Mark 15

Posted on by John Chiarello


Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

.Jesus before Pilate

.Silent Lamb

.Pilate manipulated

.The accusation- KING OF THE JEWS

.Scourged brutally


.The place of the skull

.Movement of hate towards a person

.God- why have you left me?




Jesus is delivered to Pilate- Pilate [Roman governor over Judea from 26- 36 AD] Is amazed that Jesus is silent before his court-

Mark 15:4 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.Mark 15:5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.

This was a fulfillment of prophecy-


New International Version
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. Is. 53:7


Pilate is willing to release one convict- because this was a tradition that was kept by the Romans themselves in recognition of the Jewish holy day- Passover-

Mark 15:6 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.

He asks the people who they want for him to let go- he knew the Jewish leaders did this because of envy-

Mark 15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

Yet they ask for Barabbas- a murderer- to be set free- and for Jesus to be crucified-

Mark 15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.

Jesus is whipped- severely- and brought to the ‘Place of the skull’ Golgotha- [Overblog- see here-  https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/08/16/mark-15/ ]
