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.

    MARK 16:16 HE THAT BELIEVETH --AND IS BAPTIZED--SHALL BE SAVED BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED *** MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE --AND THE GOSPELS--THE SAME SHALL SAVE IT

    V15, We must GO and preach the Gospel to All the world, no one should be left out. Don't preach earthly things, we must preach the Gospel so that people can be saved, if they repent.

    My favorite chapter is 16 and verse 15 which says "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved he that believes not shall be damed
    Two requirrments for salvation one is to believe and the other is baptism in JESUS name
