Jesus Appears to Two Disciples

12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Mark 16:12

Commentary on Mark 16:9-13

(Read Mark 16:9-13)

Better news cannot be brought to disciples in tears, than to tell them of Christ's resurrection. And we should study to comfort disciples that are mourners, by telling them whatever we have seen of Christ. It was a wise providence that the proofs of Christ's resurrection were given gradually, and admitted cautiously, that the assurance with which the apostles preached this doctrine afterwards might the more satisfy. Yet how slowly do we admit the consolations which the word of God holds forth! Therefore while Christ comforts his people, he often sees it needful to rebuke and correct them for hardness of heart in distrusting his promise, as well as in not obeying his holy precepts.

13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
