The Story Continues
July 19, 2019 • Mark 16:1-8
In the closing chapter of Mark, we follow Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome as they discover the empty tomb. The scene is one of utter shock and bewilderment, as the women learn of Jesus’ triumph over death. Yet soon after this, the gospel of Mark abruptly ends. It feels like the story is unresolved. Mark leaves us wanting to know more, curious about what happened next. But Mark’s job is done. He has achieved his goal of revealing the Son of God to us and witnessing about what the Messiah came to do. Yet the story is not over. Discover what Mark is calling us to do now that we recognize Jesus Christ for who he really is and understand what he came to do.
