Mark Chapter 16

Mark 16:2

mar 16:2

And very early

For the order of events on the day of the resurrection, and for the order of our Lord's appearances after His resurrection: see

(See Scofield) - (Mat 28:1).

(See Scofield) - (Mat 28:9).

Mark 16:6

mar 16:6

Ye seek

Jesus ye seek -- the Nazarene, the crucified; He arose! He is not here! The tone is of triumph.

Compare (Psa 2:4).

Mark 16:9

mar 16:9

Now when

The passage from verse 9 (Mar 16:9) to the end is not found in the two most ancient manuscripts, the Sinaitic and Vatican, and others have it with partial omissions and variations. But it is quoted by Irenaeus and Hippolytus in the second or third century.


(See Scofield) - (Mat 28:9).

Mark 16:14

mar 16:14


A collective term, equivalent to "The Sanhedrin," "The Commons," not necessarily implying that eleven persons were present.

See (Luk 24:33); (Co1 15:5); (Mat 28:16);

where "eleven disciples" implies a definite number of persons.

Mark 16:16

mar 16:16


(See Scofield) - (Rom 1:16).
