Mark 13-14

This week we read through chapters 13-14 of Mark's gospel writing (which is Peter's gospel account/testimony/witness of his time with Christ). In these chapters we read and learn about the signs of the closing of the end of the age - the abolition of the old covenant, instituted by the destruction of the temple - and the culmination of the "end times," Jesus' time with His disciples during the day of Passover, the plans and practice of the Passover meal, the institution of New Covenant through the bread and wine proclaiming the ratification of the New Covenant in His broken body and shed blood that was coming, His praying and arrest in the garden, His trial before the chief priests and high priest, and Peter's triple denial of Jesus before the rooster crowed a second time.
