It is believed the the end of the gospel of Mark may have been added to the original text and was not intended by Mark himself. Doesn’t this greatly affect the Biblical narrative? Frank Turek explains.

    Mark's gospel is the earliest that dates in AD 50's. Mark's gospel ends on Chapter 16: 20. I'm aware of a few ommissios in different codices. Omission only means that something was left out. I'm aware the earliest manuscripts are the Codex Sinaiticus & Vaticanus. Many different Christian bibles put Chapter 16:9-20 in italics or footnote it because it was omitted from these codices. Codex Vaticanus leaves a complete blank area where Mark Chapter 16:9-20 should be written before Luke's gospel. It's a blank area. The scribes never had blank areas until this section between books in the scribe of Vaticanus. This PROVES that there were chapters after Mark 16:8. Besides the areas where you find omissions in a few codices, it does not compromise it's canonicity. Especially the Gospels because they're synoptic.

    This video is false. The Gospel is true. All manuscripts have the full ending, 1000s of them, all of them in Israel & Rome. Only 2 don't….& they were found in Egypt & belong to the Vatican.

    I find it difficult to believe the Christian god would communicate in such a way as to allow human hands to alter his words if he actually existed. For Christians who use the arguement from Inteligent design, this seems like a huge oversight. If god wanted us to know his words, then he would have done so in a way that humans are not left to canonize what things god actually said.

    Of course it can because it agrees with the rest of Scripture. The ONLY reason people question it is because they reject baptism as the removal press of sin, even though Acts bears it out, as well as the epistles.

    Plus some of the early church fathers quoted these scriptures, so it was there! The Lord is ultimately in control of His word and if it was not meant to be there…it wouldn't be.

    Franks states here that the verse about snake-handling is the only part of Mark’s ending that is not taught elsewhere in the scripture. That’s not entirely true. The verse of Luke 10:19 has Jesus stating that He will give us “power to tread on serpents and scorpions,” and in Acts 28:3-6, we see Paul handling a viper that bit his hand and yet suffers to ill effects afterward. Now when reading that latter text in proper context, we see that Paul did not deliberately seek out the snake for the purpose of showing off, but was only forced to handle it after it unexpectedly attacked him when he was gathering wood for the fire. Likewise, the earlier statement from Jesus in Luke’s gospel should not imply or suggest that we deliberately seek out snakes and scorpions to walk over, but rather shows that we can have faith that God would keep us safe if we were forced into such a predicament against our wills.

    Hence, I’ve no doubt that the statement which Jesus makes in Mark 16:18 also shows that if we are thrown into a snake pit or poisoned against our will, God will likewise protect us. But I agree with Frank that we should not deliberately drink poison or handle snakes for the purpose of showing off because that would be an act of testing thy God, which Jesus is clearly against as per Matthew 4:6-7 and Luke 4:9-12.

    All Christians that believe it's accurate should start playing with snakes. (this is a bad joke. please use common sense and avoid snakes)

    People will find any excuse to discredit the authenticity of the New Testament documents. In the book reinventing Jesus, three different scholars easily debunk all of these conspiracy claims related to Jesus without having to be ad hoc or beat around the bat. And also, the supposed claim that we must have every word preserved or else the faith in under fire is absurd. The apostles never took this view nor did the early church fathers. They were only concerned with preserving the faith. In no way were they concerned with preserving every letter of all time. And the fact that we don’t have this longer ending of Mark really does no harm to the New Testament and this is what scholars would agree on. The resurrection is still talked about in mark, that the tomb was empty and they were going to see the resurrected Jesus.

    The word of God cannot be added nor subtract.But why did some ancient early church fathers /scribes added to the word of God.Will they not be accountable to God for what they did one day on judgement day? Will they go to hell?

    Huhn… sorry, we have earlier manuscripts. I've already TIRED of seeing maunuscripts with missing verses, that supposed to be "early". Remember: if it has chapters and verses – then it's not early enough, earliest gospels are not even in the chronological order, so can it miss some verses if verses are not even numbered? Whatever they use is too late to be called early.

    Proof that scribes were not guided by the Holy Spirit. Preservation was subject to subjectivity.

    Mark 16;9-20 is not taught in the Bible anywhere .Handle  venomous snakes and drink poison? seriously? Inerrant is taken apart but no problem nothing to see here, no worries.

    90 percent of the manuscripts. Only 2 manuscripts don't have the ending. A majority of church fathers and the earliest church fathers attest to its authenticity. Plus it was the recognized text for 1900 years.

    It also says a sign of being a true believer is that he can drink poison and will not be harmed. Frank, would you have anything to worry about if you drank a full glass of anti-freeze?
