Discussion for Mark 14

  • A disciple
    (1-10) Being even Jesus' closest and most important, is not a blanket approval for condoning anyone in whatever he or she (hypocritically) thinks and says. "The tree is known by its fruits." Of all the Disciples and Apostles, apparently only Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus was really listening to the Lord, and understanding what He had come into the world to do.Don't lose sight of the truth!
  • Dianna
    "She hath done what she could" She anointed Jesus for burial preparation, and they were fussing because the oil could have been sold and the $$ given to the poor- these were the Scribes and Pharisees- hypocrites, they thought it was a waste for her to do such an act. I would like to be remembered by my grandchildren, Maw Maw loved God, she did all she could do. Be an example.

    The verse 9 caught my attention so much that I can't stop meditating.As Christians what good would be remembered of us by our fellow Christians and heaven as well. Does our good work please God? That is the question we should ask ourselves.

    Men have messed with my head so much I don't know what is real or just acts of making me crazy. All that is real to me is God. An I need him and his son to help me now. I don't want people to perish for my ignorance. I love you lane

    23-25 This cup which we bless, we drink in remembrance of His blood shed for our redemption. At the same time He is vowing the vow of the Nazarite, to refrain from the fruit of the vine until He "drinks it new with us in the kingdom of God." Like when Naomi told her daughter-in-law Ruth to sit still; for Boaz would not rest until he had finished the matter that day:What Jesus began He will finish!

    Jesus truly valued prayer and he made use of this provision in one of his hardest times.
