Mark's curious ending seems a mystery of sorts and has earned his gospel a reputation as somehow defective in comparison to the others. What kind of way is that to conclude a gospel, with the women running away afraid, saying nothing to anyone? We are left hanging with too many questions. Did the women eventually tell their story? Did they ever find Jesus? If Jesus is risen, where is he now and what is he doing?
