Question: Are the Last Twelve Verses of Mark's Gospel Inspired? Answer: One of the most controversial points of Scripture is whether Mark 16:9-20 is actually a part of Scripture. Although it appears in the King James Version, many other translations either label this section as an appendix or leave it in the footnotes as in the controversial Revised Standard Version of the Bible. The Moffatt translation, together with the Goodspeed and others, not only has the long ending found in the King James Version, but it also has mother shorter ending. Since the Bible is a revelation from God about those essential facts which we need to know, but which we have no other way of obtaining, it is very important that we know what constitutes the Bible. If this last portion of Mark's Gospel IS spurious, it is time we learned of the fact. If it is genuine, it is vital that we believe what it contains.
