Reading along with us in Mark? Here’s today’s reading:

Mark 15 (ESV)

And as soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. And they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, “You have said so.” And the chief priests accused him of many things. And Pilate again asked him, “Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed.

Now at the feast he used to release for them one prisoner for whom they asked.And among the rebels in prison, who had committed murder in the insurrection, there was a man called Barabbas. And the crowd came up and began to ask Pilate to do as he usually did for them. And he answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release for them Barabbas instead. 12 And Pilate again said to them, “Then what shall I do with the man you call the King of the Jews?” 13 And they cried out again, “Crucify him.” 14 And Pilate said to them, “Why? What evil has he done?” But they shouted all the more, “Crucify him.” 15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified...Continue Reading

  1. 38And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. 39And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!”

  2. Pilate was clever rather than honorable
    The crowd was manipulated and acted like a crowd
    Simon of Cyrene was conscripted
    The centurion was enlightened
    Jesus reflected an unimaginable love subjecting himself to this pain humiliation suffering all while he could have with His divine power in an instant caused extinction ofHis enemies
    I am amazed at the grace He demonstrated

  3. Although the events depicted here are all too familiar, how sad to have Jesus suffer so much for us. I couldn’t help thinking as I read what was it like for Him, emotionally, physically and spiritually? No one has suffered as much as He on so many levels. And at any moment He could have changed it. And not just with power but to declare His innocence, to make a reasoned argument against the injustice of it all. But it was His and His Father’s will that He would die and pay the price. He was the only one who could. So thank you Jesus for paying a debt you did not owe because I owed a debt I could not pay!
