People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:1


Mr 16:1 The Resurrection SUMMARY OF MARK 16: The Women at the Tomb. The Empty Sepulcher. The Message of the Angel. Mary Magdalene Sees the Risen Lord. The Message to the Disciples. Seen of Two Disciples at Emmaus. Appears to the Eleven. Rebukes Their Unbelief. Gospel for All the World. Received into Heaven. When the sabbath was past. Compare Mt 28:1-17 Lu 24:1-11 Joh 20:1-10. As Mark's account is peculiar in some things, I add some notes. The Sabbath ended at sunset; the women then made their preparations to visit the tomb at dawn. Might come and anoint him. This shows that they did not expect his resurrection. The Jews were wont, as a mark of honor, to surround the body in the tomb with fragrant spices. Nicodemus had brought spices (Joh 19:39,40). Perhaps the women did not know this; perhaps they wished, in addition, to render their own loving service.
