This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 16:14. Ὕστερον, lastly) The last of His appearances, not absolutely, but of those which Mark describes; [and which occurred on the very day of the resurrection. For Mark adds: When the eleven sat at meat; and therefore he does not speak of the appearance on the mountain of Galilee, which He Himself touches on most briefly, in Mar 16:7, and Mat 28:16, expressly records.-Harm., p. 604.]-ἀνακειμένοις, as they sat at meat) At the time when men are most exhilarated by the coming of those whom they were earnestly wishing for.-αὐτοῖς, themselves) together.-ὠνείδισε, He upbraided) This takes for granted that the proofs of the resurrection were undoubted. [A wholesome putting of them to shame.-V. g.]-καὶ σκληροκαρδίαν, and hardness of heart) Faith and a tender heart are always conjoined.
