In this conversation Pastors Erik, Cody and Gavin conclude their walk through the narrative of the Gospel of Mark, discussing the Passion narrative (chapters 14-16) . Read those chapters, listen to the audio of the conversation, and chip in on the comments section below with your own thoughts on the Scripture and to these three questions:
- What word, phrase, or theme most resonated with you personally as you read this section of Scripture?
- What does this portion of Scripture invite us to as a community of disciples?
- If you’re sitting down with these chapters, what drink or snack would pair best with the reading?
We’re not altogether done with the Gospel of Mark! During the season of Lent, we will dive into the book of Proverbs and hold its wisdom up against the wisdom of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark. So, for our next Bible Convo we discuss Proverbs chapters 1-9 and ask how those little nuggests square with Jesus’ way.

One thought on “Bible Convo (Mark 14-16) – 2/10/21”
Jen’s comments: We are VERY far behind on the Scripture Convos because we were sticking to our Small Group progress. But Palm Sunday is a great day to listen to this particular podcast.
The things that stuck out to me are what Cody said about the “Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak”. I had always thought that referred to my spirit being willing. I really liked how Cody emphasized that the Spirit of God is willing, while our/human flesh is weak. There is so much more power available from the Spirit of God than we could ever need or use. It is a good idea to pray that God would fill us with his Spirit, on a daily basis.
I also had never heard about Barabbas meaning “Son of the father”…..that is such great irony that the chief priests and crowd would select such a “horrible terrifying ‘son of the father’ over the loving, kind, sacrificing “Son of the Most High Father”.
