Mark 16:9-15

Mark weaves Jesus’ three appearances to his disciples into one. Mary and the two disciples know him and run to tell the others, but they do not believe. Jesus appears to the disciples directly and admonishes them for their unbelief. Once said, he commissions them to go out and proclaim the good news.

I see a very human response: fear and silence. Perhaps I see my response. Yet I must believe you. Your Spirit would have brought me up and out of myself to speak the truth. Isn’t that what you do for me today?
