Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: Mark 14:53–72

What can we learn from the trial of Jesus? Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church as we consider Mark 14.

Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. What does it mean to stand over God in judgment? What are some ways that we are tempted to do this?
  2. What is one highlight from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Read Mark 14:53–65. Mark gives several details that show the illegitimacy of this trial. What are some of them? Why was this important for his original audience? How is this important today?
  4. Read Mark 14:71–72. What does the text mean when it tells us that Peter “curses”?
  5. Contrast Peter and Jesus in this passage. In what ways does this passage invite us to contemplate our similarities with Peter?
  6. Read Mark 14:61–62. Why does Jesus wait until this moment to declare that he is the Christ? What is the significance of waiting until now? (read Isaiah 52:13–53:12)
  7. Read Daniel 7:13–14; Psalm 110:1. Jesus refers to these passages when speaking of his future. In what ways do these verses serve as a warning for us?
  8. In what ways has Jesus carried the weight of your curse? How should we respond to this truth? As a group, discuss how we should respond to the good news of Jesus. How will this transform your day-to-day life this week?
