Our Greatest Need

Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


This morning we are heading into the second chapter of Mark and we see Jesus (again) perform a miraculous healing, but this particular healing is unique in that Jesus also forgives the man’s sin. This creates quite a stir among the crowd, particularly the scribes who lead the religious establishment. This is the first of five narratives which Mark places back-to-back (2:1-3:6) to highlight the increasing conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders, that ultimately culminates with Jesus’ sentence to death by crucifixion. Each of these stories illustrates the unique authority Jesus claimed to have. Today Jesus claims to be God and the long-awaited Messiah who has come to address our greatest need.
