Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Lenten Devotions: Day Thirteen

Monday, March 21

 We continue following the story of Jesus’ final hours, as recorded in the Gospel of Mark, with Mark 14:61-65 (NRSV).

Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” Jesus said, “I am; and ‘you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power,’ and ‘coming with the clouds of heaven.’”

Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, “Why do we still need witnesses? You have heard his blasphemy! What is your decision?” All of them condemned him as deserving death. Some began to spit on him, to blindfold him, and to strike him, saying to him, “Prophesy!” The guards also took him over and beat him.

Are there words or phrases that impact you in this passage?

Try to visualize this scene. Now, put yourself in Jesus’ place. What do you see? What do you hear?
