Mark 16:5-6

Context
16:5 Then 1  as they went into the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe 2  sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 16:6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. 3  He has been raised! 4  He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

2 sn Mark does not explicitly identify the young man dressed in a white robe as an angel (though the white robe suggests this), but Matthew does (Matt 28:2).

3 sn See the note on Crucify in 15:13.

4 tn The verb here is passive (ἠγέρθη, hgerqh). This “divine passive” (see ExSyn 437-38) points to the fact that Jesus was raised by God.
