This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 31 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 14:53-72
The object of the Jewish
council was to find legal grounds for putting Jesus to death. It had been
previously decided that He must die. (14:1), but some ground must be sought,
which would justify their action in condemning Him, and enable them to secure
Pilate’s confirmation of the verdict. Cf. Lk. 23:1, 2.
1.Verses 53-65. Note that the one
definite charge, on which the decision to have Jesus put to death was taken,
was His claim to be the Christ. Cf. 15:26. How did Jesus declare that His claim
would be vindicated? Cf. Acts 2:32-36. What is your attitude to His claim?
1.Observe the experiences through
which Peter passed on this eventful night. What were the contributing factors
which finally led up to his denial of Christ? See 14:29, 37, 50, 54. What can
we learn from all this that will help us to be prepared for temptation?
