Mark 14 – Alone

April 14, 2019

Mark 14.17-42

To be alone is disorienting, to be alone in suffering is despairing. As Jesus approaches his death–his closest friends betray and abandon him. Then in his time of greatest need, he calls out to the Father and to his horror, the Father turns his face away. On the cross, Jesus is forsaken, that we might never be apart from the one we need most.
