Mark 14:1-2 – The Plot to Kill Jesus

Christian MölkMark Leave a Comment

Mark 14:1

  1. “Passover” means “pass by”, “spare” and was an annual festival celebrated in Jerusalem (Deuteronomy 16:5-6) to commemorate Israel’s exodus from Egypt (Exodus 12:1-20).

Mark 14:2

  1. Jesus knew for a long time that he would die during the week of Passover in Jerusalem (Mark 10:32-34). However, the religious leaders decided not to kill Jesus during Easter but eventually did so anyway. This shows us that Jesus had the situation under control and that nothing could prevent him from fulfilling the prophecies and carrying out his mission.
