And with that we have finally come to the end of the book of Mark.

If you missed any of the previous 50 plus episodes, they can all be found and viewed over here – for those of you who have been walking through this book [at a very leisurely pace i might add] thank you for hanging out with me and for any thoughts and ideas you might have shared along the way.

This final piece sees Jesus revealing Himself to a number of followers after His death and a whole lot of disbelief amongst themselves as to whether or not it was Him:

And s we witness the death of Jesus… which has a profound effect on the world around Him… not only on the Roman centurion who was stationed nearby… but even on the physical aspects of the temple as the curtain is ripped from top to bottom.

Join me as i look at Mark 15 from verse 33 to 47 and share some thoughts on these things:

Today’s Mark passage is a little bit different to what we are used to and i would encourage you to wait until you have decent reflection time before watching it – don’t rush through this one – rather make a time to simply reflect and listen and feel and respond.

Join me as i look at Mark 15 from verse 16 to 32:

Jesus stands before Pontius Pilate and doesn’t seem to be particularly interested in defending his case [we could learn a LOT there, right?] and perhaps gives us a glimpse of the idea that following Him may often entail swimming against the current we find ourselves in.

Join me as I continue on with Mark 15 from verse 1 to 15:

Wow. Boom. Things just got real people.

Having just witnessed Simon Peter’s ‘Life or Death’ declaration of absolute faithfulness to Jesus at the Last Supper, we now have this follow up story where Peter is denying Jesus left, right and centre… until suddenly, the piercing sound of a rooster is heard…

Join me as i work through Mark 14.66-72:

Continuing our journey with Mark as we head towards the end of Jesus’ life as He heads for the garden where He will be arrested and then later tried.

i take some time to look at what He does or maybe more importantly what He doesn’t do – what He says and what He doesn’t say, to see where we can learn how we can and should respond in similiar flavoured circumstances:.

Join me as we take a look at Mark 14 from 43 to 65:

As we continue on with Mark, we have this very interesting passage that might leave us wondering why Jesus kept the disciples around.

But then if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably be super glad that He did. [and does!]

Join me as we look at Mark 14. 27-42 and maybe take a moment to thank God that He uses the foolish of the world to confound the wise…
