Jesus Arrested

Mark 14:43-72
  • The chief priests and Jewish religious leaders wanted to get rid of Jesus because He was a threat to their religious system, traditions, and authority.   How do people “get rid” of Jesus today when He is threat in the same way? What should a disciple’s response be to efforts to “get rid” of Jesus?
  • After Jesus made it known that He would be betrayed by one of the Apostles, each responded by saying, “Surely not I.” Peter declared that he would die before denying Jesus, and yet, hours later, Peter does just that.  Most disciples believe that they would never betray or deny Jesus, yet in both small and large ways, we each do.  How do modern believers betray and deny Jesus? How can we have better awareness of our betrayals and denials?
