Wesley's Notes for Mark 16:3


16:3 Who shall roll us away the stone - This seems to have been the only difficulty they apprehended. So they knew nothing of Pilate's having sealed the stone, and placed a guard of soldiers there.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:3


Mr 16:3 Who shall roll us away the stone? They were not aware of the Jewish rulers which had gone to Pilate and secured the sealing of the stone and the setting of the watch over the tomb (Mt 27:62-66), and their only anxiety was how they would get the great stone, with which the rock-cut sepulcher was closed, rolled away.

Discussion for Mark 16

    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.

    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 !!!

    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.

    this scripture is so powerful yet not received in faith, for by teaching the whole truth of gods word , Gods word will be confirmed by healing miracles and many signs and wonders as in the days of jesus, I have and do witness these miracles often, as all born again Christians should, God bless all who believe obey and search for the real truth, God is willing to heal when we obey.
