Holy Week: Thursday


On this day, he had His disciples prepare the Passover lamb (Matt. 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-13), and Jesus and His disciples had their Passover meal in the Upper Room (Matt. 26:20-30; Mark 14:17-26; Luke 22:14-30; John 13:1–14:31). Leaving the Upper Room, Jesus had a discourse with His disciples and offered an intercessory prayer in their behalf (Matt. 26:30-35; Mark 14:26-31; Luke 22:31-39; John 15:1–18:1). They arrived at the Garden of Gethsemane, and it was here where Jesus suffered in agony (Matt. 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; Luke 22:39-46; John 18:1). Later that night Jesus was betrayed and arrested (Matt. 26:47-56; Mark 14:43-52; Luke 22:47-53; John 18:2-12). During the rest of that night, Jesus was tried first by Annas and later by Caiaphas with the religious leaders (Matt. 26:57-75; Mark 14:53-72; Luke 22:54-65; John 18:13-27).

    Curious why Hoehner left out Mary’s anointing of Jesus’ feet in Mark 14:3-9 when the Text clearly indicates that her act of sacrifice and worship was performed with Jesus’ burial in mind.

    I am teaching on this tonight and was curious to see that the quotations from Hoehner completely skip Mark 14:3-9.

    John 12:1 states that Mary’s act of anointing took place “six days before the Passover.” If one takes John 12 and Mark 14 to refer to the same event, then this could be the answer as to why Hoehner didn’t include it in the passion week.


  3. Kevin,

    Hoehner includes the Mark 14:3-9 episode under the events of Saturday/Sunday at the beginning of the week which I have not included in this series (I should have).
