EXPERIENCING THE GOSPEL OF MARK

The segments of the past few months have chronicled the final days of Jesus' earthly ministry. They have recounted betrayal, abandonment, false accusations, torture, and burial. Modern readers know about the resurrection, but let's pay careful attention to Mark's version of it.

PART TWENTY-FIVE

End of Mark's account

Mark 16:1-8+

From the October 1999 issue of The Christian Science Journal


16:1-8 When the sabbath was past, the three previously identified women— Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother or James, and Salome, had gone out and bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Jesus. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
