Lessons from Mark (A Time to Keep Silent, part 2)

And the chief priests accused Him of many things: but He answered nothing (Mark 15:3)

I hate false accusations; it’s one thing when I am tripped up by one of my many  faults, but to be accused of something that has absolutely no basis in truth is an affront to me, and I attempt to persuade others of the truth.

2 Cor 1 tells us that “God is true”, and I often consider seeking truth to be the highest thing that we can do.  Some of the great scientific discoveries of the past were made by men seeking the truth.

But this passage in Mark shows that there is something above seeking truth, and that is seeking the Father’s will. Jesus was falsely accused here, but He perfectly followed His Father’s will and was silent.
