Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Mark 14:12-72 (Focus: Betrayal & Denials)

This week we did a quick overview of the rest of Mark 14. We looked at a literary technique Mark uses in his Gospel to “SANDWICH” one story into the middle of another with an intentional and discernible theological purpose. The sandwiches emphasize the MAJOR THEMES of Mark’s Gospel— especially the meaning of faith, discipleship, bearing witness, and the dangers of apostasy.

To learn more about this literary technique, read this article in Novum Testamentum by James R. Edwards:
“Markan Sandwiches: The Significance of Interpolations in Markan Narratives.”
