[1] 38483848    Matt. xxviii. 16.But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain38493849    Vat. ms. omits to the mountain. where Jesus had [2] appointed them.  38503850    Matt. xxviii. 17.And when they saw him, they worshipped him:  but there were of [3] them who doubted.  38513851    Mark xvi. 14.And while they sat there he appeared to them again, and upbraided them for their lack of faith and the hardness of their hearts, those that saw him when he was risen, and believed not.38523852    This seems to be the meaning of the text of the mss.  Ciasca conjecturally emends it by printing in his Arabic text because they after hearts; but this is of no use unless one also ignores the and before believed.

[4] [Arabic, p. 209] 38533853    Matt. xxviii. 18b.Then said Jesus unto them, I have been given all authority in heaven [5] and earth; and as my Father hath sent me, so I also send you.  38543854    John xx. 21b; Mark xvi. 15b.Go now into [6] all the world, and preach my gospel in all the creation; 38553855    Matt. xxviii. 19b.and teach38563856    Or, make disciples of. all the peoples, and [7] baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit; 38573857    Matt. xxviii. 20.and teach them to keep all whatsoever I commanded you:  and lo, I am with you all the days, unto [8] the end of the world.  38583858    Mark xvi. 16.For whosoever believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but [9] whosoever believeth not shall be rejected.  38593859    Mark xvi. 17.And the signs38603860    Not the usual word, although that is used in the Peshitta. which shall attend those that believe in me are these:  that they shall cast out devils in my name; and they [10] shall speak with new tongues; 38613861    Mark xvi. 18.and they shall take up serpents, and if they drink 129deadly poison,38623862    The Arabic translator renders it the poison of death. it shall not injure them; and they shall lay their hands on the diseased, [11] and they shall be healed.  38633863    Luke xxiv. 49b.But ye, abide in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be clothed with power from on high.

[12] 38643864    Mark xvi. 19a; Luke xxiv. 50.And our Lord Jesus, after speaking to them, took them out to Bethany:  and he [13] lifted up his hands, and blessed them.  38653865    Luke xxiv. 51; Mark xvi. 19c.And while he blessed them, he was separated from them, and ascended into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.  [14, 15] 38663866    Luke xxiv. 52.And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:  38673867    Luke xxiv. 53.and at all times they were in the temple, praising and blessing God.  Amen.

[16] 38683868    Mark xvi. 20.And from thence they went forth, and preached in every place; and our Lord helped them, and confirmed their sayings by the signs which they did.38693869    cf. Peshitta.

[17] 38703870    John xxi. 25.And here are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written every one of them, not even the world, according to my opinion, would contain the books which should be written.38713871    In the Borg. ms. the text ends on folio 353a.  On folios 354a-355a are found the genealogies, with the title, Book of the Generation of Jesus, that of Luke following that of Matthew without any break.  Ciasca has told us nothing of the nature of the text.  The Subscription follows on folio 355b.
