This week we studied the juxtaposition of Jesus’ trial before the Sanhedrin in the high priest’s home and Peter’s trial before the servants and guards in the courtyard. We saw how once again, the rich and powerful rejected the truth, while the humble and lowly pursued it. We saw how Mark’s technique of sandwiching helps us give us a rich perspective on what was happening in each of these “trials” in chapter 14.
To learn more about Mark’s “sandwiching” technique,
