Jesus is Risen: Do Not Fear, Tell Others (Mark 15:40-16:8)

Justin Bebb, November 15, 2020
Part of the Mark series, preached at a Midweek Meeting service

Mark 15:40-16:8 | November 15, 2020 | Pastor Justin Bebb “Jesus is Risen: Do Not Fear, Tell Others”

1. Women followed Jesus, but responded to His death in fear. (15:40-41)

2. Joseph of Arimathea responded by acting in bold faith at the death of Jesus. (15:42-47)

3. The women witness the empty tomb, and an angel, but tell no one about it. (16:1-8)

The gospel of Mark: The good news that your salvation does not depend upon you or your faithfulness.
It depends upon the God who won victory over sin and death by suffering and serving.

Mark 15:40–16:8 (Listen)

40 There were also women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome. 41 When he was in Galilee, they followed him and ministered to him, and there were also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.

42 And when evening had come, since it was the day of Preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he should have already died. And summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead. 45 And when he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the corpse to Joseph. 46 And Joseph bought a linen shroud, and taking him down, wrapped him in the linen shroud and laid him in a tomb that had been cut out of the rock. And he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.

16:1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. 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.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
