The Chief Priests Demonstrate Envy
Today's Passage: Mark 15:9-15
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the chapter NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
9. "Would you like me to release to you this 'King of the Jews'?" Pilate asked.
10. (For he realized by now that the leading priests had arrested Jesus out of envy)
11. But at this point the leading priests stirred up the crowd to demand the release of Barabbas instead of Jesus.
12. Pilate asked them, "Then what should I do with this man you call the king of the Jews?"
13. They shouted back, "Crucify him!"
14. "Why?" Pilate demanded. "What crime has he committed?"
But the mob roared even louder, "Crucify him!"
15. So to pacify the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to be crucified.
Mark 15: 9-15 NLT
Get quiet for a moment.
Ask yourself one of these three:
You sent your Son
To Die on the Cross.
You sent Him to carry our burdens,
our sin, our less-thans.
Please allow us to take this day to think on
the day that the world cried out
to reject and crucify Him.
But is it a mere memory
far off and away?
Or is it a memory
dug deep into our hearts
pinned there with His wounds⏤
A memory that we welcome
to say, "Thank You for this day"
A memory that we rejoice in
in every way.
In your holy name,
Please leave your name and your last initial in the comments.
