A Most Unusual Ending

Our Scripture reading comes from Mark 16:1-8. Unlike all the other gospels, Mark does not end his gospel with anybody seeing the resurrected Jesus. The women who visit the tomb Sunday morning to finish anointing Jesus’ body find the empty tomb and are simply told that Jesus has risen from the dead. Why did Mark end his gospel that way and what was he trying to tell us? “A Most Unusual Ending” is part of our “Easter 2023” series.
