The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 7
Mark’s Gospel, the first to be written, emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. In the pages of Mark’s account, we come to know Him as the Messiah, the Suffering Servant, the Son of God, the Risen Christ, and the Returning King. With nearly a third of the narrative dedicated to the passion and the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of Mark aims to persuade all who read to believe.
In Mark 14, we see God’s hand continues to orchestrate His redemption plan, despite attempts to thwart Christ’s mission. The evil actions of men like Judas did not take God by surprise. We cannot always understand why God uses sin and affliction to carry out His will, but it is always for the ultimate good of His people. Alistair Begg shows us that even Jesus, in His humanity, asked His Father to remove the suffering that was planned for Him, but through His obedience, we are reconciled to God.
