    Zondervan's NIV Bible Commentary, Vol II, notes of the longer Marcan ending:

    "Style: The connection between v.8 and vv, 9-20 is abrupt and awkward. Verse 9 begins with the masculine nominative participle anastas, which demands for its antecedent 'he,' i.e., Jesus; but the subject of the last sentence of v.8 is the women, not Jesus" (p 204).


    Does anyone here know enough Greek to refute this claim?

    I'm no Greek expert, but I took the time to look up the Greek, and it looks like they're correct.
