The Passion Narrative of Mark’s Gospel

March 29, 2015

The Gospels are passion narratives with long introductions, dominated by Jesus’ death and resurrection. On this Palm Sunday, as we near the climax of the Lenten season, we examine four odd details in St. Mark’s account of Christ’s passion.

Reading 1 – Isaiah 50:4-7
Psalm – Psalm 22:8-9, 17-20, 23-24
Reading 2 – Philippians 2:6-11
Gospel – Mark 14:1 – 15:47
