In our study we are still on Tuesday, we have just covered the Sanherdrin questioning Jesus authority. We come now to Jesus foretelling the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem.

Mark 13

New Living Translation (NLT)

Jesus Foretells the Future

1As Jesus was leaving the Temple that day, one of his disciples said, “Teacher, look at these magnificent buildings! Look at the impressive stones in the walls.”

2Jesus replied, “Yes, look at these great buildings. But they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!”

This is also recorded in Matt 24:1-3 and Luke 21:5-7. This prophecy was fulfilled in AD70 when the Roman General Titus destroyed much of Jerusalem including the temple. immediately after making this prophecy Jesus gives what is known as the Olivet Discourse which is about His return.

Mary Anoints Jesus at Bethany

This account is also found in Matt 26:6-13 and John 12:2-8

Mark 14:3-9

New Living Translation (NLT)

3 Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had previously had leprosy. While he was eating,[a] a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard. She broke open the jar and poured the perfume over his head.

4 Some of those at the table were indignant. “Why waste such expensive perfume?” they asked. 5 “It could have been sold for a year’s wages[b] and the money given to the poor!” So they scolded her harshly.

6 But Jesus replied, “Leave her alone. Why criticize her for doing such a good thing to me? 7 You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But you will not always have me. 8 She has done what she could and has anointed my body for burial ahead of time. 9 I tell you the truth, wherever the Good News is preached throughout the world, this woman’s deed will be remembered and discussed.”

Footnotes:

  1. Mark 14:3 Or reclining.
  2. Mark 14:5 Greek for 300 denarii. A denarius was equivalent to a laborer’s full day’s wage.

It seem that Jesus spent the nights in the village of Bethany just a couple of miles on the outside of Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives. Simon was a leper that probably had been healed by Jesus and ver well could have been the father of Lazarus, Mary and Martha.( see John 12:1,2) The woman poured the oil out on Jesus head and feet. She opened the flask in such a way that it poured out over Jesus entire body from head to foot. Jesus saw this as a preparation of His body for death. Normally the perfume would be placed on the body after death- The fact that this perfume was expensive point to two things-

  1. The value of Jesus death

  2. the high cost of being a disciple of Jesus.

  1. I wish I had just a fraction of your Bible smarts. If that were my entire knowledge base I would consider myself lucky!
