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

  • Apolinar Gomez
    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

    Tb:There is only One Message and that is THE Gospel The Way of Salvation. The Good News. We can tell what kind of Tree it is by The Fruit it produces. We are to Help,Guide,Teach,Exhort One another. We are like Road Signs pointing in the same Direction:To The Cross,To His Word. If The Fruit is Drying up We need to Give it Water.
  • Tb
    Do not judge anothers reasoning. We all have been given a different message that is put in our life for what ever reason. What i get is not the same as you get.
  • A disciple
    "He that is of God, hears God's words!" There are many voices in the world; and none is without meaning: there is one father of lies; who is also the author of opposition, contradiction, hatred and hostility against the Word. "Try the spirits, whether they are of God." A big mouth full of words does not make void the things of the Spirit; any more than is arrogancy and pride, power and authority.

    Jacob - you don't believe in God, do you ...............

    To those who love Jesus the Lord:

    In the measure that man loves the Lord and is willing to humble himself, fear, seek and obey God, God will reveal Himself to man.

    Jeremiah 29:13 "and you will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart."
