Mark 4:35-41; 5:1-20

Continuing through the fast-paced gospel of Mark, we come across two stories that happen in quick succession even though a chapter break is in the middle. First, heading to the “other side” of the lake, Jesus and the disciples enter a cataclysmic storm–and Jesus is asleep. But, awoken he speaks to the wind and waves…

Mark 4:21-34

If the world is getting darker, then we need to look at whether the light is getting dim or fading! We continue looking at the parables of the kingdom in Mark chapter 4 as Jesus teaches with simple examples the keys to the kingdom. We looked at the power of the seed–something that seems so…

Mark 4:1-20

Jesus teaches the parable of the sower in the opening section of Mark chapter 4. Pastor Steve explained the value and importance of parables to Jesus’s ministry, and also helped us apply the truths of the four soils to our own lives.

Mark 3:20-35

Jesus responds to the accusations that he is using Satan’s power to cast out demons in the closing section of Mark chapter 3. He follows up with a warning that ascribing the work of the Spirit to Satan is a blasphemy against the Holy Spirit and is not forgivable. Pastor Steve explains the often misunderstood…

Pastor Steve takes us through the middle section of Mark 3 where Jesus prays (all night, Luke tells us) before selecting the twelve disciples that will make up his inner circle. Steve gave us the backstory on the disciples we know more about from the rest of the New Testament and discussed why Jesus would…

Mark 2:18-28

In the final two sections of Mark chapter 2, Jesus deals head on with the religious expectations of the Pharisees, revealing their intense care for rituals and traditions of men over and above the state of the heart. Jesus deals with both their outward pride over their fasting as well as their refusal to understand…

Mark 2:13-17

Sometimes we don’t get the full effect of the scenes in the Bible–so Pastor Steve took time to explain the role and reputation of a tax collector during the time that Jesus walked the streets of Galillee. Having done that we understand the power of the story of Matthew (Levi) being called by Jesus to…

Mark 2:1-12

As we enter Mark chapter 2, we find the story of the paralytic and his friends who go to great lengths to get him to Jesus! Pastor Steve applied this story with a discussion of spiritual diligence and encouragement to press on in our pursuit of His presence and power.

Mark 1:40-45

Finishing the fast-paced first chapter of Mark, we find the story of a leper whom Jesus heals completely, possibly requiring for the first time ever the ritual of Leviticus 14 to be performed by the priests! Pastor Steve applies the truths of this story as well as looking at the pictures of Christ found in…
