People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:4

Mr 16:4 Looked. Rather, "looking up". They may have been looking down before, absorbed in the conversation. The tomb was probably above them, cut horizontally in the face of the rock at a slight elevation.

Discussion for Mark 16

  • Anonymous for verse 15
    We are the highest class of all creatures. We have a choice to serve or not to serve. So it is admonishing us to share God's words to everyone, regardless our nation, tongue, people culture. He died for everyone and we are to share that.He is our Lord and Saviour who came to save the world from their sins.
  • Any Lutherans out there? This verse was referenced on my infant baptismal certificate. I was on my to hell until I was born again by power of the Holy Spirit! Then, I decided to follow Jesus example in belierer's baptismNote in the following verses what evidences follow a true believer. Look in the book of Acts to discover shipwrecked Paul's fulfillment of these prophetic verses. Luther risked his life on what the scriptures taught and did not believe the educated religious leaders of his day. The KJV Bible is the most reliable English version out there. Study to know the truth!

    Mark 16 v 16:Do you believe in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ? If you believe why not get baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ? If you do you shall be saved,if you don't you are dammed.

    Joni G the Holy Spirit moves in all peoples including the deaf and lame. People need not hear to be able to believe because the Holy Spirit works in ways beyond our limited human understanding. We that hear and have all of our senses should be all the more humbled by what we do have and give of ourselves all the more. In Jesus name being also Immanuel, Amen.
  • Jacob
    The Lord tells the apostles in Mr 16 to preach the gospel of the Kingdom . Many groups who teach baptismal regeneration misapply this passage by saying that an individual must believe and be baptized in order to be saved. Another of their favorites is Peter speaking to the nation of Israel in Ac 2:38 telling them to repent and be baptized "in the name of Jesus " for the remission of sins. Then they would receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Both of these baptisms are directly associated with the nation of Israel, and not with the Church. The Bible records at least seven types of baptisms.
