Not by everyone today.Well, it is accepted as part of Mark's gospel.
Only one Latin ms has the shorter ending by itself. All the Greek mss which have the shorter ending conflate vs. 9-20 ending right after it.The external evidence (that it is missing in some MSS, and replaced with an alternate ending in others) indicates that there is some uncertainty in tradition on just how Mark's gospel ends.
OK.I already answered that as well as I can.
Those two comments assume the long ending is post those events and not part of the original gospel of Mark.You didn't actually address my observation - your response merely assumes that it is irrelevant.How was my comment begging the question?
Well, it attributes the gospel to Mark.
Because it does? I'm not sure how to answer that. For good measure, it also throws in a reference to Paul surviving a snakebite and refers to the tradition that John drank poison with no ill effects.
"Apples and oranges," so to speak.I will grant that prophetic scriptures are God-breathed, just like all other scripture. Again, if someone else wrote the ending, does that necessarily mean it was not God-breathed? Moses did not write the end of Deuteronomy (it references his own death, after all). Does that mean it was not God-breathed?
