Are there twelve verses at the end of the Gospel According to Mark that should not be in there? Various modern scholars say that is the case. What does the Bible teach? What do early church-related writings teach? How can you know the truth about this? Dr. Thiel cites those that believe and those that do not believe that Mark 16:9-20 should be in the Bible. He also cites ancient writers such as Papias of Hieropolis, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus of Lyon to demonstrate whether or not early writings support Mark 16:9-20.
