When I decided to preach through the Gospel of Mark, I didn't really think much about what it would be like to preach through the end of it. We usually just tell the story - I've never preached on Maundy Thursday or Good Friday. It's been a really good challenge for me, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't considering preaching at some point next year during Holy Week. There's a lot going on in this passage - my sermon barely scrapes the surface! I talked about the role of the centurion and what this means for us as we see Jesus for who he is and then proclaim that message to the world.
