RESPONSIVE READING

Mark 16:1-7

LEADER: And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.


PEOPLE: And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.


LEADER: And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?


PEOPLE: And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.


LEADER: And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.


PEOPLE: And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.


ALL: But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
