In our series of studies in the gospel of Mark, we have come to the fourteenth chapter. As you recall, Mark is bringing us to those eventful moments of the last week our Lord spent in Jerusalem and its environs just before his crucifixion and resurrection. In this chapter, Mark does what he has done frequently throughout this Gospel -- Mark brings together certain events and themes which occurred at various times during this week and deliberately places them side by side so that we might see the contrast in certain emphases.

Love's Extravagance  ( Mark 14:1-25 )  Daily Devotion

Leave her alone, said Jesus. Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me (Mark 14:6).

Smite the Shepherd  ( Mark 14:26-52 )  Sunday Message

We return to our studies in Mark, stepping again into the infinite mystery that always gathers around the events in the closing days of our Lord's earthly life, the scenes that lead to the cross. I am sure that the twenty-third Psalm, the Shepherd's Psalm, is the best-loved psalm of all.

Watch And Pray  ( Mark 14:26-52 )  Daily Devotion

Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. Simon, he said to Peter, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak (Mark 14:37-38).

Jesus and the Priests  ( Mark 14:53-72 )  Sunday Message

These studies in Mark's gospel have taken us to the action packed week of our Lord just before the cross and the resurrection. To some of you, these events that occurred 2,000 years ago and so far away may seem rather remote from your own experience. Sometimes we are so caught up in our daily lives that these events seem rather dull because of their familiarity, especially in contrast to the exciting events of this week, such as the capture of Patty Hearst, the continuing trend of inflation, the events of the Middle East, and the visit of the President to our community.

Jesus And Peter  ( Mark 14:53-72 )  Daily Devotion

He began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, I don't know this man you're talking about (Mark 14:71).
