Last part: Jesus’ death and the events after it

Mark chapter 15

Women who loved Jesus

Verses 40-41

These women knew Jesus well. They knew him in both Galilee and Jerusalem.

These women did not leave Jesus when he died. They were not very near the *cross. But they still saw his death.

These women also watched while the men buried Jesus’ dead body (Mark 15:47). This happened on the Friday.

These same women would return there on the Sunday (Mark 16:1). They found that Jesus’ dead body was not there.

They saw all these events. They loved Jesus. So they did not want to leave him. They were all very sad because of his death. But in the end, God did not disappoint them.

Many bad things happen in believers’ lives. But in the end, God never disappoints anyone who believes him.

Next part: Joseph from Arimathea
