The Gospel of Mark (Page 2)

Mark 6, Part One

Faith is important in opening the way for miracles but how can we grow in faith? Susan and Chris explore this theme from Mark 6. We are all challenged to take steps of faith as our hearts are softened and we grow in understanding.

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.

Mark 4

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.
