Mark 14:52


he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.

  1. Maybe it’s not a big deal, but I think this guy is a good picture of our need for the blood of Jesus to cover us. He is a picture of a pre-cross believer. Trying to follow Jesus in the dark, without the Holy Spirit, without the Blood of the Son of Man. He’s so easily captured and stripped naked by the captors.
    The picture of the Passover event is on this post because of the correlation between that and this event happening to this “young man” trying to follow Jesus. I want to point out that this is a pre-cross event, so the young man can’t be covered by the blood of Jesus yet… or could he? I know that it fulfilled everything and changed everything when God came to us humans, died for us humans, and also resurrected Himself as a man. However, He was always our savior, even before the Son saved us. God always was God. God always noticed and had mercy on believers. This young man in this verse who is running around trying to figure out what the deal is with Jesus, in inadequate covering, and even that little clothing gets snatched from his flesh. That reminds me of the talents, when Jesus said, “Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”
    I know that Jesus truly did save the world with what he did as a human, but I’m just trying to say that He was always gonna do that. We were always waiting for the foretold Messiah, but if someone had faith in that Christ before he fulfilled his appointed time, you still got the Blood of the Lamb covering you. I’m not at all trying to diminish the significance of the cross, what I’m trying to diminish is the constraint of time. I am considering the possibility that everyone in “Abraham’s Bosom” was made to stand before God after Jesus made it possible to stand. Those people, even Abraham, died as believers and now they are truly cleansed eternally by the blood of Jesus.
