Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Mark 14:53-65 (Focus: Sanhedrin Trial)

This week we focused on the physical context of the “trial” of Jesus in the home/palace of the High Priest (Caiaphas) while Peter stood outside in the courtyard denying Him. We discussed the Sanhedrin as a law-enforcing group within Judaism, as well as their inability to follow their own rules. We briefly reviewed the literary technique called “Markan Sandwiches,” since the Trial/Denial scene constitutes one of three “sandwiches” in chapter 14.
