  • Mark 14:12-42
  • Mark 14:12-21 – This is the last Passover feast that the Jews ate with the approval of God. Jesus was about to be crucified and the new law would take effect.
  • Mark 14:22-25 – Jesus institutes the Lord’s Supper.
  • Mark 14:25 – The phrase “the day that” comes from the Greek tes hemeras ekeinas. Variations of this phrase also occur in Matthew 7:22; 8:1; II Timothy 1:18; :8; Matthew 24:36; Mark 13:22; II Timothy 1:12. Jesus is making the point that there was a specific day in which they would eat the Supper. In Acts 20:7, this day is identified – the first day of the week.
  • Mark 14:22-23 – Note that Jesus gave thanks for the bread and fruit of the vine. We should do the same when waiting the table for the Lord’s Supper. This is a simple act, but is often forgotten.
  • Mark 14:26-31 – Jesus prophesies about Peter’s denial.
  • Mark 14:32-42 – Jesus prays in Gethsemane.
  • Mark 14:35 – The phrase “pass by” comes from the Greek para erchomai. See John 14:27. The phrase is also used in Matthew 14:15; Mark 6:48; Luke 18:37; Acts 16:8; 27:9; James 1:10. Jesus was praying that the time would pass quickly and his prayer was answered.
