Thank Goodness For The Next Chapter

On reading Mark 15:

Part of me really dislikes reading this chapter in isolation from the next chapter because it is so solemn and sad. But I believe it is so important to feel the whole weight of what Jesus did and to really feel the depth and thank goodness for the rest of the story where hope and joy comes in plenty. Thank goodness he rose (even though I know that's not specifically in this chapter).
