Crucified, Dead and Buried

Passage: Mark 15:39-47
Service Type:

Mark presents us with witnesses to the fact that Jesus died. The Roman centurion had never seen anyone die like this before, with victory and peace. The second witnesses are a group of women. Women's evidence was not admissable in court; Mark wouldn't have made them the main witnesses if he were trying to invent a credible gospel. Jesus really died, which means sin really matters. The third witness is Joseph of Arimathea. As a member of the Sanhedrin, burying Jesus would have made him despised. He does this because he loves Jesus. Do people know that we are followers of Jesus?
