On Monday morning I will begin a multi-post reflection on Jesus’ trial before the Sanhedrin in Mark 14:53-65. Having been encouraged by a few friends, I’ve once again decided to try my hand at blogging.
Monday’s post is: PART ONE: “MY SOUL WAITS IN SILENCE FOR GOD ONLY”
The Scripture passage is not long. I encourage you to take a minute to read it before Monday’s post comes out. Below is a sample of Monday’s post.
I aim to post one part this four-part reflection on the next four Mondays.
PART ONE: “MY SOUL WAITS IN SILENCE FOR GOD ONLY”
The scene is striking. The Sanhedrin – the Jewish governing council – finally have Jesus within their grasp. Some wanted to destroy Jesus much earlier on in his ministry – for doing good on the Sabbath (Mark 3:6).
Now, they have successfully tempted one of Jesus’ closest friends to betray him, they have intimidated the others so that they scattered. Now they have Jesus right where they want him. Now they are in control. Now they are able to follow through with their heart’s desire. It is as if they have made arrangements at an exclusive restaurant and have prepaid for the exquisite meal; their mouths are watering.
