â€”SeÃ±or, si hubieras estado aquÃ, mi hermano no habrÃa muerto. Al ver llorar a MarÃa y a los judÃos que la habÃan acompaÃ±ado, JesÃºs se turbÃ³ y se conmoviÃ³ profundamente. â€”Â¿DÃ³nde lo han puesto? â€”preguntÃ³. â€”Ven a verlo, SeÃ±or â€”le respondieron. JesÃºs llorÃ³. â€”Â¡Miren cuÃ¡nto lo querÃa! â€”dijeron los judÃos. Pero algunos de ellos comentaban: â€”Ã‰ste, que le abriÃ³ los ojos al ciego, Â¿no podrÃa haber impedido que LÃ¡zaro muriera?
Conmovido una vez mÃ¡s, JesÃºs se acercÃ³ al sepulcro. Era una cueva cuya entrada estaba tapada con una piedra. â€”Quiten la piedra â€”ordenÃ³ JesÃºs. Marta, la hermana del difunto, objetÃ³: â€”SeÃ±or, ya debe oler mal, pues lleva cuatro dÃas allÃ. â€”Â¿No te dije que si crees verÃ¡s la gloria de Dios? â€”le contestÃ³ JesÃºs. Entonces quitaron la piedra. JesÃºs, alzando la vista, dijo: â€”Padre, te doy gracias porque me has escuchado. Ya sabÃa yo que siempre me escuchas, pero lo dije por la gente que estÃ¡ aquÃ presente, para que crean que tÃº me enviaste. Dicho esto, gritÃ³ con todas sus fuerzas: â€”Â¡LÃ¡zaro, sal fuera! El muerto saliÃ³, con vendas en las manos y en los pies, y el rostro cubierto con un sudario. â€”QuÃtenle las vendas y dejen que se vaya â€”les dijo JesÃºs.
Cuando JesÃºs regresÃ³, la multitud se alegrÃ³ de verlo, pues todos estaban esperÃ¡ndolo. En esto llegÃ³ un hombre llamado Jairo, que era un jefe de la sinagoga. ArrojÃ¡ndose a los pies de JesÃºs, le suplicaba que fuera a su casa, porque su Ãºnica hija, de unos doce aÃ±os, se estaba muriendo. JesÃºs se puso en camino y las multitudes lo apretujaban. HabÃa entre la gente una mujer que hacÃa doce aÃ±os padecÃa de hemorragias, sin que nadie pudiera sanarla. Ella se le acercÃ³ por detrÃ¡s y le tocÃ³ el borde del manto, y al instante cesÃ³ su hemorragia. â€”Â¿QuiÃ©n me ha tocado? â€”preguntÃ³ JesÃºs. Como todos negaban haberlo tocado, Pedro le dijo: â€”Maestro, son multitudes las que te aprietan y te oprimen. â€”No, alguien me ha tocado â€”replicÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”; yo sÃ© que de mÃ ha salido poder. La mujer, al ver que no podÃa pasar inadvertida, se acercÃ³ temblando y se arrojÃ³ a sus pies. En presencia de toda la gente, contÃ³ por quÃ© lo habÃa tocado y cÃ³mo habÃa sido sanada al instante. â€”Hija, tu fe te ha sanado â€”le dijo JesÃºsâ€”. Vete en paz. TodavÃa estaba hablando JesÃºs, cuando alguien llegÃ³ de la casa de Jairo, jefe de la sinagoga, para decirle: â€”Tu hija ha muerto. No molestes mÃ¡s al Maestro. Al oÃr esto, JesÃºs le dijo a Jairo: â€”No tengas miedo; cree nada mÃ¡s, y ella serÃ¡ sanada. Cuando llegÃ³ a la casa de Jairo, no dejÃ³ que nadie entrara con Ã©l, excepto Pedro, Juan y Jacobo, y el padre y la madre de la niÃ±a. Todos estaban llorando, muy afligidos por ella. â€”Dejen de llorar â€”les dijo JesÃºsâ€”. No estÃ¡ muerta sino dormida. Entonces ellos empezaron a burlarse de Ã©l porque sabÃan que estaba muerta. Pero Ã©l la tomÃ³ de la mano y le dijo: â€”Â¡NiÃ±a, levÃ¡ntate! RecobrÃ³ la vida y al instante se levantÃ³. JesÃºs mandÃ³ darle de comer. Los padres se quedaron atÃ³nitos, pero Ã©l les advirtiÃ³ que no contaran a nadie lo que habÃa sucedido.

|During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted her relative Elizabeth, of the house of Aaron. |
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said,
"Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. "
And Mary said:
"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For He has looked upon His handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.
The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.
Then Zechariah, filled with the holy Spirit, prophesied, saying:
"Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
for he has visited and brought redemption to his people.
He has raised up a horn for our salvation
within the house of David his servant
Joseph went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.
The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.
The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger."
And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."
When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us."
So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.
When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child.
All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds.
And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.
Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.
When eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord, "Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord," .
Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This man was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and the holy Spirit was upon him.
It had been revealed to him by the holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the Lord.
He came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform the custom of the law in regard to him,
he took him into his arms and blessed God, saying:
"Now, Master, you may let your servant go
in peace, according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you prepared in sight of all the peoples,
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and glory for your people Israel."
And Jesus came down with them. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.
And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said:
"Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward
will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the
prophets in the same way.
But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.
But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep.
Woe to you when all speak well of you,
for their ancestors treated the false
prophets in this way.
"But to you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and from the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic.
Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back.
Do to others as you would have them do to you.
For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.
And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same.
But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked.
Be merciful, just as (also) your Father is merciful.
Jesus Questioned by Pilate.
Now Jesus stood before the governor, and he questioned him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus said, "You say so." And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he made no answer. Then Pilate said to him, "Do you not hear how many things they are testifying against you?" But he did not answer him one word, so that the governor was greatly amazed.
Now on the occasion of the feast the governor was accustomed to release to the crowd one prisoner whom they wished. And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called (Jesus) Barabbas. So when they had assembled, Pilate said to them, "Which one do you want me to release to you, (Jesus) Barabbas, or Jesus called Messiah?" For he knew that it was out of envy that they had handed him over.
While he was still seated on the bench, his wife sent him a message, "Have nothing to do with that righteous man. I suffered much in a dream today because of him." The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas but to destroy Jesus. The governor said to them in reply, "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" They answered, "Barabbas!" Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Jesus called Messiah?" They all said, "Let him be crucified!" But he said, "Why? What evil has he done?" They only shouted the louder, "Let him be crucified!"
When Pilate saw that he was not succeeding at all, but that a riot was breaking out instead, he took water and washed his hands in the sight of the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man's blood. Look to it yourselves." And the whole people said in reply, "His blood be upon us and upon our children." Then he released Barabbas to them, but after he had Jesus scourged, he handed him over to be crucified.
And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of the Skull), they gave Jesus wine to drink mixed with gall. But when he had tasted it, he refused to drink. After they had crucified him, they divided his garments by casting lots; then they sat down and kept watch over him there.
And they placed over his head the written charge against him: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.
Two revolutionaries were crucified with him, one on his right and the other on his left. Those passing by reviled him, shaking their heads and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, if you are the Son of God, (and) come down from the cross!"
From noon onward, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And about three o'clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Some of the bystanders who heard it said, "This one is calling for Elijah." Immediately one of them ran to get a sponge; he soaked it in wine, and putting it on a reed, gave it to him to drink. But the rest said, "Wait, let us see if Elijah comes to save him." But Jesus cried out again in a loud voice, and gave up his spirit.
And behold, the veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked, rocks were split, tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And coming forth from their tombs after his resurrection, they entered the holy city and appeared to many.
The centurion and the men with him who were keeping watch over Jesus feared greatly when they saw the earthquake and all that was happening, and they said, "Truly, this was the Son of God!" There were many women there, looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him. Among them were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph, who was himself a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be handed over. Taking the body, Joseph wrapped it (in) clean linen and laid it in his new tomb that he had hewn in the rock. Then he rolled a huge stone across the entrance to the tomb and departed. But Mary Magdalene and the other Mary remained sitting there, facing the tomb.
The next day, the one following the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate and said, "Sir, we remember that this impostor while still alive said, 'After three days I will be raised up.' Give orders, then, that the grave be secured until the third day, lest his disciples come and steal him and say to the people, 'He has been raised from the dead.' This last imposture would be worse than the first." Pilate said to them, "The guard is yours; go secure it as best you can." So they went and secured the tomb by fixing a seal to the stone and setting the guard.
After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, 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, approached, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men.
Then the angel said to the women in reply, "Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, 'He has been raised from the dead, and he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him.' Behold, I have told you."
Then they went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce this to his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened. They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.' And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble." The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day).
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, "All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
