Mark narrates Jesus’ suffering as an expulsion from the people of God, consisting of the disciples and the Jewish authorities, and from the human community in general.

If at first it seemed that only Judas would leave the solidarity with Jesus, Jesus now announces the apostasy of all disciples, 14:27, even Peter will deny Jesus, 14:31.
