Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned, and said to him, "Rabboni!" - which means Master. Jesus said to her, "Do not touch me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them: I am ascending to my Father, who is your Father, to my God, who is your God."

You know how God anointed Jesus the Nazarean with Holy Spirit and power. He went about doing good and healing all who were under the devil's power, because God was with him; we are witnesses of all that he did throughout the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem itself. Yet they put him to death by hanging him on a wooden cross. But God raised him to life on the third day and let him manifest himself, not to all people, but to the witnessesthat were chosen beforehand by God-to us who ate and drank with him after his resurrection from death.
But God raised him to life and released him from the pain of death, because it was impossible for him to be held in the power of death.
