Read

Mark 15:16-39

Background

Mark builds up the story of Jesus’ crucifixion through small pictures. He presents one detail after another to tell the story in a sequence, moving swiftly from scene to scene. 

Mark doesn’t stay long on any particular theme except for the main one, which emerges over and over: Jesus is crucified as the King of the Jews. 

From Mark’s perspective, Israel is where the world’s violence and wickedness seem to have concentrated itself. But the Messiah, the King, had taken such violence and wickedness upon Himself. As a result, He had made a way of rescue and of ransom for any who will follow Him.
