14. Prayerfully Serve the Betrayed King
May 22, 2022 • Bruce Miller
In Mark chapter 14. In chapter 14 we feel the darkness, betrayal by a close friend, desertion by all Jesus’ disciples, and denial by one of his closest followers. His own religious leaders plot to kill him. We feel the dread as Jesus’ arrest and death come near. And yet underneath it all Jesus maintains control. While he grieves and feels deep distress, he is not surprised nor overcome.
