There was a young lad who lived in Jerusalem whose family followed the laws and traditions of the Jewish culture. This young man was taught by the rabbis and heard witness from the crowds who would gather to listen to Jesus' teachings and comments on His healing powers. One of his favorite miracle stories was the healing of the blind man at the Pool of Siloam. This young lad, John Mark, and his family knew Jesus well. They provided their Upper Room for Jesus and His disciples to celebrate the Passover meal. Preparations took place for this special event with both a joyful and a sad time before the conclusion of Jesus' earthly life.
