Mark 15:1-38

FOR ME!

 

In Galatians 2:20 Paul states that Jesus loved him and gave Himself for him.  Jesus loved and gave Himself for us as well. Mark shows us what terrible trouble Jesus faced for me!

 

ACCUSATION - Vss. 1-3 - He was falsely accused before Pilate by the chief priests, who should have received Him as their Messiah.

 

REJECTION - Vss. 6-14 - His own people rejected Him in favor of a convicted criminal, Barabbas.

 

HUMILIATION - Vss. 15-28

1. From the soldiers - Vss. 15-23

2. On the cross - Vss. 24-33

 

SEPARATION - Vss. 34-36 - Because He was bearing the sin of the world, even God the Father separated Himself from His Son during this time.

 

VINDICATION - Vss. 37-38 - When the veil was torn in two it indicated that God had accepted the sacrifice of Jesus for sin.  The way was open to the "holy of holies" through Christ.

THE FINAL HOURS

 

Mark tells us of the last hours of Jesus by telling us about:

 

PILATE'S RELUCTANT CONSENT - Vss. 1-15

 

Pilate gave in to the demands of the Jewish leaders.

 

He tired to find a way to not crucify Jesus, but in the end yielded to their

demands.

 

THE SOLDIERS' REPULSIVE CONDUCT - Vss. 16-28

 

They mocked and beat Him. Vss. 15-18

 

They crucified Him. Vss.19-28

 

THE PEOPLE'S REBELLIOUS CHALLENGE - Vss. 29-32

 

Those who didn't believe on Him challenged Him to come off the cross.

 

Staying on the cross secured forgiveness for all that trust Him as Savior.

 

THE SAVIOR'S RIGHTEOUS CONQUEST - Vss. 33-38

 

Our Lord died for our sins and secured forgiveness.

 

The torn veil showed that God had accepted Jesus' sacrifice, and that there

was now, through Jesus, access into the Father's presence.
