Today Mark tells the story of Jesus' trial before the Sanhedrin. It is important to note that he intentionally joins the stories of Jesus and Peter together. He wants us to view these two stories as a whole. Two trials are taking place. The first finds Jesus before the Sanhedrin; the second, Peter before the servants. In context, both trials ultimately point us to the same truth: though unbelief rages against God and against His Christ, nothing shall ultimately prevail against Him and His Church. He is the Ruler of all; further, our Lord Jesus Christ has been installed as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He shall reign until He puts all His enemies under His feet. He shall not fail nor grow discouraged until He has established righteousness in the earth. And so our calling as we face the agendas of men is to trust Him; He shall vindicate us.
