descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door,

4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I

Became as dead men = They pass out
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where
the Lord lay.
The angel answered and said unto the women
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead;
and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him:
lo, I have told you.
He is not here: for he is risen
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy;
and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them,
saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain
where Jesus had appointed them.
So the keepers took the money and lied
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto
me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:
