Mark 14:26-52

  1. Verses 26-31. Peter evidently found it much easier to apply the Lord’s words to the disciples than to himself. What wrong attitude does this reveal?
    Do we ever refuse to accept what the Lord is plainly trying to teach us?
  2. Verses 32-50. What caused our Lord’s distress? What is meant here by ‘the hour’ and ‘this cup’?
    Why was Jesus ready, in a way his disciples were not, for what had to be faced?
    What exactly was his petition?
    Was it answered, and if  so, how?
    Cf. Heb. 5:7, 8; Ps. 119:50, 92.
