The Third Betrayal: Pilate

Mark 15:2-20 (Focus: The Third Betrayal ~ Pilate)

This week we took our time working through the first twenty verses of Mark 15. What we discovered is that Pilate, although Governor of Judea, was a very weak leader who could not stand up to the manipulation of the Sanhedrin. With His eyes fixed on the cross, we watched Jesus endure everything from verbal abuse and mockery to one of the most brutal physical punishments ever invented. As Isaiah prophesied, “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth” (Isa. 53:7).

There was no PowerPoint this week. And, sadly, no one took a photo of my fantastic stick-figure artistry on the white board. You’ll just have to use your imagination!
