Ask Your Bible Questions Here!!! / Mark 16:9
« on: September 27, 2011, 11:21:15 AM »
A poster on another board, the topic of which was questioning the authenticity of the last 12 verses in the book of Mark, wrote that it doesn�t really matter because there is no doctrinal teaching in Mark 16:9-20 that cannot be proved elsewhere in agreed Scripture.

I made the mistake of sticking my nose into the discussion by pointing out that actually there is a statement in verse 9, as the KJV and similar versions have it, that is used for a doctrinal teaching that is to be found nowhere else in Scripture. As the KJV translates it, it is the only place that puts the resurrection on the first day of the week. I then suggested that whenever the discussion of seventh day observance versus first day observance comes up, first day proponents usually use the idea of a first day resurrection to justify the change, and when questioned about the day of resurrection, frequently quote Mark 16:9. The poster came back with: �Quote a published author who has done that.� - I have not yet been able to come up with one.  Does anyone here know of one?


re: “What makes you think that she did not go twice each writer telling a different account.”

So you’re saying that Matthew 28:1-10 is referring to a subsequent visit by Mary M. after an earlier visit to the tomb - a visit that John 20:1 is writing about?

me again,

re:  "It sounds like a simple semantic issue. She didn't know where he was, although she had seen him. She only knew that he would be going to Galilee. I see no confusion in this. Am I missing it?"

It would seem so.  In John she says:  "They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him."

This doesn't sound like she knew that he had risen and was alive.   


I'm afraid I don't see how your comments are applicable to the OP.  I wonder if you might explain?

Matthew 28:1-10 says that when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb that she was told by an angel that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee. Matthew then says that she ran "with great joy" to tell the disciples and while on the way that she met the Messiah (this occurred before she got to the disciples).

However, John 20:1 and 2  say that when she came to the tomb and didn’t find the Messiah there, that she ran to the disciples and told them that He had been taken away and that she didn’t know where He was. In Matthew she knew where He was (or at least had been) and where He would be, but in John she didn’t.

 How can this be reconciled?

re: “They will be be cast into the Lake of Fire where "the worm dieth not.’”

OK, so we have immortal worms.  But where does it say that man is inherently immortal?

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
