Mark 16:1-8 (Mark 16:1-8)

Marcus Nelson, 21st April 2019
Part of the Ad hoc sermon series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The stone and the guard said "no entrance" but could not enforce "no exit". Peter might have thought that Jesus wouldn't wish to see him again but Jesus is so much bigger than we are. He told the women he wished to see Peter and he re-commissioned him. Jesus does not treat us as our sins deserve.

Mark 16:1–8 (Listen)

16:1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
