Conclusion of Mark’s Gospel

Yesterday we finished reading through the gospel of Mark in our Adult Bible Reading class. The gospel concludes with the astonishing discovery that Christ’s tomb is empty.

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. Mark 16 v 6-7 (ESV)

The empty tomb and the reality of Christ’s resurrection from the dead revolutionised the lives of his disciples in the 1st Century AD. ┬áIt still has the power to do the same for us.

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. Romans 6 v 3-4 (ESV)

What does the Bible mean by being “baptised into Christ Jesus”? What does walking in “newness of life” look like? Drop us a line or pay us a visit on a Sunday morning and learn with us.
