Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMark 16:3
- Who shall roll us away the stone? (Tiv apokulisei hmin ton liton;).
- Alone in Mark. The opposite of proskuliw in 15:46. In verse 4
- rolled back (anekekulistai, perfect passive indicative)
- occurs also. Both verbs occur in Koine writers and in the papyri. Clearly the women have no hope of the resurrection of Jesus for they were raising the problem (elegon, imperfect) as they walked along.
