The Best Laid Plans of Priests and Politicians

My teaching on Mark 15:1-15, filling in for Pastor Ryan at Hope Westside.

I started the teaching by making everyone listen to this which is not on the podcast.  I include here if you’d like to listen to it.  I explained that Robert Burns wrote this when, while plowing his field, he accidentally evacuated a mouse from its nest.  The famous line near the end, “the best laid plans of mice and men oft gang agley (often go awry)” is the connection to the sermon.

  1. “He (Jesus) steals money from fish.” What a fantastic way to summarize how silly the false witnesses sound. I’m going to remember and use that line for a long time.
