The Council's Condemnation Of Jesus In The Gospel Of Mark

Good Essays
The Gospel of Mark is credited as the earliest written narrative of Jesus’ life because it possessed all of the fundamental parables and teachings of Jesus with slight attempts to develop a new Christian theology- mainly emphasizing faith. For example, in verse (7:9), Mark elevates the importance of faith in the Holy Spirit in order to reject one’s temptation to favor tradition over the commandments of God. When Jesus preached his authority over such Jewish traditions it offended the Pharisees, and ultimately, led to his trial and death. The Gospel of Mark’s depiction of the Council’s condemnation of Jesus portrays the high priest, chief priests, elders, and scribes in an unjustifiably hostile light specifically in verses (14:56) and (14:57).
