The Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark is traditionally attributed to the writings of a disciple of Peter, and not a disciple of Jesus himself. It is one of the four canonical Gospels of the New Testament Bible.

Of particular interest regarding the Jesus tomb is the Gospel's focus on the last week of the life of Jesus, which concludes with the revelation of an empty tomb, signaling the resurrection of Jesus:

    When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. They were saying among themselves, "Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?" for it was very big. Looking up, they saw that the stone was rolled back. (Mark 16:1,16:2, 16:3, 16:4)

Recently, scholars have turned to this Gospel in considering the names of family members related to Jesus. More specifically, it has been found that the name Jose has been attributed to the son of Mary, possibly the brother of Jesus"

    Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Joses, saw where he was laid (Mark 15:47)

Some of the details surrounding the preparations of the burial of Jesus, as found in the canoniccal Bible, have been linked to second burial traditions commonplace during first century.
