Eight Evidences That Jesus is God’s Son (Mark 1)
A voice from heaven, a dusty defeated devil, and that’s just two of the eight stories Mark tells us that prove Jesus is God’s Son.
A New Era (Mark 2:21-22)
Everyone has a rhythm; religion is no different, some of the biggest controversies come from changing the routine. Jesus brought a new way of connecting with God, and that change was met with resistance.
Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Mark 3)
Jesus spoke of an unforgivable sin, what is it? And most importantly, am I guilty of it? Can I repent today and be forgiven?
Insiders and outsiders (Mark 4:1-25, 33-34)
Who does the Kingdom of God belong too? The answer is found in the greatest parable ever told. Jesus is the Kingdom of God, the covered lamp now uncovered.
Who is this man? (Mark 4-5:20)
With little accuracy Meteorologist forecast weather, yet, Jesus calms the raging winds with three words (peace, be still). Chains couldn’t restrain the demonic, yet, Jesus gives a man peace from his demons. Who is this man?
No hometown love (Mark 5:21-6:6)
The hometown crowd wasn’t impressed with Jesus, after all, he was a carpenter’s son, the son of an alleged adulterous woman. How could strangers believe in him, but not his own people?
The price of following Jesus (Mark 6:7-56)
Jesus never intended to be a solo act, though he is the main event, he calls those who belong to him to take his message to the world.
Missing the point (Mark 7:1-23)
On the surface, sin appears to be what we do, change what we do, and we are good with God, right? Not according to Jesus!
Don’t eat the Bread (Mark 8:11-30)
Avoid the Pharisee’s bakery, whatever they are cooking up is bad…
Losing is Winning (Mark 8:31-38)
In this world, victory is achieved by overpowering or overcoming, while yielding and surrender are viewed as weakness. Not so in the Kingdom of God.
Who is the Greatest? (Mark 9:30-44)
How does God define greatness? Are the greatest among us those who cross the finish line first?
Child-like faith (Mark 10:13-31)
The little ones let nothing stop them from coming to Jesus. They are the best example of what it means to be a believer.
Hangry for Righteousness (Mark 11:12-25)
A fig tree without fruit, a fruitless people in the temple, gave birth to righteous anger. Would Jesus be hangry at your church?
Better than Burnt Offerings (Mark 12:28-34)
Often sacrifice is equated with faith and devotion, but Jesus points to love as the most accurate indicator of great faith.
The sky is falling (Mark 13)
Is the end near or is that a Christian scare tactic to keep the flock in line?
This is my body (Mark 14:22-50)
Communion is a reminder that Christianity wasn’t a theory, but a life sacrificed for many.
It was murder, and he is alive. (Mark 15:6-37)
We met God face to face and murdered him. Hell met God, and he abolished it. Oh, death where is your sting? Oh, grave where is your victory?
Go, and they will know (Mark 16:14-20)
They preached the gospel and set the world upside down.
