Lent 17: Withered sabbath...

Jesus, getting closer and closer to what many presume he knew was coming, begins to lose patience. We don't see him completely lose his temper, but I get the sense that he is definitely frustrated. Although Mark's gospel moves at a significantly faster pace than the other gospels, Jesus has still been ministering for some time and apparently, the religious leaders of his time still don't get it.
