Mark part 2: The suffering- servant- King was and is the Son of God.

Jesus is *anointed by an unnamed woman at Bethany. Judas agrees to betray Jesus. Jesus sends 2 disciples to find the furnished, upstairs room, which has been set apart for Jesus and His disciples to celebrate the Passover. Jesus institutes the *new covenant. Jesus predicts His disciples running away and Peter denying Him. Jesus and His disciples to the garden of Gethsemane and taking Peter, James and John aside, Jesus is sorrowful and pleads with the Father to take the cup away from Him, but also says "not His (Jesus') will be done but the Father's". 3 times they fall asleep and then Jesus wakes them up to see His betrayer. Jesus is arrested and the ear of the servant of the priest is cut off by a disciple. 51* A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, 52 he fled naked, leaving his garment behind. ļ»æJesus is brought before the Sanhedrin and the chief priests and teachers of the law try to find false witnesses but even their testimonies don't agree. Finally ļ»æthe high priest asked him, ā€œAre you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One? 62 ā€œI am,ā€ said Jesus. ā€œAnd you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.ā€ They use Jesus' declaration of Himself to convict Him. Peter denies Jesus 3 times.
