Reading along with us in Mark? Here’s today’s reading:

Mark 16 (ESV)

When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid....Continue Reading

  1. Yay! Jesus is risen!!!!!!

    I’m a little confused on verses 17-18 and all the signs listed there. Are these signs that we should be doing as Christians? Are we doing something wrong if we can’t do these signs? What is Jesus even talking about when he says these things?

  2. Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

  3. Who was the dude dressed in white in the empty tomb
    Always thought it was an angel. If so how about that for an assignment be the first to tell the humans about their resurrected savior and look who was the first to hear the news

    Interesting the first to learn about Jesus birth was shepherds the first to learn of his resurrection was Mary Magdalene

  4. Yes, so glad the story doesn’t end in chapter 15! It is by virtue of His resurrection that He accomplished the victory that makes it possible for Him to be our Savior. And Jim, it was an angel that was in the tomb and gave the message. And Sara, many believe that Mark 16:9 to the end were a postscript written later and were not original to the gospel and thereby not part of inspired Scripture. So these are not signs we need to be concerned with, especially since no other Scriptures validate them as being signs that should be present in every believers life. The Holy Spirit is said to be the deposit guaranteeing our inheritance, so His activity (conviction of sin, desire for the word, obedience and service, His power and guidance, etc) is something to look for in confirming our salvation.
