This Week's Update

Some questions for your consideration. I know I should have done this earlier. Sorry.

Read Mark 1:1-20
1. The word 'gospel' means 'good news'. Mark begins his book of good news with 3 statements about Jesus.
a) by the Old Testament prophets (messengers) (Mark 1:2-3)
b) by John the Baptist (Mark 1:7)
c) by God himself (Mark 1:11)

What do each say about Jesus?

Read Mark 1:21 - 2:17
2. In chapters 1 & 2 Jesus shows his authority in different situations. (See Mark 1:16-20, 21-22, 23-28, 40-45, 2:1-12)
When Jesus speaks or acts, what sort of things happen?

Read Mark 2:18-3:6
3. Even at this early stage, Jesus divided opinions. Some people were amazed by him, while others were enraged.
What are your early impressions of Jesus?

Do you have questions about Mark 1:1-3:36?
