New Year: Mark 15-16 for Oct 26

In Mark 15-16 the Lord's death and Resurrection are described in the same factual vein: "He breathed His last" (15:39) is the same reporting language as "He has risen; He is not here" (16:6): no hype in the language, no showiness of speech. When the women talked (16:11,13), the disciples didn't say something like "sweet story," but the disciples "refused to believe" (16:11) or "they did not believe" (16:13) at first. Later, that would change (16:20).

Interesting how the disciples themselves are the unbelieving ones here. Normally that's the Pharisees' job - not to believe, "because you are not of My sheep" (John 10:26), etc. But here the disciples have a hard time believing! Why is that? -Jonathan
