Mark 14:22-26 The Lord’s Supper

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

     Vs. 22  The guys were still eating and probably talking and enjoying themselves.  Then Jesus took some bread, gave thanks, and broke it, giving some to each one of them.  He said: “Take; this is my body.”  The whole tone of the supper changed in a moment.  I’m sure that all of a sudden you […]

Mark 14:17-21 ‘The Prophecy of Betrayal’ at The Last Supper

Sunday, November 12th, 2006

     Vs. 17-19   The Passover meal was in progress when Jesus proclaimed that one of his closest twelve, who were right there eating with him, would actually end up betraying him.  Each one reacted to the question, whether they might be the one (“is it I?”), only Judas and Jesus really knew the truth.  The rest of […]

Serial Review: “The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot: A New Look at Betrayer and Betrayed” -Part 1

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

     Vs. 12-13  The disciples ask Jesus about preparations for the Passover meal.  This story is similar to the story of the donkey.  Jesus prophetically sends two of his disciples to find the provider of the upper room.  

Mark 14:10-11 Judas Plots To Betray Jesus

Friday, October 27th, 2006

The Chief priests were looking for a way to do away with Jesus without creating a riot.  Notice that it is Judas who comes to them, and they are glad.  They finally have their opportunity.  But why did Judas decide to betray Jesus?  This a question that has plagued Bible students from the beginning.  Mark does not […]

Mark 14:3-9 The Anointing of Jesus

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Vs. 3  Jesus and his disciples had been staying in Bethany with Lazarus, Mary, and Martha.  That night he was having dinner at the home of Simon the Leper, apparently known well enough by early Christians to be named.  The ‘A woman’ is identified in John 12:3 as Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus.  Both […]
