Reflections From Mark’s Gospel: Chapter 6


th (2)

CHAPTER SIX: “TAKING OFFENSE AT JESUS: THE GOSPEL AT A RAPID CLIP” (MK.6)

            In this section Jesus’ teaching and power are an offense to his home town people (1-6), Jesus sends the twelve to preach and to heal the sick (7-13); John the Baptist is beheaded (14-32); Five thousand are fed (33-44); Jesus walks on water (45-52); and Jesus’ healing ministry continues.

My focus today will only be on the first six verses. I’ve read this section many times as a believer, heard sermons on this text, and a fresh I want to consider its’ weightiness.  This account is followed by the raising of Jairus’ daughter from the dead (5:40-43) which sets up the next scenario.

Now Jesus comes home with his disciples and the news about his ministry made headlines in the Nazareth Times GIRL RAISED FROM THE DEAD”.
