Mark (2018-19)

Mark (2018-19)

He has risen. He is not here.

Mark 15:25-16:20

15:22-32 Crucifixion It was nine in the morning when they crucified Him at Golgotha which is Calvary in Latin. As they were nailing Him to the cross, He said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34a As they divided us His clothes and cast lots for them they were fulfilling David’s prophecy in Psalm 22:18 His crime was spelled out in three languages Greek, Latin, and Hebrew THE KING OF THE JEWS. In…
"Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "You have said so," Jesus replied.

Mark 15:1-37

REVIEW 14:52-65 Kangaroo court. The term kangaroo court did not exist in Jesus’ time, but it would certainly fit as trials were never to occur in a private home, but in a public place where witnesses could be found. Notice how the false testimonies set up ahead of time did not even agree enough for a conviction. As you know two witnesses were required per Deuteronomy 17:6. So the chief priest finally asked Jesus a question (v61) He had to…
Yet not what I will, but what you will. Mark 14:36

Mark 14:26-72

The Hymn, The Arrest, The Trial, Peter’s Denial 14:26 The Hymn they sang. Jesus sang a song with His disciples on His way to be arrested and crucified. He sang a song! What did He sing? The Passover meal always ended with singing three Psalms known as the Hallel, Psalms 116, 117, and 118. The last being Psalm 118. Let’s look at three verses in this Psalm 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 23 This…
This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.

Mark 14:10-26

Review – Three Questions Asked Last Week Q1: How many of you have shared your faith with a stranger? Q2: How many of you have invited someone to church – especially someone who has never been. Q3: How many of you have shared your faith/testimony with a stranger – a lost soul? 14:6-9 Then Jesus spoke. Leave her alone. I believe His voice thundered – at least in my imagination. Jesus acknowledged she had been listening and she came and…
Truly I tell you wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.

Mark 14:1-9

Review – chapter 13 13:8 The Sign of the End of the Age. Troubles on a global scale would seem to signal the end of the age, but Jesus added These are the beginning of birth pangs. 13:14-23 Second half of Tribulation. The first half is described in Matthew 24:9-14 with verse 15 as the transition verse almost identical to Mark 13:14. The sign of the end of the age will be the abomination of desolation. From Daniel and Revelation…
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

Resurrection Sunday 2019

Anointed Twice Mark 14:1-9 An anointing of Jesus with nard by a woman who would be remembered wherever the gospel Acts 10:37-38 Peter speaks of God anointing Jesus after His baptism Last Supper Mark 14:22-25 Jesus provides instructions for communion that we follow to this day. This was followed by His arrest, flogging, crucifixion – and burial. Three days later He rose to unbelief. Unbelief/Belief Mark 16:9-13 The unbelief was incredible! Three witnesses, yet the unbelief persisted. Mark 16:14 Jesus…
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Mark 13:1-37

Jesus Foretells The Future Review – Connecting A Few Threads Micah 2:1-2, Mark 7:9-13, 11:16-17, 11:29-30, Matthew 3:7-8 What were the Pharisees and Sadducees truly like? Mark 10:20-22, 12:17, 12:41-44, 12:30 What does it mean to give to God what is God’s? 13:1-2 Jesus foretells the destruction of the temple. Largest stone still visible can be seen in the western wall tunnel. It has an estimated weight of 570 tons (2,000 pounds/ton or 1,140,000 pounds) and is 44.6 feet long,…
"Whose likeness and inscription is this?" They said to Him, "Caesar's." Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they marveled at Him.

Mark 12:1-17

The Cornerstone and Whose Image Review – The Fig Tree and John the Baptist Matthew 3:5-10 John the Baptist and the Pharisees and the Sadducees 11:12-14 The fig tree has no fruit and is cursed. 11:20-21 The fig tree had withered from its roots. 11:30 John’s baptism, was it from heaven or of human origin? 12:1-12 Introduction via 2 Samuel 12:1-10 Nathan, David, Bathsheba, and Uriah the Hittite Just as Jesus tells a story to trap the Pharisees, His Father…
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them...

Mark 11:1-33

Fulfilling Old Testament Prophecies Review 10:46-52 Faith of the blind man. Last miracle (positive) recorded in Mark. First time Jesus is called by the messianic title Son of David not Jesus of Nazareth. Bartimaeus would not be quiet. He had faith, he had no doubt heard of Jesus and made the connection somehow that Jesus was the Son of David. Why did Jesus ask him what he wanted? Jesus wanted him to express his faith by communicating his need. Mark…
Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!

Mark 10:32-52

Review 10:23-31 Riches do not have the power to help one work or worm his way into heaven. Jesus after saying v25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” He adds v27 “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” In other words, Grace or Salvation is totally outside the sphere of human capacity.…
Mark 10:14

Mark 10:13-31

Divorce – The Lord said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot. Jeremiah 3:6-4:4 Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another? Judah has been unfaithful. A detestable thing…
