Mark 16:9-20 (3rd Matins Resurrection Gospel)Now when Jesus
was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told them that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that He was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. And after these things He appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the rest: neither believed they them. Afterward He appeared unto the eleven as they reclined at table, and upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen. And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to all creation. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be condemned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He ascended into Heaven, and sat at the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.
