Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Mark 16:8a (NLT)
The women [Mary Magdalene and Salome and Mary the mother of James] fled from the tomb, trembling and bewildered, saying nothing to anyone because they were too frightened to talk. [1]

The most reliable early manuscripts of the Gospel of Mark end at verse 8. Other manuscripts include various endings to the Gospel. A few include both the “shorter ending” & the “longer ending”. The majority of manuscripts include the “longer ending” immediately after verse 8.


Verse 2 tells us it was very early, at sunrise. This scene occurs a few moments after the previous pictures & so is at the same time of day.

The rising sun (in the east, which is behind the viewer) can be seen tinging the edges of the clouds with orange light. The first sunlight is also visible on the edges of the background rocks & the edges of the figures in this scene.

From left to right: Salome, Mary (wife of Cleopas – Joseph & James Little’s mother – sister of Mary (mother of Jesus)) & Mary Magdalene.

This scene forms part of the Easter series, from Mark’s Gospel.

I have split the verse into two parts, so that I can draw this scene, & still have one left to represent the “shorter ending” of Mark’s Gospel.

The characters, clothing, scenery, & colours are all taken from previous scenes, to preserve continuity.

Notice the small opening of the tomb, which is making the three figures of the woman stoop as they emerge. Notice also that Salome (the woman in front) is picking up her shopping bag, which she was carrying in scene 02 – Stone, but which she discarded on entering the tomb in scene 03 – Angel.

Here is the scene without the figures in the foreground.
