1 Matthew 28:16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had 2 appointed them. Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but there were of 3 them who doubted. Mark 16:14 And while they sat there he appeared to them again, and upbraided them for their lack of faith and the hardness of their hearts, those that saw him when he was risen, and believed not.
4 [Arabic, p. 209] Matthew 28:18b Then said Jesus unto them, I have been given all authority in heaven 5 and earth; and as my Father has sent me, so I also send you. Go now into 6 all the world, and preach my gospel in all the creation; Matthew 28:19b and teach all the peoples, and 7 baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit; Matthew 28:20 and teach them to keep all whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you all the days, unto 8 the end of the world. Mark 16:16 For whosoever believes and is baptized shall be saved; but 9 whosoever believes not shall be rejected. Mark 16:17 And the signs which shall attend those that believe in me are these: that they shall cast out devils in my name; and they 10 shall speak with new tongues; Mark 16:18 and they shall take up serpents, and if they drink deadly poison, it shall not injure them; and they shall lay their hands on the diseased, 11 and they shall be healed. Luke 24:49b But you, abide in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be clothed with power from on high.
12 And our Lord Jesus, after speaking to them, took them out to Bethany: and he 13 lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And while he blessed them, he was separated from them, and ascended into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 14, 15 Luke 24:52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: Luke 24:53 and at all times they were in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
16 Mark 16:20 And from thence they went forth, and preached in every place; and our Lord helped them, and confirmed their sayings by the signs which they did.
17 John 21:25 And here are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written every one of them, not even the world, according to my opinion, would contain the books which should be written.
