Mark Chapter 16

Summary of Chapter

A most astonishing thing has just happened. Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb where Jesus was buried after being crucified to see if they could prevail upon the roman guards to allow them to anoint Jesus' body with oils. My guess is that they knew there was no possible way they would have been allowed to do this. However, when they arrived, they found that the tomb was empty. They ran to tell the other disciples, who did not believe them. Jesus then appears to them and rebukes them for not believing the women. He had, afterall, tried to tell them this would happen. He then gives the commission to the eleven remaining apostles to begin spreading Christianity across the earth, and leaves in a most magnificent way.
