A Sovereign Savior, Religious Hypocrites, and a Poor Widow

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

Jesus and his disciples have joined the hundreds of thousands that have flocked to Jerusalem to celebrate the annual passover. Last week, we saw every major Jewish sect sent a delegation to trap Jesus with their questions. It did’t work. In fact, Jesus responded so clearly and definitively that “no one dared to ask him any more questions.” Today, in Mark 12:35-44, Jesus goes on the offense, no longer answering questions but asking them. Now, at first glance, the three scenes we are going to look at today seem completely unrelated but at a deeper level there is a powerful connection.
