WM 126: Review: Dillehay on the Ending of Mark
I have posted WM 126: Review: Dillehay on the Ending of Mark. Listen here.
In this episode I review part of a sermon from June 16, 2016 (look at this sermon page to find the entire original message) by Pastor Justin Dillehay of Grace Baptist Church of Hartsville, TN.
I looked up the message after reading Pastor Dillehay's Gospel Coalition article on dealing with textual variants (referenced in WM 123).
This is one of several WMs that have reviewed various contemporary preachers and teachers who reject the authenticity and originality of the traditional ending of Mark (16:9-20). See the WM archives for WMs 4, 35, 44, 60-63, 64, 65, 66.
For more detailed arguments regarding external evidence in defense of Mark's traditional ending, see my article "The Ending of Mark as a Canonical Crisis" in Puritan Reformed Journal Vol. 10, No. 1 (January 2018): 31-54.
