Handling Betrayal
Mark 14:10-21

The Gospel of Mark examines the role of Judas Iscariot in this last week of Jesus' earthly ministry. Pastor Joe addresses the pain of betrayal, and how we should react if betrayed by others.

Mark 14
  1. And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
  2. And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
  3. And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
  4. And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
  5. And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
  6. And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
  7. And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
  8. And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
  9. And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
  10. And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
  11. And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
  12. The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
