  • "The Authenticity of Mark 16:9-20," Jim Snapp II, Minister, Curtisville Christian Church, IN.
    • "I believe that the empirical evidence supports the view that the Long Ending was contained in the Gospel of Mark in the form in which it was first produced for distribution in the church, and that it was accepted as Scripture everywhere except in one Egyptian locale (probably Alexandria), where - due to an accident or a copyist's misinterpretation - it was temporarily lost."

    • "It is to our churches, and to us as we are, that the Great Commission is entrusted today. It is up to us to receive it and be faithful to it. We count with the promise of the last mandate: "I am with you always, to the end of the age.""
