Does Mark 16 Belong In The Bible?

Q. I have heard that Mark 16:9-20 does not belong in the Bible.  When I looked this up on the internet, it would appear that many people hold to that idea also but go on to say that the fact that it appears in most Bibles is no problem as it does not affect and doctrinal beliefs.  Now, I’m no scholar nor to I even remotely have a handle on history but I would think that this would cause a problem.

The Will Of My Father

Q. I would appreciate an explanation of Matt. 7:21 in relationship to salvation. If you accept Christ’s gift of grace, and turn your life over to him,  can you lose your salvation if  you don’t do the will of God?

A Question on Daniel 9:27

Q. In the book of Daniel, right before the 70th week, Israel will sign a 7year peace covenant with the many.  Who are the many?  Also my preacher said the 7 year peace treaty will be floating around and all the anti-christ will have to do is sign it.  Do you know if one has already been written and is just waiting for a signature? On the news a while back ago they spoke of a treaty between Israel and another country but Israel would not sign a ten year treaty because it was always broken before ten years was up.  I believe the other people were palestinians but not sure. What are your thoughts?

Understanding Mark 8:22-26

Q. Re: Mark 8:22-26.  Jesus, as Creator of everything,could have healed this guy all at once without even touching him.  So He must have had a reason for doing it in stages like that, and for putting it in the Bible.  What is it?  Many thanks for your wisdom & patience.

Sons Of Absalom

Q. Your site is very informative and a blessing. I have a question regarding the account in 2 Samuel 14:27 which states that Absalom had three sons and one daughter, whose name was Tamar (his sister had the same name, 2 Sam. 13:1). Then we read in 2 Sam. 18:18 that Absalom says “I have no son to carry on my name,” so he named a monument after himself.   How can this be understood?

Damascus’ Date With Destruction

Q. Is there a specific Agricultural season mentioned as to the timing of the Destruction of Damascus? “It shall be as when the harvester gathers the grain.” Is that the Bible’s way of making a General statement about Harvesting or can we take that literally to be when the wheat is actually harvested in Israel?

Anti-Christ’s Origin?

Q. Rev. 2:13 says

I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives.

Could this verse possibly give us a clue as to where the anti-christ comes from, “where satan’s throne is” and “where satan lives” ?

The Withering Fig Tree

Q. I was wondering why in the Gospel of Mark, generally characterized by using the word “immediately”, the fig tree cursed by the Lord did not appear to have withered until the following day whereas in Matthew, not necessarily a book of “speed”, the fig tree withered immediately.
