Mark 6 Part II

Jesus does amazing miracles: healing, feeding and walking on water. In the midst of this display of divine power is the story of the beheading of John the Baptist. Jesus does not set this prisoner free, He does not prevent John’s death nor does He raise John from the dead as He raised Lazarus. Chris helps us to explore the characters in this dramatic passage of history and to think about the implications for our own lives.

Mark 5

The power of Jesus, faith and practical help come together to bring wholeness to those who are suffering. Jesus words to Jairus still ring true “Don’t be afraid, just believe.” Chris applies the passage to healing today and invites any who are suffering to come to Jesus in the same way.

Jesus explained that the word of God was to be scatters widely. His Light was to be allowed to shine. The places of growth can be surprising and the mysterious. Chris challenges us to listen to Jesus teaching and invite widely. Do we still have no faith?

Mark 3

The Pharisees were looking for a reason to condemn Jesus and the teachers of the Law chose to believe the Holy Spirit was evil. We are challenged to look for a reason to believe and to truth in the Spirit’s work. Will you stretch out your hand if Jesus calls you to?

Mark 1

Mark is the shortest gospel. It is constantly aware of the coming conclusion of Jesus’ ministry at the cross. It is one of the earliest attempts to report and begin to make sense of Jesus’ ministry, death and resurrection. We jump straight in to the beginning of Jesus public ministry skipping the birth narrative and the book will close 16 breathless chapters later with the women fleeing for Jesus empty tomb trembling and afraid. We will be reading a chapter each week and asking what God is saying to us through His word.
