Mark 14:1 After two days was the feast of the passover and of unleavened bread and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft and put him to death.
This was the cabal, which has been around since the days of Cain.
Mark 14:2 But they said, Not on the feast day lest there be an uproar of the people.

Mark 14:3-6 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat.(mealtime), there came a woman.(who may this have been? see Clarke's Commentary note).having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious and she opened the box and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? or it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence and have been given to the poor.(like those today {1, 2} who are users, deceivers and abusers of humanity, those who are out to get all they possibly can from you for their selfish and cruel satanic ways and criminal cohorts). And they murmured against her. And Emmanuel said, Let her alone. Why trouble her? she has wrought a good work on me.
Clarke's Commentary: Some think that the woman mentioned here was Mary, the sister of Lazarus. Others think it was Mary Magdalene. Had this been Mary the sister of Lazarus, why would Matthew and Mark have suppressed her name in their writing of it by simply calling her 'a woman' as they both knew her well as they were part of the group?

Bishop Newcome's view on who these women were: Mary and Martha her sister lived in the same town as Lazarus and this event is mentioned in Matthew and Mark's accounts. All three were around Emmanuel a lot. The meal here in Mark 14:1-3 was at Simon the leper's place and was made only two days before the passover and the meal in John 12:1-3 was six days before the passover at the house of Lazarus, two separate events. The woman here being a Mary, who poured the oil on Christ's feet. And so did this unknown lady:.Luke 7:36-50. The woman in Matthew 26:6-13 also is unknown. This lady poured oil on the head of Christ.

The oils were mixed with various herbs, forming an ointment. Spikenard is an aromatic.perennial.herb (Nardostachys jatamansi) of the Himalaya Mountains in India (map), having rose-purple flowers and 'spikes' growing out of its roots; also called nard. It's gives off a sweet scented perfume when made into an ointment. The name 'nard' for this aromatic plant of India is probably from the ancient Sanskrit 'naladam'. It is also a North American plant (Aralia racemosa) having small greenish flowers, aromatic roots and bipinnately compound leaves.

Mark 14:7 For you have the poor with you always.(John 12:8).and whenever you can, do them good, but me you have not always.

Mark 14:8,9 She has done what she could. She is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she has done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Mark 14:10,11 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them. And when they.(those Pharisees, et al, who allowed themselves to be influenced by the dark side).heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.

Mark 14:12-14 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where will you that we go and prepare that you may eat the passover? And he sent forth two of his disciples and said unto them, Go into the city and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water. Follow him. And wheresoever he shall go in, say you to the goodman of the house, The Master said, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
Were these angels?.Hebrews 13:2.
Mark 14:18-20 And as they sat and did eat, Emmanuel said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eats with me shall betray me. And they began to be sorrowful and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I? And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dips with me in the dish.

Mark 14:21 The Son of man indeed goes, as it is written of him, but woe to that man.(John 12:4).by whom the Son of man is betrayed.(other references to Judas betrayal of Emmanuel)! Good were it for that man if he had never been born.
Acts 1:16-20; God was behind it.(*). Emmanuel came to clean up this thing called sin for all humanity, by dying.(*). The final cleaning up before the great age of the kingdom of God is now being done.
Mark 14:22 And as they did eat, Emmanuel took bread and blessed and brake it and gave to them and said, Take, eat, this is.(represents, symbolizes).my body.

Mark 14:23 And he took the cup and when he had given thanks he gave it to them and they all drank of it. 

Mark 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

Mark 14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
Also Luke 22:15,16).(Eclectic Notes."The original Aramaic.may have read 'until I drink it having been renewed in the kingdom of God'"
Mark 14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Mark 14:27 And Emmanuel said unto them, All you shall be offended because of me this night. For it is written.(Zechariah 13:7). I will smite the shepherd and the sheep shall be scattered.

Mark 14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mark 14:29,30 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. And Emmanuel said unto him, Verily I say unto you, That this day, even in this night before the cock crow twice, you shall deny me thrice.

Mark 14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with you, I will not deny you in any wise. Likewise also said they all.

Mark 14:32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane and he said to his disciples, Sit you here, while I pray. 

Mark 14:33 And he took with him Peter and James and John and began to be sore amazed and to be very heavy;
He was feeling the burden of what he was about to go through and feeling somewhat affrighted.
Mark 14:34 And said unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death. Tarry you here and watch.
That is, give attention to this important matter to me. He wanted these three disciples to be near him mentally and emotionally at this time.
Mark 14:35 And he went forward a little and fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.

Mark 14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto you. Take away this cup from me, nevertheless not what I will, but what you will.
John 12:27.
Mark 14:37 And he came and found them sleeping and said unto Peter, Simon, you are sleeping? couldn't you watch one hour?

Mark 14:38-42 Watch you and pray, lest you enter into temptation.(get off the track of high consciousness of which you've been learning from me). The spirit truly is ready but the flesh is weak. And again he went away and prayed and spake the same words. And when he returned he found them asleep again for their eyes were heavy, neither wist they what to answer him. And he came the third time and said unto them, Sleep on now and take your rest. It is enough. The hour is come. Behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise up, let us go. Lo, he that betrays me is at hand.

Mark 14:43-46 And immediately, while he yet spake, came Judas, one of the twelve and with him a great multitude with swords and staves from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. And he that betrayed him had given them a token saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss that same is he. Take him and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goes straightway to him and said, Master, master and kissed him. And they laid their hands on him and took him.

Mark 14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword and smote a servant of the high priest and cut off his ear.

Mark 14:48 And Emmanuel answered and said unto them, Are you come out as against a thief with swords and with staves to take me?

Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching and you took me not, but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Mark 14:50 And they all forsook him and fled.

Mark 14:51,52 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body and the young men laid hold on him. And he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.

Mark 14:53 And they led Emmanuel away to the high priest and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Mark 14:54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest and he sat with the servants and warmed himself at the fire.

Mark 14:55-57 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Emmanuel to put him to death and found none. For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain and bare false witness against him, saying,

Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands and within three days I will build another made without hands.

Mark 14:59 But neither so did their witness agree together.

Mark 14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst and asked Emmanuel, saying, Answer you nothing? what is it which these witness against you? 

Mark 14:61 But he held his peace and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him and said unto him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed.(referring to God)?

Mark14:62 And Emmanuel said, I am and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.
When was this to be?
Mark 14:63 Then the high priest rent.(tore).his clothes and said, What need we any further witnesses?
Was a sign to others there that he thought what Emmanuel was saying was ridiculous.
Mark 14:64 You have heard the blasphemy. What think you? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

Mark 14:65 And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to buffet him and to say unto him, Prophesy and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.

Mark 14:66-69 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there came one of the maids of the high priest. And when she saw Peter warming himself she looked upon him and said, And you also were with Emmanuel of Nazareth. But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what you say. And he went out into the porch and the cock crew. And a maid saw him again and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.

Mark 14:70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely you are one of them for you are a Galilaean and your speech agrees thereto.

Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom you speak.

Mark 14:72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Emmanuel said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, you shall deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Mark 15:1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council.(?) and bound Emmanuel and carried him away and delivered him to Pilate.

Mark 15:2 And Pilate asked him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, You said it.

Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused him of many things, but he answered nothing.

Mark 15:4,5 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answer you nothing? behold how many things they witness against you. But Emmanuel answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled.(what's with this guy? he says nothing in his defense).

Mark 15:6-14 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him.(Four Fold Gospel: Josephus tells us in his The Antiquities of the Jews 18.3.2, that there had been an insurrection against Pilate's government about that time caused by the taking of money from the temple treasury {Jewish} by Pilate {a Roman} for the construction of a Eoman aqueduct. This may have been the affair here referred to, for in it many lost their lives), who had committed murder in the insurrection. And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. But Pilate answered them, saying, Will you that I release unto you the King of the Jews? For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will you then that I shall do unto him whom you call the King of the Jews? And they cried out again, Crucify him. Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil has he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. 

Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them and delivered Emmanuel, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

Mark 15:16-20 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium and they called together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple and platted a crown of thorns and put it about his head, And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote him on the head with a reed and did spit upon him and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him and put his own clothes on him and led him out to crucify him.

Mark 15:21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.

Mark 15:22 And they brought him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

Mark 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh. But he received it not.

Mark 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them.(why?), what every man should take.

Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour and they crucified him.

Mark 15:26 And the superscription of his accusation was written.(in three languages: Luke 23:38; John 19:20).over.(or, above His head on the upright stake), THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Mark 15:27 And with him they crucified two thieves, the one on his right hand and the other on his left.

Mark 15:28-29 And the scripture was fulfilled.(Isaiah 53:12), which says, And he was numbered with the transgressors. And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads and saying, Ah, you that destroys the temple and build it in three days,

Mark 15:30 Save yourself and come down from the cross..(John 18:37; Romans 14:9)

Mark 15:31-32 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.

Mark 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Emmanuel cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Emmanuel knew the Father would never forsake Him (?); what He was saying was 'why am I still on this cross, because I finished the work you gave me to do?.John 5:36-46; John 19:30. But this was prophesied in the Old Testament in Psalms 22:1. And why was He still on the cross? Because in this moment, the Father, the Great Infinite One, who designed His great plan of salvation for all humanity (John 3:16,17), looked away from His beloved son, of which all true spiritual persons are now equal with. He looked away, thinking 'My Son finished the work I gave Him to do and upon Him now is placed all the death of all humanity for all the wrongs done and wrongs that still will be done, so that in spite of that, nothing can ever come between Me and them again.

The accuser can no longer accuse Him, nor those His death covers:.John 14:30. God is saying, 'My Son destroyed sin, so sin will never again count against anyone in a relationship with Me':.2Corinthians 5:21. Nothing now can keep anyone out of being a member of the God family who believes in what My Son has done and this was planned before humanity was on Earth:.2Timothy 1:9. In this moment of Emmanuel's death, the Father was seeing the completion of His plan for all humanity. All sin for all time has been placed upon His Son, making us free, that is, free in Christ and this means out of the low consciousness we came here to go through for experience and into the higher consciousness of love. 

Emmanuel felt this separation from Creator-Father because of all sin forever being placed on Him, because Creator-Father will not coexist with sin or anyone in sin and that all means any sins you may still cause are covered. So, our life purpose is to move from our low consciousness and into that higher consciousness, called love. Being in Christ takes one out of the realm of evil for all time, so one now has the help to live a spiritual life toward its significant.rewards.

Mark 15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calls Elias.
Elias is the Greek form (New Testament written in Greek) of Elijah. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew in the original.
Mark 15:36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar and put it on a reed and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.

Mark 15:37 And Emmanuel cried with a loud voice and gave up the ghost.

Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Mark 15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Mark 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off, among whom was Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses and Salome.(wife of Zebedee, mother of James the elder and John);

Mark 15:41 Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him and ministered unto him and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

Mark 15:42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,

Mark 15:43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came and went in boldly unto Pilate and craved.(original 'asked'; why the dumb translators would choose the word 'craved' is anybody's guess or maybe it was those who changed the wording much later).the body of Emmanuel.

Mark 15:44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.

Mark 15:45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.

Mark 15:46 And he bought fine linen and took him down and wrapped him in the linen and laid him in a sepulchre.(burial vault).which was hewn out of a rock and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.

Mark 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

Mark 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mark 16:3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was already rolled away, for it was very great.

Mark 16:5-7 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment and they were affrighted. And he said unto them, Be not affrighted. You seek Emmanuel of Nazareth, which was crucified. He is risen. He is not here. Behold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goes before you into Galilee. There shall you see him as he said unto you.

Mark 16:8 And they went out quickly and fled from the sepulchre, for they trembled and were amazed. Neither said they any thing to any man, for they were afraid.

Mark 16:9 Now when Emmanuel was risen.early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Mark 16:10,11 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept...And they, when they had heard that he was alive and had been seen of her, believed not.

Mark 16:12,13 After that he appeared in another form.(in the higher consciousness nothing is impossible).unto two of them, as they walked and went into the country...And they went and told it unto the residue. Neither believed they them.

Mark 16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat.(food, eating).and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go you into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go you into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

The first thing he wanted them to do was to get the message to others.

Why get the message to others?.Isaiah 25:7. Getting the message that caused quite the stir among people back then.(*), means to tell others, but how? The original word for 'preach' in the original is also 'herald', 'publish' and so means to reach others and there are ways to do this and ways not to. Before you can reach others and therefore be an impetus for them also to partake in getting the good news of what the kingdom of God really means, out to even more others, one has to first build his or her own foundation:.1Corinthians 3:10,11; Ephesians 2:19-22; Hebrews 6:1,2. How does one build his or her foundation?.1, 2..(*)

So, once the foundation of God is built in you, how to get it to others, if one's heart is inclined to do this? The disciples were told to go into all the world and they did:.verse 20 below, but something wasn't correct. What was it? 

The main disciples were assured that they would be protected, but all of them except John were martyred. Where was the protection they were promised?.Luke 10:19

What was missing and did the disciples take off to fulfill the commission Christ gave them to 'go into all the world' with His message, without much thinking about it? They were believers! They were, as they say, 'gung ho' individuals.

Mark 16:16 He that believes and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believes not shall be damned.
Original for 'damned' is 'separated according to his belief':.Mark 3:29. That is, it's his own beliefs that separate him and how great the separation from the spiritual pathway is depends on him. Some people are much more obstinate than others. Unbelief is a fatal flaw, as it locks one out of the reality of the good things in the spiritual world, because belief is the key to unlocking them. Without it, one just continues on being subject to the influences of the mass mind of humanity and thus, in the low consciousness 3rd dimensional.state of living dead.

Baptism has changed from the physical to the spiritual:.Hebrews 5:14-6:3.

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18 They will take up serpents.(Acts 28:2-6).and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick and they'll recover.
It's if one is in an untoward situation, he can trust God will protect him. It's not a trying God to prove that this stuff works, for that would preclude.faith:.Matthew 4:7. What about this 'laying hands on the sick' today?.Hebrews 6:1,2. So we grow as we go along in life, that is, if we are of a mind to, that is, having made the choice to:.Isaiah 28:10.
Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them.(the disciples:.Matthew 10:1-4), he was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God.
He appeared like smoke from a chimney rising for a short while and then is absorbed into the nothingness, becoming invisible.

'On the right hand of God'..Barnes Notes: This phrase is taken from the manner of speaking among people at the time and means that he was exalted to honour and power in the heavens. It was esteemed the place of the highest honor to be seated at the right hand of a prince. So, to be seated at the right hand of God, means only that Emmanuel is exalted to the highest honor of the universe:.Ephesians 1:20,21. Acts 7:55,56.

Mark 16:20 And they went forth and preached everywhere.(but, it would have been more powerful and with far less problems if they had reached out this way:.verse 15 above), the Lord working with them confirming the word with signs following.
....next New Testament book is Luke
