The Burial of Jesus, Mark 15:42-47

Text Comment

v.43

For the sake of his Gentile readers, Mark, as was his custom in the Gospel, explains the Jewish idiom of Preparation Day. It was also the Jewish custom, based on Deut. 21:23, to grant even to criminals a …

It is Finished, Mark 15:33-41

Last time we considered from the previous paragraphs the crucifixion as an historical event and the repugnance that was felt in those days, by Jew and Gentile alike, to crucifixion as a method of execution. It was the worst possible way to die and it…

The Crucifixion, Mark 15:16-32

Text Comment

v.18

There is great irony here, of course, as the soldiers unwittingly acknowledge Jesus’ true identity. In Mark, as in the other Gospels, the accent falls not on the physical torture, the fact of which was st…

Jesus Judged, Mark 15:1-15

Text Comment

v.1

The first verse of chapter 15 resumes the narrative broken off at 14:65 to complete the account of Peter’s betrayal. At that point the Sanhedrin had agreed to condemn Jesus.
Pontius Pilate was t…

Jesus in the Hands of Men, Mark 14:43-72

Text Comment

v.43

Gethsemane, Mark 14:32-42

The Lord had told his disciples many times over the past year that he was going to Jerusalem to be arrested and killed. He entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday in a way designed to throw down the gauntlet to the religious authorities and to precipitate t…

The Lord’s Supper, Mark 14:12-31

Text Comment

v.16

The point of the Lord’s precise though mysterious instructions and the disciples finding things just as Jesus had told them to expect is to demonstrate that the Lord was in complete control of events as h…

Devotion to Christ, Mark 14:1-11

We have noted before Mark’s technique of the literary “sandwich” in which he inserts into the middle of one account another narrative and uses the relationship between the outer pieces and the center to make a point without having to spell it out. In…

This same Jesus…will come back…, Mark 13:1-37

Text Comment
We have an unusually long text to read this morning – in fact the longest block of teaching in the Gospel of Mark – and so I will not take time to comment on it as we read it.

When this passage is read, very often the inte…

Above All Else: the Heart, Mark 12:38-44

We come now to the final episode of the Lord’s public ministry as that ministry is narrated in the Gospel of Mark. What remains before his arrest and crucifixion are conversations that he had with his disciples only. Here the Lord sets over against o…
