Our journey through the Gospel of Mark is about to come to a close. The entire book has been pointing to the events of the next few weeks. We’ve been seeing and following Jesus, learning who he is and what he has done for us! We've seen Jesus heal the sick, give sight to the blind, make the lame walk, and raise the dead. The picture today, though, is that of humility and punishment as he is mocked for not freeing himself. Why did they mock him? Why did he endure it? As we gather today we will hear from Jesus his answer.
