Day 28

Matthew 28


28:1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 

28:2 Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky, and came and rolled away the stone from the door, and sat on it. 

28:3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 

28:4 For fear of him, the guards shook, and became like dead men. 

28:5 The angel answered the women, "Don't be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus, who has been crucified. 

28:6 He is not here, for he has risen, just like he said. Come, see the place where the Lord was lying. 

28:7 Go quickly and tell his disciples, 'He has risen from the dead, and behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there you will see him.' Behold, I have told you." 

28:8 They departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring his disciples word. 

28:9 As they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" They came and took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. 

28:10 Then Jesus said to them, "Don't be afraid. Go tell my brothers{The word for "brothers" here may be also correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} that they should go into Galilee, and there they will see me." 

28:11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guards came into the city, and told the chief priests all the things that had happened. 

28:12 When they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave a large amount of silver to the soldiers, 

28:13 saying, "Say that his disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. 

28:14 If this comes to the governor's ears, we will persuade him and make you free of worry." 

28:15 So they took the money and did as they were told. This saying was spread abroad among the Jews, and continues until this day. 

28:16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had sent them. 

28:17 When they saw him, they bowed down to him, but some doubted. 

28:18 Jesus came to them and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 

28:19 Therefore go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 

28:20 teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

 


1 Corinthians 11


11:1 Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ. 

11:2 Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you. 

11:3 But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 

11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. 

11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved.

11:6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. 

11:7 For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man. 

11:8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man; 

11:9 for neither was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 

11:10 For this cause the woman ought to have authority on her head, because of the angels. 

11:11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord. 

11:12 For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from God. 

11:13 Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled? 

11:14 Doesn't even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 

11:15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering. 

11:16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies. 

11:17 But in giving you this command, I don't praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse. 

11:18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it. 

11:19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you. 

11:20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat. 

11:21 For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken. 

11:22 What, don't you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God's assembly, and put them to shame who don't have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don't praise you. 

11:23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread. 

11:24 When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me." 

11:25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me." 

11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 

11:27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord's cup in a manner unworthy of the Lord will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 

11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 

11:29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern the Lord's body. 

11:30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 

11:31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn't be judged. 

11:32 But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 

11:33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait one for another. 

11:34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come. 

 


1 Corinthians 12


12:1 Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I don't want you to be ignorant. 

12:2 You know that when you were heathen{or Gentiles}, you were led away to those mute idols, however you might be led. 

12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no man speaking by God's Spirit says, "Jesus is accursed." No one can say, "Jesus is Lord," but by the Holy Spirit. 

12:4 Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 

12:5 There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord. 

12:6 There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works all things in all. 

12:7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all. 

12:8 For to one is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom, and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 

12:9 to another faith, by the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, by the same Spirit; 

12:10 and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages. 

12:11 But the one and the same Spirit works all of these, distributing to each one separately as he desires. 

12:12 For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. 

12:13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit. 

12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. 

12:15 If the foot would say, "Because I'm not the hand, I'm not part of the body," it is not therefore not part of the body. 

12:16 If the ear would say, "Because I'm not the eye, I'm not part of the body," it's not therefore not part of the body. 

12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? 

12:18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body, just as he desired. 

12:19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 

12:20 But now they are many members, but one body. 

12:21 The eye can't tell the hand, "I have no need for you," or again the head to the feet, "I have no need for you." 

12:22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 

12:23 Those parts of the body which we think to be less honorable, on those we bestow more abundant honor; and our unpresentable parts have more abundant propriety; 

12:24 whereas our presentable parts have no such need. But God composed the body together, giving more abundant honor to the inferior part, 

12:25 that there should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 

12:26 When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. 

12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 

12:28 God has set some in the assembly: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracle workers, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages. 

12:29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all miracle workers? 

12:30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret? 

12:31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.
