Jesus had a large following and was considered by some to be a popular figure. The leaders feared that if they were to arrest Jesus during this time, it could potentially lead to a riot among the people who believed in him. Therefore, to avoid any possible unrest or chaos, the leaders chose not to arrest Jesus during the Festival of Unleavened Bread.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. the high priest

As the leader of the Sanhedrin, the high priest had the power to question and interrogate Jesus regarding the charges brought against him. Therefore, it was the high priest who played a crucial role in the initial stages of Jesus' trial.

The centurion's acknowledgement of Jesus' divinity is significant because it shows that even a Roman soldier, who may not have been familiar with Jewish beliefs, recognized the extraordinary nature of Jesus' crucifixion. This statement also highlights the impact that Jesus' death had on those who witnessed it, leading them to acknowledge his divine identity.

    The following are descriptions of the three women – Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and Salome – in the gospel of Mark except

    • A.

      A. They assisted Jesus financially.

    • B.

      B. They were followers of Jesus.

      C. They were among the sinners and prostitutes.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. They were among the sinners and prostitutes.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. They were among the sinners and prostitutes. This is because in the gospel of Mark, it is mentioned that Mary Magdalene had seven demons cast out of her by Jesus, which suggests a sinful past. Additionally, Mary Magdalene is often associated with being a former prostitute, although this is not explicitly stated in the gospel. Mary mother of James and Salome are not specifically described as sinners or prostitutes in the gospel of Mark.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. It was the day before the Sabbath.
    Explanation
    Joseph of Arimathea boldly asked Pilate for the body of Jesus because it was the day before the Sabbath. This indicates that Joseph wanted to ensure that Jesus was properly buried before the Sabbath began, as Jewish law prohibited any work, including burial, on the Sabbath day. By taking the initiative to request Jesus' body, Joseph demonstrated his devotion and respect for Jesus, ensuring that he received a proper burial in a timely manner.
