Long ending of Mark

Mark 16:9-20 (Focus: Long Ending of Mark)

This week we finished our study in the Gospel according to Mark. We affirmed that the last twelve verses of Mark were written by someone other than the author of the Gospel, but that these verses date back to the second century. While we cannot know for certain who wrote them, we do know that they were accepted right away as the unofficial ending of the book.
