• Discovered by the sisters,

Mark 16:1–8 ESV
1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. 3 And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. 6 And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

:1 What is the purpose of Mark’s 3 sisters going to the grave? To validate the resurrection or anoint the body?
:2 Sunday (Nissan 17th) the leave in the dark () and arrive in the new dawn of humanity! Read and connect it to the resurrection and our confession and repentance.
Psalm 30:5 ESV
5 For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
:3 What are the anxious about? Do you think they knew of the guards & seal over the stone ()? Can you relate? They approach — How can …. And they depart — How could it have been....
:4 Anxiety is often an exercise in futility. Explain. Also, when last did you approach a sobering situation with hopelessness? In order to escape anxiety and hopelessness what is the first thing you need to do? (Hint: read the first 3 words of verse 4).
:5 Seeing a young man in bright white (compare , ; ; ) they are further amazed. Mark & Matthew mention one angel (presumably the spokesman). Mark’s angel is a young man. As Christians, the reality is, the dire situation has already been replaced. We just cannot always see it this clearly. What is needed for us to make the exchange with what we are battling?

:6 What is the message here? Timeline note — what God would do; Here, what God has done. Textual note — not “He has risen” but passive, “He was risen”. A NT emphasis as God’s act (cf. ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ). How does the realization of an empty tomb result in a full faith? DO YOU SEE THE GOSPEL IN VERSE 6?
:7 Timeline note — Mark starts with a rough John the Baptist preparing the way and ends with a gentle young man proclaim the Way prepared. Peter is teh 1st and last disciple mentioned (; ). What is the first action item that an empty tomb elicits? Have you been enlisted? How does not moment forever change the shame and disdain associated with Nazarene and death on a cross? Note also the change of proclamation of the Gospel — before the cross and after the resurrection. (Hint: secrecy was obedience but not is disobedience). Why is Peter singled out? How does this show amazing grace in the face of extraordinary breach of faith? “Going before you” is a military term used of Thucydides leading troops and Polybius uses it for a commander making an advance. The inclusion of Galilee marks Jerusalem as a fruitless doomed temple. In going back to Galilee Jesus heals all disciples and spiritual blindness and recommissions us. Do you need to go back to Galilee? Are your eyes and ears open? Are you taking up the the cross?
:8 What do we do with the message?
:9 The longer ending briefly — (1) The two earliest (fourth century) uncial manuscripts (Sinaiticus and Vaticanus) omit the verses though their respective scribes left some blank space after verse 8, suggesting that they knew of a longer ending but did not have it in the manuscript they were copying. (2) Most all other manuscripts (fifth century on) as well as early versions support the inclusion of verses 9–20. BKC (Vol. 2, p. 193). Wheaton, IL: Victor Books.
