Modeling Mark's Chiasms: Mark 14, the Sanhedrin Trial

Sorry about the hiatus! Work overwhelmed me the past few days.

Here is the beautiful chiasm in Mark 14. I now have the entire chiastic structure from Mark 14:53 to Mark 15:39 laid out, I need to spiffy up some details and reconfigure Dart's chiasm for the mockery scene. I should have the whole thing laid out tomorrow night. Thanks to Joe Wallack over at Infidels for an important clue to how this one works, and also Gerd Ludemann's Jesus After 2000 Years. Enjoy!

Mark's chiasms are very complex, and this one here is a variant of his most common ABBA center; it goes ABAB.

This just realized: the final A' in there should be Mark 15:1
And as soon as it was morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes, and the whole council held a consultation; and they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate.
