CURRENT SERMON SERIES

Journey through the Book of Mark
We continue with a study of the Gospel of Mark that will take us to Easter Sunday. Of all four gospel books in the New Testament, Mark is probably the one that is least often studied. This account of the life of Jesus, originally written primarily to Gentile believers living in Rome in the middle of the first century AD, shows Him primarily as a suffering servant.

… Beyond Galilee
February 17
Mark 6

In chapter 6 Jesus demonstrates how he mobilized and ministered with his apostles to reach the masses. He sent them out with the same message he had been preaching but then he also ministered alongside them in performing one of his most popular miracles…the feeding of 5000 people with only five loaves and two fish. There is much for us to learn about ministering and reaching the masses.

February 24
Mark 7

Jesus quotes a text from Isaiah 29 in reply to a question from the Jewish religious leaders. He delineates between commands of God and traditions of men. He speaks of honoring God in the way we live our lives, even when we are keeping traditions. Essentially, the heart and what comes out of it are the key to our honoring the Father in all we do.

March 3
Mark 8

Jesus rebukes the Pharisees and the current generation … (kind of like our current times) … for always requesting “a sign” of his divine power and authority. What he really rebukes is their unbelief. He now begins to speak of who He really is and of his impending death in much clearer language. Truly understanding who Jesus really is should lead to devotion unlike any other.
