Mark 16 is the final chapter of the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.It begins with the discovery of the empty tomb by Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome. There they encounter a man dressed in white who announces the Resurrection of Jesus. In this 12-verse passage, the author refers to Jesus' appearances to Mary Magdalene, two disciples, and then the Eleven (the Twelve Apostles minus Judas). The text concludes with the Great Commission, declaring that believers that have been baptized will be saved while non-believers will be condemned, and pictures Jesus taken to Heaven and sitting at the Right Hand of God.
