4.5.15 Resurrection Day!

  • Mark 16:1-8 The Resurrection
  • gty.org –> “Confidence in God’s Word”
  • Mark 16: 9-20 is not part of the original Bible… it was added in because the old churches were uncomfortable not having a conclusion to the gospel of Mark
  • GOD USES THE LEAST LIKELY OF INDIVIDUALS
  • the woman suffered from disbelief (they went to anoint Jesus even though he told them repeatedly that he would rise again)
  • they suffered from displaced trust (they were looking for help from human agents- to roll away the tombstone)
  • they suffered from disobedience (the angel of the Lord told them to go and tell but they fled and told no one because they were afraid)
  • fear of being rejected
  • the women in the story is us
  • Mark ends with ambiguity
  • because who is called to continue?

Love, Galbi
