People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:16


Mr 16:16 He that believeth. Believeth the gospel message; believes in Christ as his Savior. And is baptized. These are the condition of pardon; faith in Christ and obedience to his command. If any one has not faith enough in Christ to obey him, he has not faith enough to be saved. He that believeth not. Remains in a state of unbelief. Such have no promise. See Joh 3:18.

Discussion for Mark 16

  • Judith Douglas
    May God help our unbelief.may the body of Christ go forth and do the great commission Jesus instructed his followers to do.
  • Anne
    The book of Mark 16 elaborate on the resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as the great commission from the Lord to the belivers to preach the gospel to every creation of the world. Everyone is called to evangelise unto all regardless their culture or creed. Tell the world of the love of God that He gave His only son to die at the cross to take away our sins and there is life or judgement to all.
  • MockingBird
    I cannot go into all the world : I have no means as of now to do that : So I believe that this scripture is telling me to go into all of the world into the part that I am in now. I truly believe that Jesus Christ should be made known through the life that I am living : Not only to speak of Him to others : But to be as He is and I am still working on that : I can only tell and do for as much as I know. I am growing a little bit every day . Praise God ! Being able to tell of Jesus on this comment section of the King James Version is also my world and what I tell all of you. What also all of you tell me !!! No telling of whom is receiving this over the Enternet ! Probably all over the world !!!! Pretty Cool : Huh !!!
  • Tarat
    We are all responsible to speak God's Word and spread the gospel good news far and wide. The image shown shows a man with a fist indicating a forceful approach - he should have an open hand indicating an invitation or a gentler approach . This image, although he is excited makes it look like go's going to force it.
  • Joyce
