The Widow and the Secret of the Thirteenth Trumpet
Have you ever been curious about Jesus’ interactions with people? Rich people, poor people, sick people, desperate people. Some with great influence, others who would be considered invisible. When Mark writes about Jesus’ life and about Jesus having authority over ALL THINGS, he writes down the strangest observation, “Jesus sat down.” Then Mark masterfully tells us a brief story about a woman who had nothing, yet gave everything. Mark writes, Jesus “watched as the crowds dropped in their money.” It is here that we discover the secret of the thirteenth trumpet.
