comment Did Mark intend to end his gospel at 16:8?
@MatthewMiller For my own part, while I'm pretty convinced that the "long ending" is a later addition to the text, I have no strong convictions as to whether the gospel was intended to end at 16:8 or if there was another lost ending along the lines of what we find in Matthew (so James Edwards in the Pillar series).

comment Did Mark intend to end his gospel at 16:8?
@MatthewMiller Thanks for adding your answer. I do think Mark uses key words at points to link ideas (e.g. the "torn" heavens and the "torn" curtain), so I don't dismiss offhand a possible connection between the "young man" who flees and the one at the tomb (which Joel Marcus considers and rejects). That said, even if these connections are real, I'm not convinced they necessitate the conclusion that 16:8 ends the gospel, and preclude the possibility of a re-union in Galilee. I'm particularly leery of projecting modern techniques like an "open ending" back onto ancient literature.

comment Why did Jesus enter Jerusalem on a donkey?
It's interesting when Jehu is anointed king, people spread their cloaks out before him; but he seems to be on foot as best I can tell.

comment What is Jesus' purpose in asking about Psalm 110?
I'd been reading a couple books on Mark lately that assume a low Christology, indeed saw your recent question and it reminded me that I had wanted to ask about this. :)

comment Acts 16:16: Meaning of πύθωνος (Textus Receptus) and πύθωνα (NA28)
@Davïd Yeah, as well, Pervo sees πνεῦμα πύθωνα as redundant - πύθωνα already containing the idea of a spirit - and thinks that explains the correction to πύθωνος in D and P45.
