Easter Day – The beginning of Mark's version of the good news tells of Jesus being baptised in the River Jordan, and it continues at a rattling pace to describe event after event in the life and ministry of Jesus. The earliest versions of the manuscript end abruptly at Chapter 16 verse 8, with three women running away from an empty tomb, too frightened to pass on the message that Jesus had risen from the dead and would be seen again in Galilee. Why did he stop right there? It is the writer's invitation to us, to take up the story where he left off and share the good news announced by the messenger at the empty tomb. We are redirected back to thinking about the beginning of Jesus' ministry in Galilee, and the new social reality called the reign of God.
Mark 16: 1-8
