This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Search The Scriptures —Study 35 — Mark 16:9-20
Study 35 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 16:9-2o
With this lesson, we end the
book of Mark. Tomorrow we will start the book of Judges.
1.What three appearances of the
risen Christ are recorded in these verses? What were the reasons for the rebuke
of verse 14? Is our spiritual perception and growth hindered by the same two
besetting sins? Cf. Heb. 3:12, 13.
2.If we truly believe what is
recorded in verse 19, what challenge and encouragement are there for us in
verses 15 and 20? And what does verse 16 reveal concerning the issue with which
the gospel confronts men, when it is preached? Cf. Rom. 10:11-15
Note. Verses 9-20. “this
section is the so-called “Longer Ending” of Mark, omitted in some MSS….
Therefore, it seems reasonable to see this as an early attempt, known at least
as early as Iranaeus, to “round off” a Gospel whose original ending had become
in some way maimed or lost’.
