**1 Cor 15:14; 17-19** 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied. **Mark 16:1** When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him. **(Where were the disciples and where were the crowds?)** **1. No one was expecting Jesus to be resurrected.** **Mark 8:31-32** 31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And He was **stating the matter plainly.** And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. **Mark 9:31-32** 31 For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later." 32 **But they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him.** **Mark 10:32-34** And again He took the twelve aside and began to tell them what was going to happen to Him, 33 saying, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles. 34 "They will mock Him and spit on Him, and scourge Him and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again." **Mark 16:10-14** 10 She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. 11 When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, **they refused to believe it.** 12 After that, He appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking along on their way to the country. 13 They went away and reported it to the others, **but they did not believe them either.** 14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them **for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.** **Luke 24:10-11** 10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles. 11 But these words **appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.** **Mark 8:31-37** 31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And He was **stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.** 33 But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, **"Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."** 34 And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he **must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.** 35 "For whoever wishes to **save his life** will lose it, but whoever **loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.** 36 "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37 "For what will a man give in exchange **for his soul?** **Mark 9:31-37** 31 For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later." 32 But **they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him. 33 They came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house, He began to question them, "What were you discussing on the way?" 34 But **they kept silent**, for on the way they had **discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.** 35 Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, "If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all." 36 Taking a child, He set him before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them, 37 "Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me." **Mark 10:32-45** And again He took the twelve aside and began to tell them what was going to happen to Him, 33 saying, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles. 34 "They will mock Him and spit on Him, and scourge Him and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again." 35 James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, came up to Jesus, saying, **"Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask of You."** 36 And He said to them, "What do you want Me to do for you?" 37 They said to Him, "Grant that we may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your glory." 38 But Jesus said to them, **"You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"** 39 They said to Him, **"We are able."** And Jesus said to them, **"The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.** **40 "But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those for whom it has been prepared."** 41 Hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John. 42 Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. 43 "But it is not this way among you, **but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant;** 44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all. 45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." **Luke 22:24-34** 24 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest. 25 And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called 'Benefactors.' 26 "But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. 27 "For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves. 28 "You are those who have stood by Me in My trials; 29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 31 "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; 32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." 33 But he said to Him, "Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!" 34 And He said, "I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me." Rom 1:18 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, **Mark 16:7** 7 "But go, **tell His disciples and Peter,** 'He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.'" **Rom 10:9-13** 9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED." 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; 13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."
He is Risen
