Four Gospels One Resurrection: A Greek Reader of the Four Gospel Accounts of the Resurrection

In honor of Easter I created a Greek reader for the resurrection stories in the Gospels.

  • Matthew 28:1-15
  • Mark 16:1-8
  • Luke 24:1-12
  • John 20:1-18 

The text used:

Michael W. Holmes, The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (Lexham Press, 2010).

For easy navigation, the table of contents is clickable, so you can go directly to the passage you one to read.


All words occurring less than 31 time in the Greek New Testament are contextual glosses.

Verbs are given with the lexical form and parsed in the following way: Tense, Voice, Mood, Person, Number (i.e. A.A.I 3s = Aorist Active Indicative Third Singular). Participles follow the pattern: Tense, Voice, Case, Case, Gender, Number. Nouns and Adjectives are given the lexical form with the article for easier parsing.

Contextual glosses are determined from:

Arndt, William, Frederick W. Danker, and Walter Bauer. A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2000.

The frequency is determined from Accordance Bible Software.
