[Mark 16]

     {Mar 16:1-8 & Mat 28:1-8 & Luk 24:1-8, 12 & Joh 20:1-10 Dawn and very early Sun.}

     16:1 And when* the Sabbath had elapsed, Mary the Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome bought spices, in order that they might come and might anoint him. 16:2 And exceedingly early in the morning on the first day of the week, they are coming upon the tomb when* the sun had risen. 16:3 And they were saying to themselves, Who will be rolling away the stone from the door of the tomb for us? 16:4 And looking up, they view that the stone has been rolled away; for* it was extremely great. 16:5 And entering into the tomb, they saw a young-man sitting at the right side, having been dressed in a white robe, and they were utterly amazed.

     16:6 Now he says to them, DoĎ not be utterly amazed. YouĎ are seeking Jesus, the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He was raised. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him. 16:7But goĎ away; say to his disciples and Peter, He precedes youĎ into Galilee. YouĎ will be seeing him there, like he said to youĎ. 16:8 And they went out and fled from the tomb. Now trembling and astonishment were holding them, and they said nothing to anyone; for* they were afraid.

     {Mar 16:9-11 & Mat 28:9-10 & Luk 24:9-11 & Joh 20:11-18.}

     16:9 Now having risen* in the morning on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary the Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 16:10 Having traveled on, she reported to those who had been with him, who were mourning and weeping. 16:11 And when* they heard that he is alive and had been seen by her, they disbelieved.

     {Mat 28:11-15 Sun. Morning.}

     {Mar 16:12-13 & Luk 24:13-35 & 1Co 15:5 Sun. Afternoon.}

     16:12 Now after these things, he was manifested in a different form to two out of them while*they are walking, traveling into the rural-area. 16:13 And they went away and reported it to the rest, but they did not believe those men.

     {Mar 16:14 & Luk 24:36-43 & Joh 20:19-25 Sun. Evening.}

     16:14 And later, while reclining at a meal, he was manifested to the eleven themselves and he reproached their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him, that he had been raised.

     {Joh 20:26-31 & 1Co 15:5 Sun. after resurrection.}{Joh 21:1-25 Sea of Galilee.}{Mat 28:16-17 & 1Co 15:6 Mountain in Galilee.}

     {Mar 16:15-18 & Mat 28:18-20 & Luk 24:46-47 Mountain in Galilee; The Great Commission.}

     16:15 And he said to them, When* youĎ travel into all the world, preachĎ the good-news to all creation. 16:16He who believes and is immersed* will be saved, but he who disbelieves {Or: disobeys} will be condemned.

     16:17Now these signs will be following those who have believed: they will be casting out demons in my name; they will be speaking in new languages; 16:18they will be lifting up serpents and even if they drink anything deadly, it may never* harm them; they will lay hands upon thesick and they will be well.

     {Luk 24:44-49 & Acts 1:3-8 & 1Co 15:7 Jerusalem.}

     {Mar 16:19-20 & Luk 24:50-53 & Acts 1:9-12 Olivet, between Jerusalem and Bethany.}

     16:19 Therefore indeed, the Lord, after he had spoken to them, was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 16:20 Now those apostles went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working together with them, and confirming the word through the signs that followed. Amen.
