Bible: Mark 15:42-16:18

Jesus’ Burial

15:42 Now 1  when evening had already come, since it was the day of preparation (that is, the day before the Sabbath), 2  15:43 Joseph of Arimathea, a highly regarded member of the council, 3  who was himself looking forward to 4  the kingdom of God, 5  went boldly to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 6  15:44 Pilate was surprised that he was already dead. He 7  called the centurion and asked him if he had been dead for some time. 15:45 When Pilate 8  was informed by the centurion, 9  he gave the body to Joseph. 15:46 After Joseph 10  bought a linen cloth 11  and took down the body, he wrapped it in the linen and placed it in a tomb cut out of the rock. 12  Then 13  he rolled a stone across the entrance 14  of the tomb. 15:47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where the body 15  was placed.

The Resurrection

16:1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought aromatic spices 16  so that they might go and anoint him. 16:2 And very early on the first day of the week, at sunrise, they went to the tomb. 16:3 They had been asking each other, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb? 16:4 But 17  when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled back. 16:5 Then 18  as they went into the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe 19  sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 16:6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. 20  He has been raised! 21  He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him. 16:7 But go, tell his disciples, even Peter, that he is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you.” 16:8 Then 22  they went out and ran from the tomb, for terror and bewilderment had seized them. 23  And they said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

16:9

The Longer Ending of Mark

24 

[[Early on the first day of the week, after he arose, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had driven out seven demons. 16:10 She went out and told those who were with him, while they were mourning and weeping. 16:11 And when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.

16:12 After this he appeared in a different form to two of them while they were on their way to the country. 16:13 They went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them. 16:14 Then he appeared to the eleven themselves, while they were eating, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him resurrected. 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16:16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who does not believe will be condemned. 16:17 These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; 25  16:18 they will pick up snakes with their hands, and whatever poison they drink will not harm them; 26  they will place their hands on the sick and they will be well.”
