   Verse Questions:
        Mark 16:17
Why do people have a problem with these last few verses in Mark? My pastor said they are not even supposed to be in there. Can someone explain this to me?

If you look at the verses in the context of the whole scriptures, Jesus was with the 11 just after coming out of the tomb and He had just given them the great commission ... to share the good news with the world. In that day, this good news was BRAND NEW ... very different from OT life with laws, sacrifices, etc. I believe the signs were to prove that the apostles were legitimate. Just saying something wasn't enough because it was so radical and different from the old way. Although faith was always the way to Christ, as NT saints, we aren't under the law. We are FREE in Christ. God may have needed a way to prove the apostles were from Him and using signs would get the attention of the people. Just my 2 cents worth ...
