Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Mark 14:42-52 (Focus: Betrayal)

This week we studied Judas’ betrayal of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. We looked at the significance of the number 3 in Scripture and how the theme of threes in Mark underscores God’s perfect plan. We also studied Judas’ kiss—and how it could have been the first sign of Judas’ realization of the gravity of what he had just done.

There is no PowerPoint for this week.

Here’s a link to the CARM article I mentioned during the lesson:

The Ultimate Betrayal: Judas’ Kiss

Judas betrays Jesus with a fervent kiss.

And because I cannot teach a lesson about Judas’ kiss without this song playing in the back of my head, here’s a throwback to the 1980s with a classic Christian Rock song by Petra: “Judas’ Kiss.”
