This week, we continued our verse-by-verse study in the Gospel according to Mark. Due to a decision we made earlier this year to study the Resurrection on Resurrection Sunday, we’ve already “surveyed” Mark 14-16. Since we spent so much time looking at Mark 14:1-11 a couple months ago, I didn’t spend too much time on it today.
Today’s lesson came to focus on the prediction Jesus made about His betrayal. This was a “catch-up” lesson for us, so the first half moves along pretty swiftly. It also takes us back to when I began using PowerPoints in class to move the lessons along. The PowerPoint below can be used for both lessons.
