An Unusual Ending

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 8

Mark 16:8  (ID: 2948)

Mark ends his Gospel by describing the frightened reaction of the women after they discovered the empty tomb. This ending may seem abrupt, but Alistair Begg points out its consistency with Mark’s brisk writing style throughout the entire book. Just as the women were confronted with the Good News of the resurrection, we too must consider and respond.


8And 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.
