The King of the Jews
February 10, 2019 Speaker: Brent Belford Series: The Gospel of Mark: Following the Suffering Servant
Passage: Mark 15:1–15:15
Series Sermon #48: At the beginning of Mark 15, the trial of Jesus continues. The Jewish Sanhedrin take false charges against Jesus to Pilate and Pilate fixates on one charge in particular. So, he asks Jesus about being the "King of the Jews." Although Pilate seems reluctant to punish Jesus, the crowd revolts and demands crucifixion. Although Jesus is the King of the Jews, the Jewish people only desire his execution.
