The earliest manuscripts of Mark’s Gospel end with verse 8 of chapter 16—an abrupt conclusion that surprises us. Yet Alistair Begg argues for its authenticity, as it fits Mark’s overarching pace, pattern, and purpose. Mark’s Gospel moves fast, shifting from place to place, and a pattern of fear in response to Jesus’ power recurs throughout, culminating in the women’s fear at His resurrection. This sudden ending, with the women’s fearful reaction, forces us to wrestle with our own response to Jesus.
