Mark 16 Bible Study
In Mark 16:1-20, after the Sabbath is over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome brought some spices to anoint Jesus’ body. They were discussing among themselves who will roll away the large stone that block the entrance of the tomb. Upon arriving, they found that the stone had been rolled away and a young man was sitting on the right side inside the tomb. The young man was dressed in a white robe. He told the women that Jesus has already risen and will go ahead of them into Galilee as he had told them. Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene, whom he had cast out 7 demons. She told others who had been with him that Jesus had risen to life but they did not believe her. Later, Jesus appeared to the two disciples who were on their way to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35). He also appeared to the 11 disciples when they were eating. Jesus commanded his disciples to preach the good news unto all nations. Those who believe in Jesus will drive out demons in his name, speak in new tongues, pick up snakes, drink deadly poison but not hurt, and lay hands on the sick people and they will get healed. After that, Jesus was ascended into the heaven and sit on the right hand side of God. The disciples preached the gospel and confirmed the message by performing miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit.
