He is risen! The gospel of the resurrection of Christ is proclaimed directly from the throne of God. This points to the truth that Christ’s work of atonement for our sins was received by God and we are forgiven. And one day we will be raised just as he was raised. Let us live in light of the truth of the resurrection.
The point of the gospel of Mark was to answer the question, ‘Who is Jesus?’ Throughout the letter, there are many responses, and we have arrived at one of the final responses. A secret disciple comes out of the shadows and seeks to honor his Lord.
