      passage: Acts 6:1-6:7



      Chapter 6

      And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there
      arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their
      widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called
      the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that
      we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren,
      look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy
      Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will
      give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
      And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen,
      a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus,
      and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:
      Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid
      their hands on them. And the word of God increased; and the number of
      the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of
      the priests were obedient to the faith.

      passage: Mark 15:43-16:8



      Chapter 15

      Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for
      the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved
      the body of Jesus. And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead:
      and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been
      any while dead. And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body
      to Joseph. And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him
      in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock,
      and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. And Mary Magdalene
      and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.


      Chapter 16

      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. And very early in the morning the first day of the week,
      they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said
      among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of
      the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled
      away: for it was very great. 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. 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. 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. And they went out quickly,
      and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither
      said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
