The second half of the book of Mark depicts the revelation of Jesus to the general population and his encounter with the religious leaders. We see Him challenging the religious order by confronting the Pharisees and other teachers of the law. He also drives out the Jews doing business in the temple. Consequently, the religious leaders plot His death and seem to be victorious, only for the Heavenly Father to orchestrate His resurrection, thus overcoming those plans. Mark 14-16.
