Mark’s ending in Bezae

Interestingly, I and a professor of mine were looking into, to appease our curiosity, whether the ending of Mark (meaning past verse 8) was present in Codex Bezae. What we found was that although much of the ending is still missing (15-20), Codex Bezae does go up to up to verse 14. This was checked in Nestle-Aland. This adds credulity to the cases for not only how primitive the ending past verse 8 in the 16th chapter of Mark is, but perhaps also that it may be (at least proximately) original to Mark.
