Mr 16:4
16:4 And when they {a} looked, they saw that the stone was
     rolled away: for it was very great.

     (a) When they cast their eyes toward the sepulchre.

Mr 16:5
16:5 And entering into the {b} sepulchre, they saw a young man
     sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment;
     and they were affrighted.

     (b) Into the cave out of which the sepulchre was cut.

Mr 16:9
16:9 {1} Now when [Jesus] was risen early the first [day] of the
     week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he
     had cast seven devils.

 (1) Christ himself appears to Mary Magdalene to reprove the
     disciple's incredulity.

Mr 16:12
16:12 {2} After that he appeared in another form unto two of
      them, as they walked, and went into the country.

 (2) Christ appears to two other disciples and at length to the

Mr 16:14
16:14 {c} Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at
      meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness
      of heart, because they believed not them which had seen
      him after he was risen.

      (c) The evangelist did not consider the chronological
          sequence of events, but rather what took place, which
          he divided into three parts: The first shows how he
          appeared to the women, the second to his disciples,
          the third to his apostles, and therefore he says

Mr 16:15
16:15 {3} And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and
      preach the gospel to {d} every creature.

 (3) The apostles are appointed, and their office is limited to
     them, which is to preach that which they heard from him,
     and to minister the sacraments which Christ has instituted,
     having in addition to this the power to do miracles.
     (d) Not to the Jews only, nor in Judea only, but to all men
         and everywhere: and so must all the apostles do.

Mr 16:17
16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
      shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with {e} new

      (e) Strange tongues, ones which they did not know before.

Mr 16:19
16:19 {4} So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was
      received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

 (4) Christ, having accomplished his office on earth, ascends
     into heaven, from where (the doctrine of his apostles being
     confirmed with signs) he will govern his Church, until the
     world's end.

Mr 16:20
16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord
      working with [them], and confirming {f} the word with
      signs following. Amen.

      (f) That is, the doctrine: therefore doctrine must go
          before and signs must follow after.
