Mark 16:8

Mark 16:8

Today's verse is the strange anticlimax of Mark's Gospel. Many scholars consider that this is the last verse Mark wrote personally; as most of the early copies of the book end here.

Mark 16:9-11

Mark 16:9-11

This last section of Mark's Gospel (16:9-20), comments on the disciple's astonishing refusal to believe that Jesus was alive.

Mark 16:12-13

Mark 16:12-13

This reflects Luke 24:13-35 in which Jesus appeared incognito to two loyal followers walking back home from Jerusalem on Resurrection Sunday.

Mark 16:14

Mark 16:14

The story in Luke 24:41-43 does not have the stern rebuke that is indicated here. However the fact was that the disciples were not believing, nor were their hearts filled with joy.

Mark 16:15-16

Mark 16:15-16

This passage echoes Matthew 28:18-20; which we know as the Great Commission.

Mark 16:17-18

Mark 16:17-18

Signs are not designed to be objects of wonder in their own right: their job is to point out the right way to go.

Mark 16:19-20

Mark 16:19-20

Although Mark probably did not pen the final 11 verses of the Gospel, this final summary bridges the gap between Jesus' life and the early church.
