Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 16:5

_ _ And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man — In Matthew 28:2 he is called “the angel of the Lord”; but here he is described as he appeared to the eye, in the bloom of a life that knows no decay. In Matthew he is represented as sitting on the stone outside the sepulchre; but since even there he says, “Come, see the place where the Lord lay” (Matthew 28:6), he seems, as Alford says, to have gone in with them from without; only awaiting their arrival to accompany them into the hallowed spot, and instruct them about it.

_ _ sitting on the right side — having respect to the position in which His Lord had lain there. This trait is peculiar to Mark; but compare Luke 1:11.

_ _ clothed in a long white garment — On its length, see Isaiah 6:1; and on its whiteness, see on Matthew 28:3.

_ _ and they were affrighted.
